Every time a frame is ordered from Reilly Cycle Works a full CAD drawing is made for your approval by our designer, Mark Reilly and the typical turnaround time for this is 24-48 hours. Once the final design is made and approved we will offer a tentative delivery date and this is approximate. Should you need a custom frame, due to different geometry and specific needs lead times can and may change, but be patient and you will be rewarded with one of the best bikes in the World.

Information to help you complete this form
Please take all measurements 3 times to get a consistent dimension, if they differ, take an average. Ideally please get someone else to help take the measurements to achieve accuracy.
1: Overall height
Stand up straight with your back to a wall with bare feet and around 15cm apart.
Take this measurement in the same stance as your height, press firmly under your crotch and with a tape measure to the floor in a vertical line to the floor.
Take the measurement from the bottom of the sternal notch, the V in your neck, directly down to the floor in a vertical line.
4: Arm Length
Stand with your arm as per diagram. With your arm outstretched hold a pencil in your clenched fist. Measure the distance from the centre of the pencil to your armpit preferably touching your rib cage. Repeat the measurement three times for consistency and average the results.
5: Shoe size, for example 42 etc
6: Shoulder Width
Measure outside to outside of your shoulders, hands should be by your side, this will enable us to arrive at the optimum handlebar width.
