KGS Bikes Adds Italian Bicycle Framebuilder Passoni to Product Line

October 1, 2010

SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ — KGS Bikes, a custom bicycle design studio in San Antonio, Texas, designs custom bicycles from $7,000-$32,000, with select components and proprietary geometry and designs. The legendary Italian framebuilder Passoni is now providing frames for custom KGS creations.

Custom Bicycle Designed Around the Owner

Kevin Saunders, President, states, “We have spent 25 years developing a bicycle positioning system that is accurate enough to successfully design one-of-a-kind bicycles for riders. These custom bicycles perform so well and are so comfortable that we now have a global following.” Saunders adds, “The framebuilder has a critical role that very few can perform well enough to meet our standards. Passoni meets or exceeds those standards.” Silvia Passoni, President of Passoni SAS, says, “We are excited to find that KGS Bikes has the Passoni Philosophy. This is why we chose them to become our sole dealer in the USA.”

While KGS Bikes has six different framebuilders who can provide custom frames serving as the foundation of their custom bicycles, only Parlee and now Passoni occupy the highest premium tier. Saunders says, “We have been working with Bob Parlee for years and his Parlee frames have consistently delivered the kind of perfection that our most discriminating clients demand. We have been looking for another framebuilder who could combine carbon fiber and use titanium to this level of perfection. We finally feel that we have a match with Passoni that is on par with Parlee.”

KGS Bikes has focused exclusively on the art of the custom bicycle and has built a reputation for excellence that draws a global clientele. Saunders explains, “When people fly in from around the world to commission a custom bicycle, they expect perfection. We are fortunate that we have people like Passoni to help us create bikes that not only are perfect matches to the owner’s anatomy, but are true works of art as well.”

Passoni creates custom bicycle frames made from titanium, carbon fiber and “Lightsteel” stainless steel, as well as premium components that are custom branded and painted to match the Passoni frames. Passoni adds, “With KGS Bikes’ ability to design the geometry for the owners, we will be providing custom KGS / Passoni frames that will be beautiful, exciting and available nowhere else.” They can be found on the Internet at http://passoni.com.
