Info for the uninformed

Here's some pricing and order process information. I realize this is long overdue.
I'll put a link to it permanently at the right, so it's easily accessible.

The ordering process is fairly simple. It starts by you sending me a note to let me know you're interested. I will reply with a few documents to begin the process, collect some information about you and your current favorite bike and gather more specifications for your new Boxer Bicycle. We then arrange a time to meet
and go over the forms together (or talk on the phone, for those of you outside Seattle) to clear up any questions before I create a proposal. If we meet in person, it's also an opportunity to take a short ride together. We can talk for hours about how to design a bike for you, but a 30 minute ride speaks volumes.

Upon your approval of the proposal and $1000 deposit, I begin the design process, including CAD illustrations of the proposed bike. After further discussion, and your approval, I create a full scale drawing and prepare an order for the frame and fork components. If your bike will have custom, handbuilt racks, I will also compile an order for these materials.

As things progress, I will provide updates on the status of your project and photos of the build sequence. If your project calls for a complete build, I will then require an additional payment towards the build kit. When the time comes near, I'll let you know to begin thinking about powdercoat colors and/or paint options. After that I build the bike up and you come for the first ride!

Please note, pricing is subject to change, based on marketplace variations.
