*Wait time (day of payment to day you get your frame) is 1week to 8 weeks depending on stock levels and choice of custom paint.

PLEASE EMAIL ME email@example.com if you have ANY questions about my bikes. I want to make sure you get the right size and see if my frames are a good match for you.

25mm - 28mm tire clearance depending on tire/rim model.
Custom painted in any shade you want. Pick a Pantone from this link below.
Weight 780-1100 depending on frame size and paint. (Brands fail to mention how paint or size impacts end frame weight)
2 year factory backed warranty.
1000's sold aka PROVEN design.
With or without logos.
Same race focused geo as Cannondale Supersix Team 2018 and Merida Scultura CF5 models.
These are timeless heritage style carbon climbing bikes. I don't release 'new stuff'. I just constantly run the most pragmatic options these OEM companies are producing. I add a small margin (smallest Ive ever seen and if you can find smaller let me know) for my time and effort.
I deal direct with the factory then ship the frames right to your door. Your colours, your designs. Easy to install parts. No brainer stuff. Why hasn't this been done before? Good question!
You ever wondered why carbon bikes cost so much? I mean 99% of the high end frames are coming out of China right now did you know? That is right. Trek, Specialized, Pinarello, Merida, Canyon, Cannondale, Cervelo etc etc. They are being made for a few hundred dollars by OEM factories in China. Then painted up and shipped to Taiwan for assembly and shipped from there to retail stores or distributors with massive mark ups.
That is the bicycle industry model.
Nothing wrong with that if you like paying a lot of different hands along the way for essentially something you can could get factory direct that has the same quality, rides the same but looks a little bit different due to a differing mould etc.
Don't believe me? Ride one of my frames, ride one of theirs. I have and that is why I started up this brand so people who didn't want to blow 5grand on a frameset that essentially does the SAME thing as my frames do, don't have to.
If you want to spend top $$ then go for it. I have. Ive spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on bling bike stuff in my lifetime. Ive owned so many bikes from all the big brands. You have watched my videos the last 11 years on youtube. You know Im talking facts here. Go watch that LT guy on youtube who cuts open the carbon frames from all the big names. They all look the same inside right? That is because they are essentially coming from the same Asian factories! WHY PAY MORE?
Pay more for quality control? Look how many brand name bikes crack and people have issues getting warranty on them. Sure most are just paint cracks or crash cracks but these days warranty on carbon products doesn't mean much in my experience. Just ask any of your friends who tried to get warranty on a carbon bike. I have. After my last ordeal I asked myself 'Why did I just pay so much for a bike when I could have got pretty much the same ride quality for about 2500USD less??' I wouldn't have had to deal with pretentious distributor staff who wanted to argue a clear design flaw that caused a premature part failure.
These are HIGH END FRAMES that ride as good as any $5000 frameset. I know because Ive owned and ridden both! The Pragma Glycogen is modelled off the Supersix Evo. 99% same geometry if you compare the geo charts of the 2018 models.
699USD in any colour you want shipped express anywhere in the world!! WHY PAY MORE? These Pragma frames are coming out of the same factories in Xaimen/Shenzen China as Nove, Trek, Cannondale, Cervelo etc. Get something different and fully custom painted to your tastes! Nove frame cost about 2500USD. Made in the same factory as my bikes. Trek project one cost about 4000USD. Think about how much mark up these Chinese bikes have on them...now you see why Pragma Bikes are becoming so popular..
WHY PAY MORE?? Why order from a dodgy seller who doesn't even ride bikes and get something that is unsafe?
Why waste time looking around to see what is good when you can just save time, money and fuss by ordering thru me. I order in bulk so get a price cheaper than you could get and I order from the SAFE Chinese carbon factories. There are a few dodgy brands out there selling stuff that I sure wouldn't feel safe riding down a hill at speed.
How to order? Easy 3 steps!
1. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org with what paint color and design you want. You can use novebikes.com or the Trek project one website to create a design you can send me. I will then send that picture to the factory in Xaimen/Shenzen China (where Trek, Nove, Cannondale, Cervelo etc are all made) and get confirmation we can do it. I offer my frames with or without Pragma logos. Let me know what you prefer.
2. Let me know what size and your shipping address is and then desposit 699USD into my paypal account under 'friends and family'. This means less fees my end so I can charge less to you. Let me know how tall you are just incase you order the wrong size. Maybe you meant to order a 60 but you accidentally typed 50. Hey it has happened before! :)
*I need your frame size you want. Ie 50cm or 56cm etc. *The Pragma comes in BSA (most durable) or BB30 (lightest but also requires more maintenance). Let me know if you want BB30 or BSA. I prefer BSA as it is easier to work on oneself. Also do you want zero offset seat post or 25mm offset. All same one price for any option.
3. You receive your frame in 7-30 days depending on paint design and stock levels. All frames shipped with tracking numbers via EMS.
4. Comes with seat post, fork, headset, seat clamp and steerer plug (I can't source long plugs at the moment so recommend you buy a 100mm Colnago steerer plug regardless of what carbon steerer fork you use if it is mine or an S-Works etc). Plus care sheet and free entry to my facebook coaching group.
699USD in any colour you want shipped express anywhere in the world.
Im riding one of these now. Incredible bike and as good as anything Ive ridden the last 20 years. WHY PAY MORE? Get the custom paint you always wanted at an insane price! Ive sourced a factory in China who makes and paints these. To save on costs they ship direct from factory to you. If you can find a safer product with a better paint range, better performance and better price let me know! :)
NOTHING comes close for performance, custom paint and price.
It is very similar geometry to Cervelo R5 and Merida Scultura. Almost identical to the Cannondale Supersix EVO. The Pragma Glycogen is a bike that will inspire to push yourself. If you want a more relaxed geometry then stay tuned because Im still hunting the best one down.
Things to know!
*You may have to pay import tax but it depends on your country. Most of the time you have to pay nothing but just be aware your countries custom may charge you a fee when the frame enters your country. If you have any issues with that or need an invoice just email me. So far nobody has had to pay any import taxes on my frames. Ive shipped to USA, Australia, Germany, Belgium, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and Brazil
*No paint job is 100% perfect. Out of the 100's of bikes Ive ridden if I have looked at sticker placement or paint finish there is always something I could have nit picked on. I have a pair of $7000AUD Lightweight Meilenstein wheels and they are literally buckled out of the box. That is right, the most expensive hand made wheels on earth are not even true and never can by because they are handmade.
*Please don't leave your bike parked in the sun or the back of a car. Even though the paint is very high quality and UV protected the sun can still damage carbon that is just baking in the sun. This is especially true for Australian conditions where the ozone layer is dangerously low. Australian customers please keep this in mind more. Ive seen a carbon wheel explode the tire off the rim because the owner parked the bike in the sun after a race.
*Please use torque wrenches on all carbon product and don't place carbon bikes in bike stands as the clamp can crack your seat post, top tube or seat tube.
*I don't recommend using ANY carbon bikes in trainers. Doesn't matter what brand it WILL damage your drop outs over time if you are putting out decent watts. Use magnetic resistance rollers instead as they offer better pedalling technique promotion and are more fun to use. Yes they require more skill but if Ruby Issac (google her) can use rollers then so can you! :)
*My frames come with headset and steerer plug. The plug is long enough if you don't use any spacers above your stem BUT if you plan to use spacers above the stem them PLEASE get a longer plug of at least 70-100mm. Colnago make these longer plugs and you can source them local or online. NEVER ride a bike with a carbon steerer that has such a shallow steerer plug that it does NOT go past the bottom stem bolt. You are just asking for trouble.
*Alloy steerer it doesn't matter because alloy doesn't crush like carbon does.
*NEVER clamp a carbon bike or carbon seat post in a work stand. I hang my bikes or clamp the seat itself. Carbon is strong but clamping can crush it pretty easily.
