It's easy to forget that there are real people operating real machines cutting real metal at Chris King's factory in Portland, Oregon, so we wanted to show you some photos of what it takes to make these parts.
We hope that you are enjoying our Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals on AVT. Just a reminder that during this period our offices are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday from Thursday Nov 28th until Monday Dec 2nd.
For the month of November on AVT we're supporting a mission driven cycling brand called Blackdog. The idea is pretty simple, for the rest of the month we're giving 10% of proceeds on some branded merchandise to Movember to support men's mental health programs.
Local Rogue Valley builder Mike Desalvo get's a lot of attention in our Bling Builds, but we feel that he does so with good reason, and his 2019 Chris King Open House bike is a perfect example of this.
Chris King's Open House is an exciting time because it's when the company introduces new colors, and it's also just a great opportunity to hang out with a bunch of bike nerds. With builders coming from all over the world to be at the event, the range of perspectives was pretty broad, and it showed in the bikes.
Kellan here at AVT.bike, has been working on getting a gravel/all-around bike built up for the last year or so. As usual with his bikes, it's something special from local builder Mike De Salvo, a crazy paint job from Land Shark, and Ltd Edition hubs from Phil Wood.

We aim to ship out the majority of orders within 2-5 days of receiving your order. Many orders are assembled-to-order, or ordered on demand from our suppliers so can take a little longer than some other online retailers to ship out (we're a small independent retailer, not Amazon Prime!).
This allows us to offer you a much wider range of colors & specs at all times, but please consider this when ordering.
USPS is our default shipping method so most US domestic orders will take 2-5 days to arrive. For international orders this does take longer (up to 10 days in some cases), please choose an expedited shipping option from UPS or FEDEX when you checkout if you need parts faster than this!
Any questions on specs, colors, technical details please contact us.
