Yep, there’s no denying it…I’m not quite like other builders. I’ve been told that is what attracts many of my customers to me…I enjoy celebrating uniqueness. I like it a bit Funky. In the custom bicycle business, success is dependant on building a relationship with the customer to help define their individual physical needs, performance desires, and to identify who they are not only as a cyclist, but as a person. The finished product is a culmination of physiology, metallurgy, and personality all rolled into one. Utterly unique, just like you. To help bring your vision to life, each step of the process in completed by only one set of hands. Design, machining, welding/brazing, component fabrication, custom paint and assembly, I complete each step of the process to insure your vision is maintained. To do so means that it takes a bit longer, but you’re worth it. Each creation is destined for an audience of one. Success is measured in smiles. It makes me feel good when you’re happy. Shouldn’t that be what life is about? I’m looking forward to seeing y’all in Denver…make sure you stop by, chat for a bit, and see who my bikes are all about. cheers, Rody
Keith fondly remembers cruising around as a kid in the back of his family station wagon, wind in his face, the road revealing it’s self as they advanced down the black pavement toward a new horizon. He wanted to capture some of that spirit in the paint for his 29er, so we took inspiration from the genre to dress up his frame.
Key elements were to be the bright white top, a nice dark metallic blue for the body, and a wood grain panel on the downtube.
Built with Shimano XT, Thomson components, and a ceramic coated Luv handle, this was one of my favorite builds this year.
Built as a simple race steed, this geared 29er is straight up fast. Tight geometery and front center keep it agile in the tight single track, while functional full length cable housing runs, Direct Mount Front derailleur, and chainstay mounted disc brake keep it simple and efficient. Clad in a fun four color candy paint, it makes you smile even when you’re not racing for the finish.
The Frankenstein X frame…after a fall off a 500′ cliff, this bicycle was reborn into it’s current iteration. A full custom Ti frame with custom Rohloff dropouts and internal cable routing, belt drive compatibility, Groovy Luv handles, Hot Rods, and Disco Stick, custom painted Fox F29 and shod with Germany’s finest brakes and rubber. Throw in a campy Frankenstein paint for fun, and you have a successful revival of a classic design updated with today’s finest equipment. Come check this one out at Nahbs in Denver, complete with mud, dirt, and stories to tell.
