Nicolai Custom Build Bikes

You have searched for Nicolai Bikes and ended up on our Moonglu page. In 2016 Nicolai decided to forge ahead with direct sales into the UK, so unfortunately we are no longer Nicolai Dealers. 

After 10 years of working with the brand, a factory tour and building some beautiful bikes that have stood the test of time, it's time to say goodbye. 

Thanks for looking at our site and good luck with your Nicolai. 

Nicolai Bikes can be purchased directly through their website:

Lynskey Custom Build Bikes

Lynskey Logo

Lynskey Performance Designs handcraft world-renowned titanium bicycles and components. They're located in the quiet town of Chattanooga, Tennessee but the bikes they make are anything but that. There is an unequivocal purity of line that flows through every one of their creations - powerful, smooth, confident, and sleek. Skilled craftsmen create all of these qualities in each of their designs. Their most important goal is to create an empowering experience that fills the riders' passion for cycling and inducts them into the Lynskey global family.

Moonglu have been selling Lynskey titanium frames since they appeared in the UK in 2008. Titanium has always held a fascination to cyclists as the wonder material that outlasts all the other bike frame materials and has combined material properties that makes it ideal for bike frames. 

Since working with the Lynskey brand consistently for nearly a decade we have built a reputation for great product knowledge across the range, both road and mountain bikes. We have completed custom builds on a number of their models including the Sportive, Sportive Disc, Cooper CX Disc, Pro Cross, M240, Helix and R240 titanium frames.

How we handle a custom bike build

Custom Builds aren’t a walk through the door, choose a bike, pay and walk out item, they require much more customer contact. In most instances, we find a personal approach to the buying experience benefits both the customer and the shop through positive feedback. Many of our Custom Built Bikes have been sold to existing customers who have exceeding the capabilities of their existing bikes and want something that little bit special, but likewise there are lots of clients that we have never even met. Rapports have been built by either phone or email and ultimately we have built a bike to suit their needs and sent it by courier.

Moonglu custom built bikes aren’t just about full builds either. Due to some of the bespoke nature of some of the frames we supply, particularly Nicolai, we are equally at ease speccing a frame only or part build. The options lists for a Nicolai frame alone allows the customer to purchase a frame that it built by hand, to a bespoke specification, then painted in a colour of their choice. We have sold 50+ Nicolai frames since we started our relationship with the brand, some as frame only, some as full builds but each frame is individual.
