Custom Carbon Fiber Bikes

Appleman Bicycles is a one-man shop that builds custom carbon fiber bikes.  Raw, clean, and minimalistic design is paired with advanced composites engineering for the ultimate ride.


I engineer a custom tube set for each rider based on their height, weight, and riding style. By modifying tubing diameter and layup schedule, stiffness is tailored to provide an excellent ride.

One Man Shop

The guy who answers the phone is the same guy who builds your frame. It is extremely important to me to deliver excellent service and communication. The end result is an amazing bike with no surprises during the ordering process.


Everything about my frames is strength and durability related; even the finish. Frames come standard with a beautiful raw carbon finish. Logos are made of carbon, titanium, and wood logos for a unique, durable look.
