The Paketa Scud All-Road bike is light, fast, and strong

Disc Brake Road Bikes

Lightweight

Magnesium is the lightest structural metal currently available in the world, which means a Paketa disc brake road bike is extremely lightweight. Frames range from 1-2 kg depending on the rider’s size and riding style.

Shock absorbing

Because magnesium has the highest known damping capacity of any structural metal – as much as 10 times greater than steel, titanium, or aluminum – the ride is truly amazing. Road vibration disappears withing the structure of the frame, which means the rider can devote more energy into riding and controlling the bike. Your body will remain fresh for very long rides,  and you will feel stable and confident on high speed descents.

Guaranteed fit

Our goal is to build you your dream bike. Every bike we build is designed custom for the rider, and we take pride in guaranteeing the perfect fit. You can visit us for a full fitting, submit body geometry measurements to us, or send us details from a professional bike fitter. It’s your choice.

Custom Disc Brake Road Bike

It's no secret among bicycle frame builders that magnesium is a perfect material for a bicycle frame, especially a disc brake road bike. It's high strength to weight ratio and vibration damping qualities make it ride better than any other bicycle frame. It's the challenges in production that have kept other framebuilders away from it. At Paketa, our mission has been to perfect the magnesium bicycle frame, and we have done just that. Every Paketa disc brake road bike is made one at a time, by hand, right here in our shop in Lafayette, Colorado. Each bike is made custom to you. We spend time working with you to build you the perfect custom bicycle. When your bike is ready, you will have a lightweight bicycle that is stiff and responsive, yet more smooth and comfortable to ride than any other bike you have ever ridden. Your bike will be fast and quick to accelerate and it will corner with confidence and control at very high speeds. Your bike will be a joy to ride and you will want to ride it every day. The superior stiffness of a Paketa road bike results in unprecedented power transfer and steering response while the supple ride quality keeps you comfortable for the longest rides you can handle. It's time to upgrade from a typical carbon fiber, aluminum, or steel custom bicycle and realize the power of Magnesium.

What do people have to say?

“Dear JP, Thanks for building me such a fun cross bike. I can’t believe how this bike smooths out the trails and fire roads around Boulder. I can ride faster than I could before because I don’t have to focus so much on keeping the bike from shaking underneath me. I also feel much more confident in fast corners on loose dirt. The fit is perfect, and I love the paint job too. It was really great to work with you and your team on this bike.” – Nick
