We view all our riders as individuals and as such all our stock geometries are unisex in design – offering 11 finely tuned stock sizes from 50cm to 60cm, with the additional option of a full custom design and build (+£300).

Because every Excel frame is made to order here in our Sussex workshop, we have complete control from start to finish. This allows us to control every step of production, and allows you to fine tune your Excel your way. From custom geometry through to bespoke finishes and more. So if a stock geometry frame doesn’t work for you, we’ll make you one that does, and with careful consideration on components we can further customise every build to ensure the fit is perfect.

We feel that having a frame that fits you perfectly is a critical part of the process. We have over 20 years of bike fitting experience and data to call upon to ensure your riding position is absolute pinpoint. You can make an appointment here for a fitting. No obligation.

Alternatively you can send us any fit data you have or if you have a bike that fits you perfectly, let us know and we can go from there.

Further information on our sizing and frame geometry can be found here.

Opting for an individually crafted frame presents the benefit of total customisation, tailored specifically to match your distinctive style and riding preferences. This flexibility enables the meticulous adjustment of each frame to cater to riders' specific needs, encompassing personalised frame geometry, customised cable routing, the addition of extra eyelets, and the option for unique frame finishes, including bespoke paint designs. Virtually anything is within the realm of possibility.

The Inspiration

In the pursuit of excellence, the Excel Ti64 emerges as a testament to our unwavering commitment to quality and innovation. We aimed to create something special, opting for low-density grade 5 6AL 4V titanium.

This exceptional material, renowned for its hardness which surpasses the more commonly used 3AL 2.5V titanium, sets the stage for a frame that harmoniously combines speed, smoothness, and comfort in a premium build bicycle.

Despite the challenges posed by the grade 5 titanium, our team's collective expertise and experience enable us to tame this extraordinary material, resulting in a truly exceptional frame that embodies our dedication to pushing the limits of frame building.

Our Signature models are meticulously handcrafted in-house, providing us with comprehensive control over the entire build process. From expert design and precision frame building to frame finishing, painting and final bike assembly, we manage each step to meet the highest standards. Throughout every step, we conduct thorough quality checks to ensure the excellence of our workmanship and materials. This commitment guarantees that the end product not only meets but surpasses our exacting standards, deserving the prestigious Enigma logo.

We take great pride in our craft, the dedication of our team, and our role as one of the very few workshops globally producing world-class handcrafted titanium frames.

All frames that carry the Signature logo are proudly made in Sussex, England reflecting our commitment to quality and craftsmanship here in the UK.

Customer Review - Tiemen

Customer Review - Martin
“Just wanted to express my thanks for my new Enigma. I have been getting to know her on the roads of Majorca and can only say how impressed I am with the whole package - the frame is incredibly stiff yet so smooth and the handling is a dream, I suspect due to the excellent bike fit. Special thanks for the paint scheme which has received a lot of favourable comments, even from the titanium purists. It’s been great to feel that extra spark from a new bike!”
