There’s a joke in the bike industry: “Performance, durability, value………..pick two” – We believe there shouldn’t be a compromise.
Concepts of bike performance have become fixated on a very narrow focus. Race bikes are being marketed as the pinnacle of road-bike development but are compromised in the real world: harsh ride quality, low durability, extravagant price tags. These bikes invariably fall short of a rider’s expectations.
Our bike designs are born from this frustration of hype over reality. We get that real-world riders want real-world performance: strong, fast, durable, bikes. Bikes that can deliver performance and comfort over the longest distances, for years on end, and with unrivaled value. We build bikes for life, with performance that lasts.

The joke is that they think $3750 for a frameset is “value”. It may in fact be a very nice frame and worth every penny, but it’s not a value. Also a max tire size of 650b x 45 is a joke, who makes tires in that size?
It’s a misquote of Bontrager’s famous “strong, light, cheap, pick two”.
I think for less than $3750 you could get a fully double-butted custom frameset from Bingham Built or Kish… with a T47 bottom bracket.
As an FYI, those prices are in $AU. I haven’t looked up Bingham or Kish, so I don’t know if that changes anything.
