Bastion x Demon Lug Collaboration

They were a year in the making, but here they are: the Demon Frameworks x Bastion Cycles 3d printed titanium lugs. We got the story on this collaboration from both sides of the globe…

Tom Warmerdam of Demon Frameworks

“When I first saw what Bastion Cycles was doing I knew they had a really fantastic product, I loved it. Then I started thinking, what would happen if I applied some of same design ideas from Demon to their already amazing 3d printed titanium lugs? This started as a chat at Bespoked 2016 and shortly after a customer presented himself. I already had a head full of ideas which I quickly started sketching. We had a fair bit of back and forth to figure out what was possible and to get the details just right, in fact it's taken a year to get to the point of having the lugs made.”

So David and Tom agreed to work on a design and we would integrate it into our lugs and engineer it so the frame would still have the same strength and durability as our standard frames. There is extra material and supports engineered into the inside of the lugs behind the features Tom designed so we don't compromise the durability.


It has taken over a year to get here, but it is worth it. The result is incredible. David has been kind enough to allow us to do a limited release of more so we are making them exclusively one per country. We want them to be a truly bespoke collector’s edition.


Each one takes much longer than our standard frames as the design features must be individually modelled and to suit each custom geometry.

I was and am a massive fan of Tom's work and Tom and I had been talking about how cool it would be to combine his artistic talents with our technology and so at Bespoked in 2016 we were discussing it and were at the point where we said “now all we need is a customer!”.

I had been talking to David (a new customer who wanted a Bastion build) by email and he was interested in doing something even more unique and special than our standard lugs. He came down to meet me at Bespoked and as he described what he was after it sounded exactly like what Tom and I had been discussing!

Fate!
