Our friends at Velo Cult — the famous bike/coffee shop, event space and tavern — are always up to something interesting. Their latest is the Custom Program.

Tapping into his connections to some of the best builders in the business, Velo Cult owner Sky Boyer has set up special partnerships that allow his customers to order custom, tailor-fit handmade bikes with extra-custom Velo Cult stylings and features.

Check out a few more pics and a description of the first two offerings below…

Velo Cult Rando:
Link: http://velocult.com/shop/velo-cult-custom-randonneur/
A traditional Randonneur designed by Velo Cult and built by master frame builder Mark Nobilette, this Velo Cult custom is designed with classic styling and all the performance of a lightweight modern steel frame. This frame is designed for 650b x 42mm tires, specifically the Grand Bois Hetre tire. This frame comfortably fits 42mm tires and fenders with integrated fender mounts throughout. The base model already has tons of special features and many more options like a demountable frame or internally integrated lighting systems. This is a fully custom handmade frame. We will measure you for a perfect fitting custom frame and even help you build it up. Turnaround time is usually around 4 months but varies depending on Mark Nobilette’s current schedule. Email us for for more info or to put down a deposit for your new frame!

You are not alone in feeling pain. The postion of the seat remind me that I need to schedule my annual physical.

It looks like a good birth control measure. Perhaps that’s what they are going for? Tight jeans and pressure on the coconuts?

Colorado?

Yes. It’s a very beautiful place where cycling culture has existed far longer than here. You should visit it some day. I suggest cycling the Dolores River valley, for starters. And no, I’m not from there.

I’ve been there plenty, and it’s great. I’m just confused as to why VC isn’t using a local builder. There are some great racing/cross frame builders using Ti just up the road.

I’ve seen the Nobilette rando frames in the white (unpainted). Really impressive workmanship.

Nice bike! Just make sure you get a good cable lock to keep it safe while you’re having a beer.

Way to go! Mark Nobilette is a super nice guy. He’s been building Rivendell customs for quite a while, and his work is second-to-none.

Are those lovely long fenders on the Rando custom made? My bog standard plastic ones are inelegantly extended with duck tape but those look the business..
