Steel Mountain Bikes
Mountain bikes are very utilitarian; they can be used for touring, trips to the supermarket, commuting, or - best of all - sailing through some pristine singletrack. These are the bikes you ride all day, everyday. Just as with all of the bikes from DeSalvo cycles, our mountain frames are hand built one at a time to ensure a great ride and years of enjoyment. We offer these bikes in your choice of semi-c?ustom or full custom geometry and in two different Columbus tube sets to fit any application or budget.
Tubing & Pricing
'Semi-custom' is what we call our steel production bikes. We prefer to use the term semi-custom because although we have made the geometry and sizing decisions for you, there are some final choices you will make to give your bike a personal touch. Included in the price of each frame is a single color powder coat with painted logos. You will get to decide on the colors. If you would like to be more creative you can come up with a design of your choice, anything from panels to fades to flames to whatever you can imagine.
Let us know what you would like and we will give you a quote. In addition to the finish you will also decide on the size and shape of the tubes to create a frame that fits your riding style. Cable routing, any additional braze-ons, extra water bottles, racks, or a disc brake mount are other choices you can make.
Although our semi-custom frames come in many sizes, we know that there are occasions when you may want or need custom sizing or geometry. All of our frames are available as full custom for a $175 upcharge. If you decide to go with a full custom frame we will work with you to ensure you end up with a bike that fits you perfectly to increase your cycling experience.
