off the beaten path


Appleman Bicycles builds mountain bikes too! Frames can be built around 26″, 650B, or 29″ wheels depending on the size of the rider.  Custom chain stays and seat stays are fabricated to provide clearance  and a great ride for a truly custom mountain bike.  Fat bikes are also available.  

All frames include custom mountain tubing, internal cable routing and carbon dropouts with integrated disc tab.  Frames can be catered to your riding style.  Whether you’re looking for a light/durable 26″ bike for the race course or a 29+ bike ready for fun, Appleman has you covered.
