Stinner Frameworks
NAHBS Booth: #512

At Stinner Frameworks we are dedicated to delivering high quality, hand crafted bicycle frames. With an eye for form and function, Aaron Stinner has been the driving force behind Stinner Frameworks since 2010.

In only a few short years, Aaron Stinner has honed his skills and is already making frames for people around the world. Aaron believes that the finest frames are made of good quality material and with the riders needs in mind. He specializes in road, mountain, cyclocross and city bikes. In 2012 Aaron was awarded Rookie of the Year at NAHBS for his 29er Mountain Frame.

Aaron’s material of choice is steel and uses TIG welding and Fillet Brazing as his two preferred joining techniques. Using the two methods he is able to create a bicycle to meet any riders needs. Wether it be racing or riding down to your local coffee shop, Aaron can build a bicycle that handles perfectly and looks amazing too.

Exhibitor News:
How our bikes are made:

Hi Everyone,

We are getting really excited as NAHBS draws closer. A few weeks ago fellow cyclist and pro photographer Matt Miller of Hazardous Taste followed Aaron around the shop while he built a NAHBS frame for Ty of Golden Saddle Cyclery. He filmed a two minute video of how Aaron assembles and builds his frames. The video can be seen HERE and on Matt’s Vimeo link on the Exhibitors Page. Thanks for watching and we will see you in a week!


Shop Tour:

Matt Miller of Hazardous Taste recently stopped by the shop to shoot some photos and a few videos for us. One of the NAHBS teaser videos can be seen HERE. Over the last year my shop has taken on many forms as I pursued an efficient shop space. As any successful framebuilder will tell you, time is your most important asset. Having a clean, organized and efficient shop space is a must in order to keep turn around times low. It also allows me to spend more time interacting with customers and ensuring they get the bike that they are dreaming of. Here are a few photos, I hope you enjoy them.

Follow along on Instagram:

Fillet Brazed 29er w/ Rohloff Belt Drive:

Bent seat tube.

Belt Drive.


Tapered Lefty.


White on White Finish.

OX Plat/Life Tubing.

2012 Dura Ace Mechanical.

Enve and Chris King Bits.


This frame is a fillet brazed road frame with oversized tubing. The rider was coming off of a carbon frame and he really enjoyed the stiffness of the frame, but not the ride quality. After some talking and riding together we decided that he wanted a frame that looked good and would ride very well. We wanted the weight to be competitive but  not make it a priority. I really enjoyed how this bike turned out and how stiff it is. Pair it with the NEW SRAM red groupset, King Headset, Bottom Bracket and Hubs and you have a great bike. It will be great for exploring Southern California.

Rigid Non-Suspension Corrected 29er. 142×12 Drops. 15QR Fork.:

This bike was built for Cameron D. in San Diego. Cameron wanted a lightweight MTB frame that he could rip around the race course with. This steel rigid 29er frame can be equipped with all of the new standard parts and accessories. 142×12 thru axle. 15qr front hub. The front dropouts are machined in house and can be included on any Stinner MTB. You can read more about this bike on my blog HERE. This bike was a pure joy to build and one I’m very happy with.


Traditional and simple with modern flair. A fillet road frame is a timeless piece. This frame is a custom fillet road frame with S-bent seat stays. It also has a “segemented” style road fork. Built with a great SRAM Force build kit and King R45/Velocity A23 wheelset. This bike will see many miles with the customer smiling the whole way. Check out my website for more details.


This frame was for Kyle K. up in Portland, OR. After moving to OR, Kyle wanted a bike that could handle the vigors of riding and racing in the Pacific Northwest. This bike has full internal cable routing to protect your shifting in horrible conditions. It also has custom bent seat stays and an external relieved headtube. Topping it all off, we went with a nice loud, race ready paint scheme.

This is a Custom TIG Road Frame. It’s a mix of True Temper OX Plat and Columbus Life tubing. Its decked out with an Sram Force groupset and should be a frame that will hold up for many miles. The fork is an Enve 2.0 road fork and the paint is done by the outstanding crew at Spectrum Powderworks. The customer should have a guest blog, reviewing his new bike, on my website very soon.

Custom Cyclocross Frame w/ Integrated Seatmast:

This is a full custom cyclocross frame. It was designed around all of the needs of the customer. A few of the frame features are the hand bent custom seatstays and a custom integrated seatmast with Enve seatpost guts. The frame is painted by the crew at Spectrum Powderworks. Please check out my website for more details.
