Steps for purchasing a Rodriguez Hand-built bicycle
long distance:

  1. Measure for your bicycle fit numbers
    Most long distance customers do this with a friend or spouse (see Fit Instructions) or watch the video instruction on this page
  2. Submit your fitting information. There are multiple ways to do this:
  3. Size Selection
    After fit information is received, we will work with you via a series of emails or phone conversations to determine your bike size
  4. Let us know which model(s) you're interested in
    There's a section on the PDF download for that, and also on the website submission form, but you can shoot us an e-mail if that's easier...or call...or fax us. We're easy. (At this stage we usually will exchange several e-mails, phone calls etc... because we really like to give personalized service)
  5. Pick your paint and decals
    Now for the fun part. Choose from one of our 4 standard paint designs, or go wild with a custom color or design. We offer 9 different decal options, so even our stock paint designs all look different.
  6. 50% Deposit
    After model, size, upgrades, options and paint are decided, we'll ask for a 50% deposit and build the bike. The balance will be due at time of completion
  7. Shipping the bike to you
    Shipping and handling charges are as follows (Inside the Continental U.S.* with insurance included):
    • $250 shipping and handling to your doorstep for a regular bike ($125 for a frame/fork only).
    • $450 shipping and handling for a tandem bike ($250 for a tandem frame/fork only).
