The Sonder Concierge Service: Your Bike, Your Way
For many, owning a custom frame is the ultimate dream; geometry, feel and function combined with only you in mind and details matching exactly the journeys you have planned. A bike that makes you proudly say ‘that’s my bike’.
With years of experience designing award-winning bikes, Neil and the team at Sonder can turn the dream of owning a custom bike into a reality. The right head angle, the perfect top tube length. Shorter stays or an eccentric bottom bracket? As radical as you like.
Whether your dream is a long-distance tourer that soothes your aches and pains or the perfect off-road explorer, we’ll take it from that initial spark in your head all the way through to the finished article.
We'll chat through your specifications and keep you updated at every step of the way; Meticulously sketched here in the UK, hand-built by specialist titanium-workers and finally assembled at Alpkit Campus in Nottingham.
Partner Up for Days of Enjoyment
Take the Continental Twin on a tour across countries or wheel it out for a day to explore new roads. Go fast or go slow. It doesn’t matter. When you ride a tandem it brings a smile to your face and the world smiles back.
We use titanium for the Continental Twin to give a superb balance between low weight, comfort and strength. It responds superbly when you settle in for a long climb. It takes the buzz out of the road and the sting out of bumps (which really makes a difference to the stoker!). And it’s been built strong enough to load up with everything two people need for an extended tour. This build quality is backed up by our 10-year warranty, so this really is a long-term relationship. A bike for life.
Relaxed geometry gives confidence and assurance on more twisty roads and downhills. Clearance for up to 700 x 45C tyres means that when smooth tarmac turns into an unmetalled road, you can carry on rolling. The Continental Twin has been thoughtfully designed to be a tandem you can ride on any road and not feel beaten up.
With mounts for four bottles, racks and guards, everything’s covered for your longer adventures. Load it up and tackle continental crossings, pedalling together in partnership. There’s something special about spending time on a tandem, developing your relationship with your ride partner. Wherever you’re going together, you’ll get there faster on a tandem.
