Made to Measure Bikes
I live in Spain and am a keen cyclist with a lot of connections with both able bodied and physically challenged cyclists. I have been amazed at the range of made to measure bikes that are produced here in Spain and one day I saw a super fit parathlete (Juanjo Mendez)
with a double amputation (LH arm and LH leg). It was at a velodrome and he was riding a track bike at tremendous speed. I noticed the name on the frame was Kinethic. I did some research and ended up visiting the factory in Alicante , Spain. I met the owner Juan Enrique Vidal who told me that after winning the 1994 tandem road racing world championships, he had opened his own bike manufacturing business. It is a small factory with a team of about 4 highly skilled engineers, but I was amazed by the wide range of bike they manage to design and produce. I ordered a composite framed road racer with Ultegra group set, which I rode in the mountains here in Spain for 5 years, but now that I have turned 65, I have decided at last to give carbon fiber a try. I have just taken delivery of my new carbon fiber Kinethic (7.1 kg) and over the next few weeks I will asses the differences between the two frames. Kinethic Made To Measure Bikes speak English and Spanish and distribute to Europe and Japan. Take a look at their video and pay their website a visit if you fancy it:
