"Getting on my Chesini was like getting on a thoroughbred racehorse. It was immediately more responsive, yet forgiving. I previously rode a Lapierre Sensium 200 with Shimano 105 gears, which is a fine bike, but the change to the Chesni is like night and day.
I chose a custom steel frame, so I have a bike tailored to my exact physical proportions and takes into account my recent spinal surgery. I also think it will outlast me. The team at Chainsmith were brilliant throughout the whole buying process. I now consider Ali, David and Ben friends. Their support was paramount when I was buying my Chesini, because this was not only a significant financial investment, it is an investment in my future health.
Since I switched to the custom Chesni, my rising experience has been fantastic and fun. I can’t see myself going for a “cookie cutter” bike ever again, no matter how well it is fitted. The Chesini also gets all the admiring looks at the café!"
"David and Ali at Chainsmith were a massive help. I’m the kind of person who trusts the judgement and experience of others and will happily take advice, and I felt I always got honest and astute advice from Chainsmith.
Having help to choose my own components was massive. So many options but David helped particularly on handlebars, wheels and even down to front light. He cares about all the details.
It’s a real privilege to have been able to build a custom bike, and it’s an investment in money and time to do it. But worth it, especially if you are riding regularly. Life is too short to ride a bike you don’t love!"
