We are pleased to announce that in addition to building custom Mariposa steel bicycles, we are now the exclusive Canadian distributors of Allied Cycleworks carbon bicycles. Our focus remains on steel custom bicycles and, of course, we will continue to hand build frames in Toronto.
But because of interest, we’ve been looking for a carbon option to offer our customers. Most carbon models were not a good fit. They are designed with compact geometry and mass produced in Asia. Our goal was to find a versatile bike that was well built, made in North America and that offered some custom options.
Allied bicycles are unique in the carbon bicycle market as they are hand built in Bentonville, Arkansas, but with Canadian heritage. The All-Road and Alfa Disc (road) models are available in 12 sizes. All Allied frames are designed with threaded bottom brackets. They are superior, easier to service and more durable: no creaking or clicking.
Allied builds three models of bicycles, each model has two standard colour schemes, but custom paint upgrades are available in all models. They are sold as frame only (including I9 thru-axles and an FSA headset) or fully built. Build kit options include Shimano Di2 and SRAM AXS. Every Allied frameset is backed by the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty.
