Custom Carbon Fiber Frames
Appleman Bicycles is a one-man shop that builds highly custom road, CX, and mountain bikes.
Frames are built by hand in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I use my Composite Materials Engineering
background to build bikes of incredible quality, strength, and durability.
What sets Appleman apart?
Custom Layups and Tubing
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. Full custom geometry is the norm. I have very few limitations on what geometry and stiffness’ can be built. 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.
