A great thing about VeloBuild is we are able to "cherry pick" the best products from the best factories in China.
Our buying power thanks to you VeloBuilders allows us to offer products to our specifications and standards. We often ask for re-enforced areas and other modifications to make your build go easier, be more durable and better overall.
So, when I read some of the big brands spreading stories of catastrophic frame failures… well, I giggle a bit. The brands use the same three tired photos without mentioning how or why the damage happened. One easy YouTube search will show many videos of frame failures from major brands under race conditions.
Durability you ask?
I am 6’ tall and sadly weigh between 195 to 215lbs depending on the time of year and the availability of pasta and Prosecco in correlation to my pocket book. The R-021 gets a massive workout each time I ride no matter the conditions.
Opening a new office in Shenzhen, China is just one of the BIG changes that have come to VeloBuild. Inventory, warranty, customer service and 100s of new products to choose from are all now available from VeloBuild to make buying direct from China completely worry free, easy and for the best price.
