A welcome bit of news for us here at Pipedream UK Headquarters this week was that Madison Cycles have agreed to start supplying us with Shimano groupsets. That means that for all of you who would like one of complete bikes but would rather a Shimano set up than SRAM, then one of our bikes should be back on your shortlist.

Unlike our SRAM equipped bikes which come in 2 options… SRAM X5 and X9, the Shimano equipped bikes will be available with Deore, SLX and XT, ZEE and if you’re feeling really flush, XTR.

We are continuing to offer our Skookum GBA (Gates Belt Drive Alfine) bike but now in addition, we will allow our customers to swap out the internally geared hub setup for another such as a Shimano Alfine 8 or Shimano Nexus 8.

For all those of you that want an Internally Geared Hub that’s a little bit special we can build a bike around a Rohloff Speed hub. Our Sirius R853 and Skookum 29er R853 frames are available to buy with Rohloff OEM Left hand sliders that do away with the need to use a torque arm and chain tensioning device.

If you want a super neat and Rohloff dedicated bike we can build you a Ti frame based entirely on the Rohloff Hub which means all the cable routing is Rohloff specific.  Frame only prices start around £1200.00.

The Shimano equipped bikes are available immediately. If you’re interested in one then please email or call us (07999 442268) for a price.

Evolution of the 650b hardtail

Our Sirius R853 has been 650b compatible since it’s update back in January 2010 which has given us plenty of time to play around with this ‘new’ wheel size. 650b has, until recently, lived in the shadow of 29ers but that’s all changing changed and so have we.

Our reputation’s been established by building hard-riding hardtails in titanium or steel and it’s a passion. We love these artisan materials which demand both time and craftsmanship to create a Pipedream which is “about the closest thing to a custom built frame”.

So, what place does an aluminium frame have in the Pipedream line-up? Well, we only use high quality tubesets and this alloy finally allows us to build an aluminium frame with the qualities and characteristics we look for. It also gives you, the rider, another choice.
