LEAD TIME
Custom painted bikes normally take 30 days plus shipping. Current lead times may be 90 days or longer. It has become very difficult to predict lead times due to Covid and supply chain issues outside of our control.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY


"My Kensuke is fast and comfortable over asphalt, dirt, gravel, whatever. The wide tires just eat up the gravel and country roads that I love. The guys at KH have been excellent in helping me understand the options, getting my bike built and fit, and making the odd adjustment as necessary. Sweet ride, great service!"

- Jose

"It’s so gorgeous to ride and is the most beautiful bike I’ve ever owned. It’s like going from driving a Fiat to driving a Ferrari. I had to brag about it and I received four texts within the next two hours of my first Strava pic. You guys are the best, thank you!!"

- Shelley
