AHEARNE CYCLES

Bicycles, to me, represent all that is good and fun and creative in humans. Bikes are healthy and meditative and useful, and they bring out the best of people’s personalities. They help build community and promote environmental awareness, and they can help people explore the world around them in a way that is interactive and participatory. Bicycles make people smile.

BONAVIA CYCLES

[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
I began building bicycles frames in the fall of 2005 with frame builder Clive Bonavia in South West London. For 18 months I was taught traditional lugged construction.

Bonavia cycles has been building racing lightweights and bespoke bicycles since the late Nineteen Seventies. In 2007 after an 18 month apprenticeship with Clive Bonavia the opportunity to continue the Bonavia name was offered to me. I have built Bonavias ever since.

My focus has always been to continue the Bonavia name with the same attention to detail and quality of construction that was taught to me, along with developing an efficient and varied skillset that allows me to offer unique bikes that surpass my customer’s expectations.

IGLEHEART CUSTOMS
iglebike.com
[ CONSTRUCTOR ]

Christopher Igleheart has a long association with the bicycle. After running his own shop for many years in Portland, ME, he became an early and vigorous champion of mountain bicycles. At Fat City Cycles in Somerville, MA Igleheart honed his craft. From there he was on his own, making cross bikes, commuter bikes, tandems and of course the mountain bike. Many forks, frames, friends, races, trail miles logged and a continental crossing later, he settled down in Portland, OR with his machine shop, knowledge and expertise.
Alongside the Igleheart brand, Christopher has joined forces with Joseph Ahearne to form the AI Collective. They recently launched their first collaboration project fittingly called Page Street Cycles—a nod to the location of the shop where he and Joseph pull their collective strengths together to create beautiful and functional artwork.


JEFFREY BOCK CUSTOM CYCLES
fb.com/JeffreyBockCustomCycles
[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
My obsession with bicycles began when I received my first bicycle on my fourth birthday.

It didn’t really get out of control until I graduated from college in 1974. You can’t imagine my joy and surprise, when I discovered that my Art degree qualified me for employment in the local Raleigh shop.

Bicycles quickly took over. In less than a year I had acquired, a couple of 3-speeds, a Raleigh Professional, and a 1964 Schwinn Paramount. Of course I wasn’t satisfied. I had my heart set on a no-compromise touring bike. American builders at that time seemed to specialize in racing bikes. England and France had builders who offered touring bikes, but for reasons I can’t begin to explain, a trip to Europe didn’t seem nearly as practical as learning to build bicycle frames myself. So, in the fall of 1975, with the help of a guy named Mike Bornstein, I built my first bicycle frame – a lovely no-compromise touring bike.

Forty or so years later, I’m still at work, hand building lugged steel bicycle frames. Most of my recent frames have been touring, randonneuring, and commuter bikes.

All the retail shops I worked for over the years were Raleigh dealers. As a consequence, I acquired a great affection (friends claim it’s an affliction) for Sturmey Archer hubs and English 3-speed bicycles.

In addition to riding for the sheer joy of it, I enjoy cycle touring and commuting. I’ve ridden RAGBRAI numerous times, but have mostly gotten over it. Recently, in lieu of RAGBRAI, my wife and I have done some amazing (independent/self-supported) cycle.


LYONSPORT BICYCLES
lyonsport.com
[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
In 1974, 18 year old Jeff Lyon packed his worldly possessions in a single duffle bag and bought a one-way ticket to London in hot pursuit of what was at the time, secret knowledge-how to build bike frames. After working at Witcomb Cycles, Ken Bird Cycles, Tonnard Brazing Co. and Alec Bird Cycles Jeff found a home with his most influential mentor Bill Philbrook. He and Bill worked together six years before Jeff returned to the U.S.

42 years later, he’s still reflecting on how much there is to know about quality framebuilding and good design. Although tastes may change over the years the essence of a good bike remains a constant, much like a lifelong friend. Given that thought Jeff has concentrated on his L’avecaise line of frames. These frames are available in both stock and custom sizes, starting at $1500.

Please inquire via telephone.


MAHALL CYLCES
mahallbikeworks.com
[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
Mahall bikeworks offers lugged and fillet-brazed steel framesets emphasizing the ideal that bicycles are an expression of individuality, an art form, as well as utilitarian tools. In my life bicycles provide a distraction from the stresses of life to allow the mind and body to be refreshed. My design and construction process draws in the client, providing a unique experience, resulting in a partnership and an agreement that the bicycle has been optimized for the fit and handling characteristics required for the intended application.

RADIAN CYCLES
radiancycles.com
[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
I’m Jason Henkle and I make custom lugged steel bicycle frames under the Radian Cycles name. I built my first frame in 2008 and have been building, improving and refining my skills as much as possible since. I’ve built for myself, friends, and family but mostly for practice. The long term goal of building professionally was always in the back of my mind influencing my process; build a frame, take lots of notes, ride it, destructively test the joints, cut it up, and make the next one better. I strive to make clean, sound, well thought-out bicycles that blend the best elements of modern and classic design. While still near the beginning of the framebuilding curve I am proud of my work and hope you enjoy it.

REN CYCLES

[ INDUSTRY ]

SIM WORKS
sim.works
[ INDUSTRY ]
SimWorks has developed the service which we distribute products in order to fit all the bicycle rider’s life style, create their needs to the shape, and support all the craftsmen who produce an excellent items in the world.

Since we handle a “hand-made” & “custom-order-made” products, which we sometimes propose some ideas that no one has never seen before, we think that it is important to communicate between end users, dealers, and producers.

Through “craftsmanship” and “public place” as a shop, and also through “riding a bicycle”, we are always looking for a fellowship who would join our idea and expand it to the world. Please go to the contact page or call directly to our staff.


SMELTZER BIKES
smeltzerbikes.com
[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
Bicycles have always been a part of my life starting with riding on the top tube of my grandpa’s Schwinn. Since then, I have either been racing, mountain biking, commuting or simply taking tandem trips to the coast. Although I enjoy all types of cycling, cyclocross and gravel road riding continue to be my personal favorites and my favorite frames to craft.

My passion for bicycles revolves around the way the frame fits the rider and how the frame design affects the ride and performance of a bike. From start to finish, my ultimate goal is to have the rider love the look, feel and fit of their custom Smeltzer frame.


STRAWBERRY BICYCLES

[ CONSTRUCTOR ]
In 1971 after graduating from the University of Washington School of Civil Engineering and spending time touring and racing my bicycle in England, I returned to Portland and endeavored to build bespoked bike frames with a talented partner, Mark DiNucci.  Fast forward 46 years, my wife and I live and work in a refurbished 1948 vintage garage in Goose Hollow, downtown Portland which is now home to Strawberry Bicycle and Torch & File (wholesale bike tools, Reynolds cycle tubing and supplies).  If you are in the area, please contact me so we may discuss matters over a pint at the Goose Hollow Inn (aka Strawberry Off Hours Office).  Cheers, Andy
