Paketa Custom

Paketa frames are built using a modified compact geometry with  5 degree sloping top tube or a full compact geometry  with a 11 degree sloping top tube. To accommodate oversized tubing, the seat and head tubes need to be a little longer. We’ve accounted for that by increasing the top tube length slightly; making sure that the frame is balanced and proportional. This also allows Paketa frames to retain the classic look of a horizontal top tube. Contact a dealer to make that perfect racing, TT, triathlon or just plain riding bike for you!

Dealer Inquiries

Dealer Inquiries

We here at Paketa Bikes are actively looking to set up new dealers around the country. We will protect the value of the brand by first protecting your territory, to the extent you desire, and that we can agree is reasonable. We will not sell directly to anyone in the territory that we establish with you, and our customer service department will refer any prospective customers to your shop, and let you make the sale. We will always maintain our MSRP for the Paketa Rocket frame and fork, no matter where the customer is. We hope to have a chance to pursue this with you. We hope to set up a dealer network in the USA that allows us to end web sales entirely in 2004.

Shipping

Paketa will ship all orders, freight free, within 24 hours of the order being placed, anywhere in the continental US. Orders that require special service will be billed at actual shipping cost, minus $25. We will insure all shipments, at actual value, to limit any risk.

Quantity Discounts

Paketa is excited to grow with you, and we offer quantity discounts of $50/per frame and fork on any one order of three frames, shipped. We also offer a $75/per frame discount on any one order of five frames, shipped.

How to Order

Ordering from Paketa is as easy as it gets. Simply log onto our website at www.paketa.com or e-mail your inquiry to info@paketabikes.com. Our customer service team will respond to your order or inquiry in less than 24 hours.

Dealer Policy

Now you can offer your customers unique high performance and lightweight custom bikes without a large investment in inventory. Paketa custom bikes are made of magnesium which offers the smoothest ride quality of any bike frame material. Our bikes are custom built from the ground up for each customer making it a perfect fit everytime. Our two road bike models, the Rocket and Scud, provide you with the flexibility to fit any size or type of rider. Since they are fully custom from geometry to paint job, your customer will get the exact bike they want. The Wac Corporal mountain bike is the only fully customizeable mountain bike on the market. Customers can customize every aspect of the bike including geometry, wheel-size, paint job, and componentry. The V2 tandem is the most high performance tandem in the world with complete bikes weighing as low as 23 pounds. We also make cross and track bikes that fit and perform unlike any other bike out there.

The most important feaure of our bikes is the ride quality. Once your customer rides a Paketa, they will immediately feel the difference between it and another bike. It’s important to have a demo bike available for customers to ride. Other than demo bikes, Paketa has no minimum order requirements to be a dealer. We do each frame to order, and we have very quick turnaround times. We only authorize one dealer of each type in a single metro area or city, so you can be sure that offering Paketa custom bikes will set you apart from all other shops in your area. See the dealer policies for more information.

Key Benefits

  • 1. Magnesium is very light. It is 34% lighter than aluminum, 50% lighter than titanium, and 4 times lighter than steel. Lighter frames are the winners in quick acceleration and climbing hills. They are also easier to steer than heavy frames.  Magnesium has the highest strength to weight ratio among all the materials used in the bicycle industry. Which means – more strength for the same amount of weight.
  • Magnesium tubes are stiff. Big diameter oval and round tubes are stiff and have very good resistance to non-axial loads. Stiff tubes provide better power transfer, so that less energy is lost. Also stiffer tubes make frame more responsive and easier to handle, gives you more confidence in your power over the bike.  Magnesium has very good damping qualities. Quick damping provides more comfortable and relaxed ride, so that you can remain fresh and strong longer.
  • Magnesium frames are excellent in resisting to static and dynamic loads. Frames do not have permanent deformation under loads of 800-1000 kg (1760-2200 lb.).  Our extruded magnesium tubes are non-galling and will not crack. Our frames have excellent durability and safety with practically no notch and fatigue memory. Extremely low fatigue memory means our magnesium frames last a long time and have a low notch memory, which is where some metals will fail after high impacts.  Magnesium is ecologically clean material. One cubic meter of sea water contains 1.3 kg of magnesium (1 cubic feet of sea water = 0.08 lb. of magnesium).  Our Magnesium alloy is highly impact and dent resistant.
