What is this Non-refundable deposit?
A monetary handshake of sorts by which you commit to the process of getting a frame or bike. I am a one-man show here and can only do so much. Juggling names, orders, and frame design takes time and I need to know you are on board before moving forward.
Can I visit your workshop?
To place an order? Sure! Otherwise I have to politely decline, this is my bread and butter as they say and a steady sea of folks stopping in to see how this sort of thing is done leads to- not much getting done! I owe it to my riders to get their work done in a timely fashion and that means keeping the distractions to a minimum. Thanks for understanding!
Do you do repairs or modifications?
On a bike I made? absolutely! For repair or modification of a frame made by another I decide on a case by case basis. Please contact me to inquire.
Do you do lugged or fillet brazed frames?
No. All Rosko cycles are TIG welded and always will be. I do braze the small parts and forks on some models but that is the extent of it. There are plenty of builders who do great work using those processes, feel free to contact me for a recommendation!
I am an inventor and have a design I would like you to build, can you do this?
How long does it take to get a frame?
Well right now it takes NO time at all. Since I'm not selling.
As Woody Allen said “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” ... but really? I make the frames in the order received, that can be 8-12 months. Sometimes sooner if things go well and life doesn't interrupt. So don't go selling your only bike to make the deposit! Shoot me an email to find out current wait time.
Do you offer complete bicycles?
Yes of course! I have partnered directly with many of the very best companies in the business to bring you a final product that will inspire you to ride hard and often! Please see the 'partners' page for more details and feel free to drop me a note if you have any specific questions!
What materials do you use?
Steel, Stainless Steel, and Titanium. Perhaps a bit of carbon here and there.
