3 Jul July 3, 2013 by studio55 in News We are pleased to announce a partnership with Irish manufacturer TURAS Bikes. TURAS produce hand built world class bikes coupled with great customer service and pride themselves on one on one client satisfaction to their consumers. Anyone purchasing a TURAS bike will have the option of including a specially commissioned TURAS/Bike Pure headset spacer and stem cap via their network of Independent bicycle dealers. Andy Layhe, Co-Founder of Bike Pure said, “We’ve been impressed by TURAS for many months and they first came to our attention as sponsors of the Nicolas Roche Youth Development Squad. Any company who has youth development at their heart is doing great things for the sport. TURAS is Ireland’s only dedicated bike producer and they believe in our core values so it’s a like for like partnership and we very much look forward to working with them on some new and exciting projects this year and beyond.” CEO of Turas Bikes, Mark McKeigue said, “As a company TURAS is committed to ethical business and all of us here love the sport of cycling and want to do all we can to concrete it’s integrity. With that in mind we’ve decided to put a Bike Pure headset spacer and top cap on every bike to show our support to the Bike Pure message in the hope of raising awareness through education.” “We’re a company you can believe in and we’re delighted we can symbolize that by fitting a bike pure spacer on every bike we sell. We’d also encourage all of our customers to get behind bikepure.org.” TURAS chose to base production of their crafted products in the Far East, where 96% of carbon frame production takes place but will be moving manufacturing to Ireland by the end of 2013. The heart of TURAS’ product design and research and development is administered in Galway, Ireland, where the bikes are also assembled and they take great pride in this element of their business structure. TURAS ship worldwide and produce an impressive range of road and time trial machines. For a minimal extra cost you can have your own custom paint style giving customers that individual personal touch.
