Aussie Rob loved his Appleman Road and Appleman Mountain bikes so much he ordered a second mountain bike to allow for rigid and suspended front ends for 6, 12, and 24 hour racing. Shown at NAHBS 2014, this bike features a PROTOTYPE Enve rigid mountain fork that has adjustable rake, integrated fender, and integrated brake hose guide. This mountain bike is identical in geometry to his first and features ultra thin titanium logos on the down tube, head tube badge, top tube, back of seat tube and AppleStem. To fend off sharp quartz found in the old gold mining town Rob frequently rides in, ballistic kevlar was added for protection under the down tube as well as wrapped around both chain stays.
Rick wanted a super comfortable rocket. Rick allowed me total freedom with the design as long as it was simple. Since Rick is a vintage car aficionado, I used stainless steel for the logos and integrated my apple logo into an Alfa-Romeo grill for the head badge.
Joe wanted a bike that would get him through tough gravel races like the Dirty Kanza 200 and Trans Iowa: something light, durable, and simple. Custom geometry for all day comfort on gravel and to be at home in a muddy CX race, this bike is versatile without compromise! This is a beautiful bike with wooden logos and a lot of custom features.

Originally from Belgium, Koen is living in the USA and wanted a bike that was truly American made! A stealthy Appleman offered the level of customization he required. Built with Appleman custom tubing, this frame was fine tuned for a stiffer front end while maintaing a more forgiving rear end.
