Waltworks Design Services

I recently designed a bike for a fellow who needed something quicker than I could build it - but wanted me to do the design work so that he could find a fabricator with a shorter waitlist.

For the record, I'm happy to do this. I have designed over 400 road, mountain, cross, track, and even BMX bikes at this point, with probably 90% of those being 29ers - which just might make me the most experienced 29er builder on the planet. Got a unique fit question or want a bike designed for you (or a significant other)? Not a problem at all.

Complete custom designs, including phone and email consultation, start at $150. I will provide a frame design spreadsheet specifying every detail (including mitering angles and all tube specs) with sufficient information for any experienced framebuilder to construct your bike. I will also be happy to recommend stock frames which may be close matches to your design. If you're a large bike manufacturer or company, I consult on design questions on an hourly basis.

Satisfaction is guaranteed - if you are not happy with the fit or handling of the end product, I'll refund your money.

To get started, simply send me an email and ask for a fit sheet/explain your project.

WoW!!! I thought dealing with customers was 90% of the hassle of being an independent fabricator. I know it took you three times to design my frame. You nailed it by the way!
With all your MTBR "mentoring" what will be next? Bikes in a box(just add heat). Design, tubes, mitered, welding rod. Everything that the garage bike builder needs.......sort of like Heathkit(if you are old enough to remember them)
