Custom Frame / Custom Built Bikes

This bike is completely customised to your cycling needs.

You are buying a bike made to measure, hand crafted to accommodate your physical and cycling goals, designed with your ride experience in mind. Your bike will be one of a kind.

Starting with the heart of the bike; the frame, the frame geometry is expertly designed by one of our superior Italian Frame Building partners.

Each tube of the frame reflects your personal body measurements to create a piece unique for you

While the frame is being handcrafted in Italy, we work with you to achieve the perfect build by selecting every component to complement your future cycling. Components are sourced from our finest manufacturers and extend to group sets, wheels, bars, stems, seat post and saddle. We only choose accessories from our range of expert craftsmen

They stand out for their differences, and make a statement of their ideals. A Custom Frame / Custom Built bike embodies freedom, commitment to long term health, a respect for craftsmanship and the history of cycling.

When you invest in a Chainsmith custom road bike, your bike will have a guaranteed bike fit geometry designed by experts. This will deliver better ride performance and enhanced comfort. As the unique, one of a kind frame is tailored to you, the risk of injury and fatigue significantly decreases

Custom Chesni

"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!"

Basso Diamante

"I wanted a bike that could provide a comfortable ride, that was stiff and I could race on, if I wanted to. I was also after something that was different, that no one had or really knew of.

I placed a lot of trust in the team at Chainsmith in helping me choose the right model. There's no way I would spend the money I have without complete trust in the team there.

On my Basso Diamante I am riding better than ever. When you have a bike like this you gain so much more confidence when cornering because of the stiffness as well as the ability to build and maintain top-end speed.

There's nothing more satisfying than riding a bike you think is way too good for you and then realising that as you improve and get stronger, you can make the bike work for you and not against you. "
