All of our models are available as a frame only, frameset or complete bike. It’s also possible to purchase a finishing kit package, ‘rolling chassis’ including wheels, or a part build if you already have some components you would like to use. Get in touch for details on options not listed
Our Core range models are available with stock sizing and features. This means that it’s not possible to change geometry or tyre clearance, however you can still choose your finish and component spec to make it your own. For more information on the different types of finishes available please see our finishing page and our paintworks page. Build prices for our most popular builds are listed as a guide, but if you would like a configuration not listed then please get in touch.
If you purchase a complete bike, it will be supplied fully assembled although a small amount of assembly may be required if the bike is shipped via a courier service. We can build a bike using components supplied by customers, please get in touch to discuss options and prices
Yes, the Escape is designed with off-road riding in mind. By that we mean gravel tracks, fire roads, flowing singletrack etc. The Escape is not designed for jumps, drop offs or technical MTB riding, though you might be surprised how capable it is!
The Escape works well as a robust and confidence inspiring road bike. Fitted with mudguards and 35-40mm tyres, it rolls along perfectly well for road-based touring or comfortable winter training rides
We recommend a maximum tyre size of 700 x 50mm or 650b x 58mm. Please note that some tyre/rim will measure differently to the stated size therefore we cannot guarantee that all tyres of this size will fit.
We aim to have all ‘Core’ model frame sizes available ex stock. However, the Cycle Industry is currently experiencing major supply issues which has affected our ability to maintain stock levels of all frame sizes. If your frame size/model isn’t in stock the maximum wait should be around 3 months for frames/framesets. Please contact us for availability on Bike Builds.
You can buy your chosen Enigma directly from us here at Enigma HQ where you will enjoy a premium customer experience. Alternatively, you can buy from one if our chosen cycle retail partners, all carefully selected for their expertise, service and facilities.

Frame/Frameset Buying Options
The Escape has become one of our most popular models over the last few years, and is certainly the favoured choice amongst our staff. Many of our colleagues ride an Escape daily on a mixture of road and off road over the bridleways and singletrack of the South Downs. It’s also proven further afield, for adventure racing and touring worldwide.
The bike features generous tyre clearance for 700c x 50mm or 650b x 58mm tyres, and geometry optimised for stability on challenging terrain. There are mounts for mudguards, a pannier rack, and fork mounted cargo cages, along with a versatile cable routing system to keep things tidy yet accessible whether you’re using 1x,2x, mechanical, Di2 or Wireless groupsets.
Like our other Core range models, the Escape features size specific tubing. We specify our custom 3Al/2.5V tube set with varying tube diameters and wall thickness to suit different size frames. This ensures rider across the size range enjoy a consistent ride feel, with optimised stiffness and comfort.
As the Escape is aimed at off road and endurance riding, it features a higher stack height than some of our other models, ensuring sublime ride comfort over long distances. If you plan to spend most of your time riding on the road then we suggest you also check out our hugely versatile Etape, plus we also offer a bike very similar to the Escape that’s handcrafted from steel tubing – the Endeavour.

Enigma Customer - Alan Coholan
I've been riding the Escape for a month now and it's a wonderful bike. I've been enjoying every kilometre. I'm still making tweaks to the fit but the frame size is perfect so the tweaks are well within tolerances (thanks Richard). One thing that I want to mention explicitly is the quality of the work on the frame. The welds are extraordinary! The skill and attention to detail of your frame builders is clearly evident. It is something to behold. My thanks to you and all the team at Enigma.
