Everybody loves a bit of custom bling – here’s how to pimp your ride with cSixx.

Put yourself in the shoes of ‘Craig’ – your average (not-so-average) SA mountain biker. When Craig is not riding, he enjoys spending some time ‘mind-shredding’ trails on his social media feed, as well as drooling over the latest kit and gear offerings.

Csixx Custom Components

On this particular day, after a beaut of a two-hour early morning ride, Craig’s scrolling is halted by a vibrant display of custom bike components from cSixx. Intrigued, he clicks through to their website, embarking on a journey that’s about to add a unique flair to his cycling experience.

How the cSixx Custom Order Process Works

Upon landing on the cSixx website, Craig finds himself in a realm of customisation, where cyclist’s dream of personalising their bike becomes a reality. Here, he discovers the ‘Custom Build Kit’ section – a user-friendly space where choices unfold like a tailored adventure. With a few clicks, Craig selects components for his bike, each offering a choice of base and highlight colours. His selections include a stem, quick cap, headset spacer, dropper lever, seatpost clamp, on-frame storage, chainring, chain guide, derailleur cage, and pulley wheels. Each component, a promise of quality and uniqueness, is made locally in Cape Town, reflecting the company’s commitment to local craftsmanship.

As Craig completes his selection, he sends an inquiry through the website. This triggers a warm, personalized response from the cSixx team, ensuring that every detail of Craig’s custom kit is perfect for his bike. The conversation isn’t just about confirming sizes and colours; it’s about understanding Craig’s needs, his style of riding, and his aspirations as a cyclist. This human-centric approach sets cSixx apart in an age where digital interactions often lack a personal touch.


The manufacturing process at cSixx is a blend of art and precision. Each component is CNC’ed and painted in-house by a team of skilled artisans. Craig receives updates throughout the week-long creation process, building anticipation and a sense of connection to the craftsmen shaping his custom kit. These updates aren’t just informative; they’re a narrative of the journey his bike components are undergoing – from raw materials to bespoke creations.

Finally, the day arrives when Craig’s custom-build kit is ready. Shipped directly to him, where he has the option to take it to his local bike shop for fitting. 

As Craig’s bike transforms with the new components, he feels a deeper connection to his ride – each part is a reflection of his personality and a testament to the craftsmanship of cSixx. 


For those inspired by Craig’s story, the array of customisable components awaits their creative touch.
