    tiCarb3The newest addition to the K. Bedford Customs lineup is the Ti/Carbon Comp line of mixed-tiCarb4materials frames. Constructed of Uni Carbon top, down and seat stay tubes, bonded into custom fabricated 3AL/2.5V titanium head, seat and chain stay tubes, the Ti/Carbon Comp yields the best of both materials in a fully custom sized package. Finish off with an Edge Composites 2.0 road fork and you have an a fully custom frameset perfectly suited to the serious competitor or weekend warrior/club rider.

    Full-buff, bare Ti & Raw Carbon finish w/top mount decals or single color full paint are the standard finishes. As with all K. Bedford Customs frames though, full custom is the way we roll, so let your imagination be your guide on finishing off your dream bike!

    Full specifications and pricing will be available shortly but if you have questions before then please don’t hesitate to contact Kelly via email today.

    Hello Cyclists, Check out the “Dream Bikes” article in the Dec. issue of Bicycling magazine.db2a I was invited to participate in this years article along with several other very talented builders…….quite an honor I must say to included with these top level builders.

    The premise of the build was for each builder to submit a frame that they felt best exemplified their talents. My beginnings were in the classic brazed frames but I’m currently incorporating newer tech stuff, components etc. in all models of my frames in both steel and Titanium.

    db2dThe frame was built as a classic lugged frame  but utilized a BB30 bottom bracket and Chris King Inset 44mm headset and Henry James stainless steel dropouts This necessitated fabricating all the lugs from scratch.

    Anyway if you have any questions about this bike or anything else please give me a shout…..KB
