At Contender Bicycles we know that the right bike for you, might not be the bike on the sales floor.
Our Pro-Build and Swap-It programs allow you to get the bike you want, the way you want it. Whether you know exactly what you want or you need some help piecing it together, we are here to help. Our goal is to ensure you receive your ideal bike from the start, and we want to help you get there, starting with a frameset or a complete bike.
Build the bike you want with the parts you want on it… yes, even the bar tape.s
1. Choose your bike or frame
Select a complete bike or frameset from our large and diverse selection of bikes. Our standard builds have pre-selected components groups and parts that, from our experience, work well with each other and provide the best value and performance.
You can order “as is” or you can consider these as merely a starting point and create an “ala carte” build.
Ready to Paint?
Want something truly unique and like nothing else out there? choose a ready to paint frame, such as an OPEN U.P. and with the help of our expert staff and craftsman painter, you can create a bike that is uniquely yours.
2. Pick Your PARTS
Here, you’ll have the opportunity to choose your drivetrain, gearing, wheels, touchpoints, and more.
Have your own parts you might want to use for your build? All good.
Want to add a power meter or lighter wheels? Not a problem.
We are experts in knowing what components work well with others, what tire sizes fit, how to find the most comfortable touchpoints, and more. In essence, you envision your ideal bike, and we’ll work out the details to make sure it becomes a reality.
3. Finalize your build
Once you’ve picked your components, we’ll make sure your build fits you, your riding needs, and your budget.
Custom bike builds can take longer than something purely out of the box, so we will make sure you know exactly when to expect your new bike, so you can keep the new bike stoke going!

We carry an array of pedals, water bottle cages, bags, computers and more to make sure you are ready to go as soon as you get your bike.
