Email your frame design to us; road, mountain bike, DH, foldable shopper, we don’t care as long as it’s innovative and most importantly the kind of bike YOU want to ride. It also doesn’t matter what material you use, titanium, carbon fibre or aluminium but try to keep it realistic, a BMX made from straw is not that versatile. Send us your design in any format, a sketch on a napkin or a framed watercolour we don’t care as long as you include the core geometry, the look and an explaination of the concept behind your Frankenride.
We’ll evaluate your design and if we think it floats, we’ll create a CAD drawing of the frame, post it on The Ideas Lab if we get good feedback then we'll and build a prototype.
When the prototype’s built, we’ll take some shots and then send you the frame for FREE! In return for the free frame, you'll have to commit to telling us and the world about how your Frankenride rides; write us a review or make a video, blog it, Twitter or whatever you fancy We'll publish the good, the bad and the ugly about your design on our site.
From your reviews, if necessary we'll adjust and we make a production prototype, then we’ll put it on our online showroom and maybe even sell a few. If we do, we'll give you a cut of any sales. It’s that simple, your frame concept bought to life for free in return for telling us how it rides. dom Bikes is inclusive, we actively encourage you to help us develop our frames through creative sharing and open ideas. We manufacture to absolute highest production standards we can, no cutting corners even if it costs more, after all we’re making these frames for ourselves.
If we choose your design and upload it into the Ideas Lab we'll even send you a FREE Frankenride Tee.
So even if the rest of the world thinks your bike design sucks, Kingdom Bike still loves you.
