Subject: Inquiry from bicycle steel frame
Dear Ms. Echo Zhang,
This is just an enquiry to get an idea of your factories engineering and tooling capabilities.
We are a small outfit looking to partner with a factory to produce some bicycle frames for a small market not yet covered in the UK.
I am looking to get a small run of 100-200 bicycle framesets (frame and forks) to be built in chromoly steel to my own design.
We are currently finalising geometry and clearances on our frame drawings, but in order to finish these we have a few questions:
1. The frames are needing to run horizontal dropouts with disc mounts. In your current frames do you use standard catalogue dropouts and if so can you give me details or do you have the facilities to create custom dropouts to my own design?
2. I'm in need of some custom seat-tubes with a large radius bend in them, do you have the ability to produce these and do you have an upcharge for production?
