A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
The frame of our 2018 Nordest Bardino is an enduro model, fun, quiet and fast. You can do the assembly or let you take the options of our kit. Manufactured in CRMO 4130 with geometry designed by Nordest has been tested by riders with excellent results in all conditions. With chainstays of only 425 mm compatible with wheels 27.5+ (up to 3") or 29 (up to 2.5") inches. Designed for a 160 mm front suspension travel and 27.5+ 3 inch wheels, the safety in descents and cornering is simply incredible. Some of the components could be not fitted on the final relase and can be changed by any other similar component or accesory. Plase contact us for final list.www.nordestcycles.com/

Year 2016, we began our journey creating the NORDEST Cycles brand and developing the first bicycle model. Our identity is inspired by the rugged region of Tras-os-Montes, in the northeast of Portugal. The emblem symbolizes a “Careto”, element characteristic of the traditional Trasmontano Carnival. The region of the Northeast is the land from which the family of Jerónimo, the promoter of the Project, that in this way pays homage to its origins.
This project continues the knowledge from Jeronimo Cycles, a custom titanium brand with more than 200 customized framed builded and sent to 17 different countries during the last 7 years.
Our products are designed in the Canary Islands, where the terrain and the mild climate allow the development and set-up of bicycles in any of its modalities throughout the year. We build the frames in an advanced factory located in Taiwan, using CrMo 4130 steel. Our technician handcrafts the assembly of bicycles in Spain, using aluminum and carbon components from leading brands such as Thomsom, Cane Creek, Shimano, FOX, or RockShox. In addition to the fully equipped bike, you can purchase the frame or frame kit plus suspension fork.
NORDEST Cycles exists thanks to the effort of a small multidisciplinary team guided by Jerónimo, designer of titanium frames that have been projected to measure for a decade under the name of Jerónimo Cycles.
In the coming months we will present our first model, a Hardtail Enduro for MTB. A type of bicycle increasingly demanded by those seeking simplicity and zero maintenance of a rigid frame, which combines the reliability of traditional materials with the dynamism of an advanced study of geometry where we have put our illusion, knowledge and know-how.
Our small team formed by Jerónimo, Mángel and Jesús, works hard to make NORDEST Cycles come true.
Resolutive and Tireless
Mechanical Engineer and designer of bicycle frames. In the last 7 years I have projected and built in titanium, under the name of Jerónimo Cycles, more than 200 different frames. At NORDEST Cycles I am responsible for product design, manufacturing, logistics and sales.
Fanatic of cycling, mountains and sports
In the world of cycling for more than 25 years, I dream of pedaling. If you do not see me running, you’ll see me on a bike. Hurry? Never! Just enjoying! Communication and marketing are my tasks at NORDEST Cycles.
Creative and dreamer
According to my mother, as a child I learned to ride a bike before walking. Not true, it was a small tricycle but since I was a little boy was pedaling. When I did not run around with my tricycle I spent long hours drawing.
In NORDEST Cycles I add these two passions to develop the artistic content required by the project.
5 years frame warranty (paint not included)
We designed the sizes for 40 mm short stems and height between 168 - 193 cm. (5'6" - 6'4")
Geometry is modern, with each frame designed around a short 40mm long stem and a very long front centre. Long top tube lengths are drawn on for each frame size, and the seat tube is kept quite steep to keep the Nordest Bardino in line with modern long-travel trail and enduro bikes.

We have developed and designed our products for over a year now, creating great relationships with reliable, high quality vendors that have been serving the global bike industry successfully for years. This proyect is the continuation of a project from Jeronimo's brand: over 7 years of full customized titanium frames, more than 200 projects and 17 different countries ridden by Jeronimo's bikes.
We work with a fabric with more than 30 years of experience welding bicycles. All the frames are now in pre-production phase and the bikes are being tested from 2 months ago (feb'17)
Our challenge is to continue the project even if the amount indicated in Kickstarter is not reached. We trust in our development and implementation capacity. The tests we have done on bicycles to this day are as solid as our project.
We do understand that unforeseen challenges come up when producing such game changing products. We are committed to delivering on our goal and keeping our backers up to date along the way. We love bikes. We love cycling.
Including Thomson carbon handlebar, stem, seat collar and dropper post, Fox 36 Kashima Factory and Cane Creek headset. From €2123.00 to €1973.00 We offer this in 3 sizes, Medium, Medium/Large and Large frame sizes (you'll choose your size after project is backed)
