We would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANKS to all the people that showed their support by subscribing to our mailing list for a chance to win a bike. Even though we have a way to go yet, me must admit the response was overwhelming. We figure that everyone that subscribed must like what we are doing, which is very encouraging for us.

We have also had a few enquiries regarding the cost of the PISTA frame. We will be sure to let everyone know when we have finalised pricing etc. In the meantime we are happy for people to submit an expression of interest ( non-binding ) for the KRES Pista. You can do this via the contact link on the sidebar or HERE.

Finally there is plenty of time remaining to enter the KRES COMPETITION, so spread the cheer and help us give away a bike in time for Xmas.

A Melbourne Handcrafted Bike - The KRES Pista

Well its been a while in the making, but it has finally arrived. We have pondered, discussed, argued, and revised, but more importantly we have learnt quite a bit about the process of custom bike building. All in all we think we've done a good job.

Without going into too much detail, the bike is a combination of columbus tubing and specialist tubing used in the motor sport and aeronautical industries. We fell in love with the profile that the aero tubing gives the bike so what better way to show it off than on a minimalist track bike. You can read more about the bike and see more pictures at CYCLE EXIF .
A big thanks to Adam the editor of @CycleEXIF for showing support in running the story.

We have a couple more bikes underway which we will be showing off in the next month or so, one of these will be a lugged frame, so stay tuned. We are also looking at releasing some stylish apparel before year end.

In the meantime, if you like what we are doing then why not enter the KRES COMPETITION for a chance to win your choice of a KRES bespoke bike and also be the first to know about all our upcoming news.
