K. Bedford Customs

World-Class Bicycles for Over 30 Years

Al Comp

Our newest offering, the AL Comp is a light, stiff, straightforward machine devoid of  flourishes,  frills and superfluous adornments, a direct statement of the simple joy to be found in a snappy, responsive ride.  That's the way I like my bikes with form flowing purely from function. If you share this view, love bicycles and have even the smallest interest in Aluminum, I can highly suggest the K Bedford AL Comp be the heart of your new build. 

We don't overlook the details. But in the case of the AL Comp the details are all about making a lighter, more durable and faster-riding bike. For each build I assemble a custom tubeset from a selection of the highest quality double butted 7005 series aluminum cycle tubing. Like all KBedford models I hand-produce each bicycle to your custom specifications.  Welder extraordinaire Andy Keech applies his welding torch, as he's done tens of thousands of times before, and lays down some of the best beads to ever join tubes. Together we finish it to your specific preferences, however simple or ornate, and send you the best fully custom ride for your cycling pleasure. 

Clean of line, shockingly low in mass and utterly devoid of pretentiousness. Our new AL Comp is an unembellished, straightforward machine for riding made by guys who love bikes.
