Road / Group Rides - Racing - Centuries

Road bikes are customized to match your body proportions, weight, and riding style. An excellent ride quality, strength, and durability are priorities when designing each frame. Bikes are built to be ridden and built to last. The “feel” of the ride is customized for each bike using custom tubing. Road bikes can be tailored for a stiff sprinters platform, a lightweight frame for a mountain goat, or a comfortable go-fast frame for group rides and centuries.

 

“The ride quality is brilliant. None of the frames I’ve ever used can match the Appleman… It’s like you were reading my mind when you were building this frame.

To conclude, it is the most amazing frame I have ever ridden. I’ve changed my attitude towards custom frames. I would never believe how the simple looking bike with all round tubes without any deceiving designs can ride this great. Thank you very much for building me such a great frame.”

Rick’s Road Bike

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...

The “DNA Bike”

The DNA bike is a masterpiece of excruciating detail.  Carbon overlay wraps the tubes in a double helix at the same angles and proportion as human DNA!  This was the first bike utilizing Appleman’s Carbon Everything Design.
