rack mounts or mud guard mounts, to bespoke bead blasted graphics. Create your own versatile frame that offers the perfect balance
of agility, comfort, speed and style. Perfect for exploring the road less travelled.
OUR inspiration for the J.ACK comes from the cyclists of yesteryear, from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s who would have had the freedom to roam the roads and tracks to discover new areas and landscapes that were otherwise unreachable.
The spirit of cycling remains for us very much the same as it was back then, with the freedom to explore uncharted territory being the driving force behind our first frame. We also believe that the road less travelled is more interesting, even if it has more potholes, bumps and stones along the way. Not every ride can be a voyage of discovery but we believe the journey is always more important than the destination (unless that destination is a coffee stop!)
We’ve also taken inspiration from the toughest one day road races such as Strade Bianche, Paris-Roubaix and Tour of Flanders, each a classic that
fortifies the reputations of the hard men and women of professional cycling.
The rough and testing road surfaces epitomise the beginnings of the sport of road racing, and remain the most exciting events to watch and ride.
Our philosophy is to fuse elegant design with modern engineering to provide a highly capable and versatile frame that can tackle pavement, paths or pavé. If you are going to embrace the imperfect, lesser-travelled road to discover new places and scenery, then isn’t it time you added a touch of style, elegance and comfort to iron out the bumps along the way?
That’s why the first J.Laverack frame offers the perfect balance of comfort, agility, speed and style, yet ticks those practical boxes too by offering powerful disc braking, clearance for tyres up to 35mm wide and allowing you to opt for mudguard and rack mounts.

The larger bottom bracket shell increases the frame stiffness in this vital area as well as allowing for larger 30mm diameter aluminium crank spindles that are stiffer and lighter than their 24mm counterparts.
Both gear and the rear brake cables are routed through the frame. Aside from being aesthetically more pleasing, routing cables internally protects them from dirt ensuring smooth shifting and braking for longer.
A wider head tube where the fork meets the frame increases the stiffness in that area, reducing flex and improving steering precision.
Choose between post mount or flat mount braking. The rear disc brake is mount is positioned on the chain stay, using the structural strength of the frame (the triangle that is made up of the seat stay, chain stay and seat post) to offer optimum braking performance.
As a guide, we’d suggest:
- 48cm: 152-158cm
- 50cm: 156-164cm
- 52cm: 162-170cm
- 54cm: 168-178cm
- 56cm: 174-184cm
- 58cm: 180-188cm
- 60cm: 186-194cm
- 62cm: 192-200cm

THE METAL WITH METTLE!
Titanium offers a great balance of properties that make it the perfect material for bicycle frames. It’s lightweight, durable and can withstand a lifetime of use whilst remaining corrosion free.
Large tube diameters allow titanium to be stiff where needed, yet the metal is naturally very good at delivering a smoother ride, especially over rough sections of road, so it’s perfect for long days in the saddle.
We use 3Al-2.5V titanium to build our frames, following the aerospace industry lead of adding 3% aluminium and 2.5% vanadium to the titanium to create the optimum performing material.
Aside from the material and ride benefits we just love the way titanium looks. J.Laverack frames aim to forge form and function to bring an unrivalled quality of ride and style to those that want more from their frame.
