From our Customers:
“What an amazing machine you’ve made me John! This bike is absolutely incredible – fast, comfortable, stable, and so much feel.” -Ed
“….this thing is a dream. Snappy, comfortable and sexy. Totally love it, thank you!” -Alex
“Easily the best bike I’ve ever ridden! It’s light, fast, comfortable, and very beautiful…it makes me happy every time I’m on it.” – Rick
“Man this thing can descend! The way the frame and wheels soak up bad road is unbelievable. I found myself going faster AND feeling way more confident on the descents.” – Ryan
“I am delighted with my beautiful new bike! It’s more comfortable for my elbows and wrists—and yet it also climbs very well. The descents are fun, and feel lively yet secure. Thanks!”
We offer complete bikes or Framesets in Titanium or Steel with your choice of finish and parts package.
For your mixed route adventures. Comfortable for long rides and with the right mix of stability and agility for tackling both road and trail.
Available for single or double chainring drivetrains. Up to 700x45mm tires. Wireless Sram AXS or Mechanical Campagnolo.
One of the best parts of cycling is exploring the world around us. This bike is your trusted companion when you have the urge to turn off the paved road onto the dirt and see where it leads.
A modern classic of sorts, it blurs the line between Road Racer and Gravel bike. The Adventure Road has a wheelbase, chainstay length and head angle that sits in between the two. This geometry retains a light turn-in with a bit of added compusure when adventure calls you.
Fits 700 x 28-38mm tires.
Agile, fast, svelte and responsive.
Elegant simplicity in a modern component package of disc brakes and smarter tires makes for a speedy yet entirely approachable machine.
Room for up to 700x32mm tires.
* We can make you a rim bike if that is your preference. Tire clearance is 25mm and sometimes 28mm depending on rim and tire selection.
Taking years of experience designing, building and riding all types of bikes on varied terrain, John created the Scrambler. The Scrambler is a flat-bar-specific Gravel bike. The top tube is longer to match the flat bar and shorter stem. The head angle is reduced from a drop bar Gravel bike to have the right level of stability for this setup. It’s not as “slack” as a mountain bike, so it can retain a favorable weight distribution for solid handling on road descents and be nimble in the tight and twisty low angle terrain. If your routes are a mixed ramble of road and trail, but heavy on the dirt, the Scrambler may be for you. The flat bar is easy on the back and neck, great for hops and drops, and leaves plenty of room for a wide bar bag on your bikepack trips.
Fits up to 700 x 50mm tires. Dropper post routing and a third bottle are available options. Fork has extra cage mounts.
If you are looking for a sweet hardtail – we can make you one. Titanium or Steel. Geared or Single Speed, or adaptable for both.
Built as a custom. Contact us for pricing and information.
