Bicycles are our passion. Whether they be dedicated trail machines or daily commuters, we believe all bikes are beautiful. We believe a bike should be an heirloom built to endure, not a disposable commodity. We believe a bike should compliment its rider perfectly, regardless of size, shape or ability. These principes drive everything we do.
Corvids are constructed to the highest standards. Our build process requires a little extra time and expense, but we think the extra effort pays back in the long run. What does that mean? Solid titanium seat post collars, fully welded subassemblies, and frame alignment after each weld stage for starters. The result is a high quality frame that will last a lifetime. We don't do shortcuts here.
We will custom design your Corvid to suit your body and style of riding. If you have special needs, we will work with you to design your Corvid to compliment your specific abilities.
Our frames come in three flavors: Trail, Adventure, and Urban.
From old school cross country, to technical all mountain, to flowing dirt jumps. We love trail riding in all its various incarnations. Cross country stage race in your future? Sweet, we have just the thing. Hardtail enduro your jam? We can do that too. Just looking for a versatile fun trail shredder? We like your style. A Corvid trail frame's sole purpose is to put a big grin on your face.
Adventure has come to embody an ethos rather than a particular set of bike characteristics. It encompasses an ever-expanding list of styles that includes road touring bikes, gravel bikes, drop-bar mountain bikes, bikepacking bikes, monstercross bikes, cyclocross bikes... It's hard to keep them all straight, let alone tell them apart sometimes. In other words, it doesn't matter what tire, handlebar, fork and geometry combination you have. The only requirement is that you get way out there and explore whatever terrain suits you.
Utility is the theme that unites these bikes. They are workhorses built to help you through the everyday grind. Fancy a svelt flat bar fixie for your commute? Or do you prefer a bakfiets for hauling groceries? Perhaps a longtail to ferry your kiddos to school? And with all that stuff to lug around, we certainly aren't opposed to throwing an electric motor on your ride if it helps you eliminate a car. Hashtag bicyclelife.
Creating a custom bike takes some time. We want to make sure we get every last detail dialed. Expect a few months from first contact to delivery. Here's what the process looks like:
$2000 gets you a basic frame. An Adventure frame will run around $2250 and a Trail frame around $2500. These are base prices; exact pricing will depend on features selected. Build kit price can vary greatly. We have good relationships with many distributors and component manufacturers and can help you select the highest quality kit for your budget. As a general guide, plan to spend between $2000 to $2500 for a mid-level component group, fork and wheelset.
All Corvids feature custom sizing and geometry, a headtube sized for 44mm headset cups, your choice of 27.2, 30.6 or 31.6 seatpost collars, and two sets of water bottle bosses. We also throw in a seatpost clamp and rear axle 'cause you'll need those.
The sky is the limit on customizations. Common add-ons include: internal brake, shifter or dropper cable routing; additional water bottle bosses; rack mounts; fender mounts; accessory mounts; modular dropouts; curvy tubes; chainstay yokes for plus sized tires. We are happy to arrange for your frame to be painted or powder coated by a third party.
