250 limited edition framesets stand ready and waiting — waiting to be celebrated out on the road as the very first frames produced in our US factory. Resplendent with rich, glossy color, these FOUNDER frames are the genesis of our mission to design, engineer, and manufacture American made bicycles.

The Founder Campaign is an invitation to join the beginnings of our HIA Velo family as we create and launch our first products and brands. HIA Velo is not a brand it-self; we are a bicycle manufacturing company similar to Volkswagen in the car industry. Just like VW owns a small portfolio of brands specific to certain demands or regions, we plan to create and launch some amazing brands and products in the near future. When you purchase your FOUNDER, you not only become the owner of a commemorative, special edition bicycle…you also become part of our HIA Velo family. For this reason, we are offering each Founder the ability to trade in your FOUNDER frame for any of the products that we launch by the end of 2017. We never want our Founders to feel like they purchased the iPhone 6 one month before the iPhone 7 was released! Your HIA Velo FOUNDER frame is unlike any other, but if you want to trade it for our latest product, feel free. You are a Founder.

When you purchase your FOUNDER frame, you’ll choose between 10 amazing PPG Vibrance Collection colors. Our Founders color palette is unlike anything ever offered before in the cycling industry — paint so deep and sparkly you’ll have a hard time peeling your eyes away. Minimal, tasteful logos forged out laser cut aluminum help make these frames timeless works of art.

The Hia Velo Founder frameset is available separately or completely assembled with three component options: Shimano Ultegra, Shimano Ultegra Di2 or SRAM eTap. Each build comes standard with Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels, but you have an option for the upgraded Ksyrium Carbon Pro wheels if preferred. Handle bar width, stem length and saddle are adjustable, as well. We want your HIA Velo FOUNDER to arrive perfectly set to your specifications.

Starting at $4,500
