ESSERE UNO DEI POCHI A GODERE DI . . .
. . . BE ONE OF THE FEW TO ENJOY.
We’ve been making full custom carbon bicycle frames since 2008. Originally, all of our custom carbon frames were made in the Veneto region of Italy with a company called LaVerMec (they do full custom for Guerciotti, Moser and Javelin bicycles, to name a few).
In 2009 we embarked on two new ventures, making full custom, lugged carbon frames and custom carbon clincher wheels for Corsa Concepts (Veloforma started Corsa Concepts in 2009). What we learned from these two new ventures helped evolve our current proprietary Tube2Tube process that we utilize in all our custom bicycles to date.
“What I’ve learned over the years in the industry has lead me to the process that I feel is the best way to build a bicycle in the carbon form.” – Mark Duff
VELOFORMA CUSTOM / SEMI-CUSTOM
Why do we call it Custom / Semi-Custom? With Semi-Custom you can choose from 14 different frame sizes in two different fits, Racer or Classic. And for a Full Custom frame we select the tubes based on your desired ride qualities and individual riding characteristics. Semi-Custom and Custom are both built in our design studio in Fort Collins, CO.
We offer the Veloforma Full Custom line in Road (Carugate), Track (Fiorenzula) and Cyclocross (Corsa CCX). The Veloforma Full Custom line gives you an exclusive design plus the same personal and professional process you find in all our bikes. And we get the pleasure of having you more involved in the build process.
The Custom Process begins by working directly with Mark and gathering the information needed for ride quality and ride characteristics. Once we have your size and fit selected, we select the tubing based from this assessment and personal specifications to build your dream ride.
We use our proprietary Tube2Tube process and our compaction mold process to build your bicycle. Our build process was designed and re-defined over a 6-year period and ensures that you get the tailored performance that you expect in a custom bicycle.
RACER, CLASSIC FIT OR FULL CUSTOM
The Racer fit offers a balanced geometry that performs over any type of terrain, with beefy chain stays and a proprietary full carbon PF30 BB for proper power transfer and a tapered, low-slung front end for responsive handling and tracking.
The Classic fit model provides the same characteristics as the Racer, but with a taller head tube so you can achieve a more comfortable position without giving up any performance or style.
Full Custom is built to your specifications. You work directly with Mark to achieve the ride you’ve always wanted.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
We design your bike, both on a drafting table and a working model in Bike CAD. Once the design is complete, you will receive a drawing of the frame for your approval. This design can be modified until we are both satisfied with your new ride!
Upon final approval of the design, the really fun process starts for us as we get our hands dirty and the anticipation for you begins. During the build process, we'll keep you up to date with pictures of the process.
When the frame build is complete, it will be painted, assembled and shipped. Then it's time to ride!
