Bikedirect Europe brainchild of Corratec importer Frank Clavis, the New Zealander noted for his bulletin board diplomacy is now up and running in Newtown, Wales, and is seeking commissions large or small.

Make your marque with Frank

Bikedirect Europe is a contract assembler and manufacturer and with the installation of a Holland Mechanics spoke lacing and truing robot can now also churn out wheels.

As well as seeking large orders from the well-known UK branded bike-assemblers, Frank Clavis of Bikedirect Europe says hes eager to produce short-run bikes for individual IBDs seeking to create marques of their own.

Is there a type of bike that you know you could sell but cant get supplied? Or do you want to retrieve some of the entry level business going to multiples? Contact us and talk through what you would like to do, we are not talking big quantities.

Whilst everybody else in the world is going aluminium, Bikedirect Europe believes theres still a significant demand for steel frames. Cro-tubed bikes need not be a thing of the past, or just the reserve of custom builders, says Clavis

With or without lugs. Traditional or New Age? Whatever you want we can design for you or build to your specification.

Bikedirect Europe will also be able to produce specials such as electric bikes.

We can build these from hub kits with a choice of frames, front or rear wheel motor 36v or 48v, or pedal assist option, or folding, says Clavis.
