Llewellyn Bicycles

Every Llewellyn Custom Bicycle is just that. A Llewellyn that is custom to you, your riding style, your aesthetic preference, but still a Llewellyn. I have no standard sizes, no standard dimensions, all of these are decided when you and I discuss your bike. I prefer to work with my own proprietary lugs and I work with certain tubes which I have found produce the characteristics I feel are important in a frame. I modify my selections based on you and your riding requirements.

There are five "models" of Llewellyn frame sets each available in Signature finish level and as a road, track, touring, randonneur, or fixed wheel ("fixie") bicycle. (Colossus is not available as a Lucentezza). Tubing selections mentioned are a general guideline. I determine the appropriate tubing for your individual bike during the discussions with you during the design phase of your bike.

Manorina FixieManorina (sloping top tube)
My favorite morning ride is through the hills of the D'Aguilar range, and in part, the Manorina National Park. The Bell birds, Manorina melanophrys, chime out their calls as I ride past. The Manorina traditional lugged frame allows smaller lighter riders to enjoy custom made-to-measure compact geometry lugged frame construction using Llewellyn proprietary design and Llewellyn OS compact lugs. This frame is similar to the Custodian, but with a sloping top tube. Available as a road, track, fixie, randonneur, or touring type frame and fork. Constructed with with “Columbus Spirit for Lugs” OS diameter tube sizes. Available in Signature finish level. Click on the name or image to learn more about the Llewellyn Manorina.

Cadenzia full bikeCadenzia (level top tube)

Llewellyn CrescendoColossus (sloping top tube)
Colossus, the frame set that can take all the grunt a rider can give it and this frame will give it all back.
A momentary departure from lugs. The inspiration for this Llewellyn frame set came from conversations between Dr Brian McLean (Cycling biomechanist) and myself about the possibilities of a new Llewellyn model with traits he desired. As this is a departure from lugs, it has it's own finish level.

Llewellyn Lucentezza Frame -

All good things must come to an end. This doesn't mean I won't do any hand polished lugs, however the full Lucentezza frames, while beautiful, take up huge amounts of time an energy and are a thing of my past. I have set the price accordingly. The current Lucentezza will be the last Lucentezza unless something amazing happens. I really enjoyed bringing this work to riders around the world, but the Last Lucentezza took almost three months of solid work which is not sustainable.

For those curious, we will leave the Lucentezza information on the site. Llewellyn Lucentezza frame set (any model, Lucentezza level finish, frame, fork, and stem) with single color paint.
