About

 

I believe the bicycle is the most beautiful, efficient tool ever conceived for exploring places both internal and external.

I've used this as a vehicle for travel, fun, and discovery. While engaged in this pursuit I've had a lot of opportunity to think about what I like about certain bikes and activities. When I returned to my shop it was my privilege to be able to try to make the dreams tangible. 

These bikes are highly refined versions of the bikes I have enjoyed for years. I keep making subtle refinements in a continual attempt to make improvements. I am hugely indebted to all the builders and engineers who came before me and don't make decisions lightly. 

When you pin a number on for 1200K brevet or just an hour of muddy suffering I want you to have total confidence that you have the best tool for the job and that it was designed and built by someone who shares your passion for the task at hand.

Some of the riding I have done is documented here:
