Hewitt Cycles provide both custom built bikes on either off the peg frames, or on custom built frames. Whichever route you decide to go down your bike will be fitted to suit you, the rider.
Position & frame dimensions:
Before each frame can be built the frame dimensions need to be determined, we will give you as much help and assistance as you need to finalize these.The position dimensions can be determined in a number of ways, click here for more information on Hewitt bike fitting
Once the position dimensions have been determined, it is then possible to work out some suitable frame dimensions that will allow your position to be achieved, although we are also happy to work to some pre-determined frame dimensions if you know what dimensions you require.click here for more information on the various bike fitting options.
Hewitt Custom & Off-the-peg frames & bikes.
We have a range of our own Hewitt branded frames, some off the peg, some custom built, we can also supply custom built bikes, using frames from a range of other top quality frame manufacturers.
Hewitt custom frames.
Design: As each frame is individually built, the design specification can be varied as you require, the options are endless, some are functional, some decorative, everyone has their own different requirements to personalize their frame. The tubing type & diameters can be specified, as can the construction method, TIG welding, brazed with lugs or fillet brazed are all possible.
Initially we would have a general discussion with regards to the intended use of the frame, to ensure it will fulfil all its requirements both now and in the future. Rohloff hubs, and disc brakes can be catered for and S&S couplings can be fitted if required.
Hewitt off the peg frames.
In addition to our fully custom built frames, we also have our own range of off the peg frames. These include our award winning Cheviot & Cheviot SE frames, we also have four Audax / Training frames, the Chiltern, the Aravis, Aravis SL and the Carbon Audax, there is also a fixed gear commuter style frame and a aluminium track frame. Our Cheviot was introduced in 2003 and subsequently won the Cycling Plus Touring Bike of the year award and also the British Bicycle Award. The Cheviot SE was introduced the year after and again won the Cycling Plus Touring Bike of the year award. Since then the Cheviot & Cheviot SE have become regarded as two of the best touring bikes available, almost all the benefits of custom built at off the peg prices.
