The Kibo frame is hand built in the UK using the strongest gauge of the quality air-hardened British Reynolds 631 steel for the main triangle.  The chainstays are also 631 and the seat stays Reynolds 525, and the forks Reynolds 631.

 

As well as being hand built in the UK, our frame and forks are lugged. We can build fillet brazed versions of the Kibo, just email us on info@stanforthbikes.co.uk to discuss.

We do two frame versions, one for an ahead stem with a 1 1/8" threadless steerer and the other with a 1" threaded steerer for a quill stem. As all of our frames are made to order we can have sloping or horizontal top tubes on either. We also do a step through version.

All of our fork steerers are now heat treated.

 

The frame and forks have bosses for three bottle cages, a front low rider rack and rear pannier rack, as well as mudguards.

We also do a version of the Kibo frame with guides and mounts for disc brakes. We can also build it with it disc brake mounts as well as screw in rim brake bosses so you have the choice of either - email us to discuss

Why steel? This is an expedition bike so there's only one material suitable for the frame and forks and that's steel. Wherever you are in the world steel frames can be fixed more easily (in the unlikely event that it needs welding...) and on a rigid bike the steel provides a more comfortable ride.

As all of our frames are made to order we will customise the seat tube and top tube lengths to best fit you, either visit us for a fitting or send us your measurements - click here for more info

For heavier riders we can tweak the tube diameters/thicknesses, please get in touch if you'd like to discuss this - click here for more info

All of our frames are supplied with vertical dropouts. Horizontal dropouts can be fitted if preferred.
