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. Whether you’re 5’2 and 120 pounds or a 6’4 gorilla, I can build a bike from the ground up around you.

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. With regard to logos, I’ve merged my creative side with my materials engineering side. I build bikes with carbon, titanium, and wood logos for a unique, durable look.
