If anyone has ever gone onto Treks Project one site to build your ultimate bike (superfly) you also see the price $$ it costs. I found a company that will help you build a dream Carbon Fibre bike for a good price. They can custom build your bike how you want with a custom paint job or just supply some of the parts. I’m not a rep for this company just an happy customer.
My new bike break down
Carbon Hardtail Frame
Custom paint job
Full Shimano XT Components
Spinner 300 Forks (tested and ok so far)
29er Carbon Wheels 25mmx32 spokes custom painted
Everything else carbon (handle bars, seats, etc)
Just before Christmas I purchased a Carbon Fibre Mountain bike from this company and I would like to share my experiences. I went too all the local bike shops and then was looking on-line and found this company “Icanbikes”.
After a little bit of searching I found that they have a few websites an Ebay store, there are a few forums on some bike web sites that have talked about them. Talking with a nice lady called Crystal and finding the below information on one of their sites, on how they supply their parts to other “well-known brands”. They supply all types of carbon bikes and parts for Road Racers, Time Trial, and Mountain bikes with both hardtail and full suspension frames including lots of types of Wheels, handle bars etc.
If you have a look at their mountain bike frames they are very similar to some US bike companies frames.
I decided to risk it can order a bike, I was able to customize almost everything. I went Shimano XT everything and went with their spinner forks. They accept all major payments options I went with paypal for the protection just in case.
Took them about 20 days to build the bike as mine was a custom and only took only 6 days to ship the WHOLE bike from China to Australia tracked with EMS\Auspost. I just had to attach the wheels and insert the handle bars and tighten with alen key.
I’ve only gone on a few small rides ATM but the bike looks and feels great and all parts are genuine. If anyone is looking at getting a Carbon bike or just carbon parts I suggest you have a look at ICAN and contact Crystal, she can give you better prices than on their ebay site.
Edit (cause some people wanted it)
Here is a similar Mountain bike from a local bike shop for the people that want this info. I know it's not all the same components, it just a reference.
Trek Superfly 9.8 SL 2014 $5000
Merida Big Nine Carbon 3000 $4500
