Choose your saddle wisely.

Itʼs not competitive. Itʼs long distance and itʼs one of the most enduring challenges associated with cycling. A Grand Randonnee is 1200km (720 miles approx.) and participants must complete the ride in less than 90 hours. Itʼs not a race as such, more of a personal challenge. Many participants of a 200km ʻBrevetʼ (as the individual events are known) use a road bike. But many donʼt, preferring instead to ride a dedicated Randonneur bike. A very versatile bicycle, designed to comfortably carry a range of supplies. Frames are normally lightweight steel, optimally sized and angled for hours of comfortable riding. Elianʼs created a number of reliable Tour bikes that are strong enough to endure the distances yet comfortable enough to make it less of an ʻenduranceʼ and more of a pleasure. Personalise the angles and geometry of frames, select your own gears, chainsets and design luggage racks, mudguards and even personalised integrated LED lights. But choose your saddle wisely, because youʼll be spending a long long time sat on it.

The price range for this type of bike heavily depends on your components preferences and desired additional features. Every Tour bike consist of a € 3.025,- frameset including a custom made frame, steel crowned fork, ritchey WCS C260 stem and a Chris king ahead set.

How to order

Tubing

Steel, the ideal material for bicycle tour frames. All our custom bikes are made of high grade steel. The tubing we use are mainly made by Columbus, Dedacciai and Reynolds. Depending on your riding preferences, geometry and purpose we will find out which tubes will be the best, if we need to blend different tubes sizes, shapes, materials and/or brands to get your ideal ride!

Fillet brazing!

All our custom frames and stems are brazed using a silicon bronze brazing rod and specialist blow torch, we create a ʻfilletʼ around each join. Once the joins have been created then the arduous process of filing and smoothing the brazed joint begins.

Hand painted or powder coated

We can do it both! Making this choice isn’t that difficult. If you prefer a special paint design you definitely need to get a hand painted frame. If that’s not what you prefer and you want to keep it plain, we recommend a triple layer of powder coat (primer, colour and clearcoat).  

Disks, dual pivot or canti brakes?

All these types of brakes have their own benefit and some require different fork blades and seat stays. In the last years we have made all these different brake setups for different purposes and we can help you find out what will be best for you.

Triple triangle frame

We always add the “third” triangle, not only because it is beautiful but mainly because it will make the frames remarkably stiffer and nicer to ride.  

Components!

We know it’s difficult to choose, because there are so many different parts available. We will guide you by listening to your wishes and find out what works best for you. 

Handlebar and saddle

There are only three contact points with your bike during the great adventure of riding: your handlebar, your saddle and the pedals. It’s important to choose your saddle, handlebar and even the pedals wisely so you can connect perfectly during your adventures. Of course it’s all up to you with as much or as little guidance as you prefer.
