About

I have about five years of experience as a framebuilder, going back to my initial education at UBI. I focus on creating handcrafted bicycles and accessories that are organically suited to a rider’s goals, temperament and aesthetic sensibilities. While this has transformed into a business and my full time job, it was born from passion and love for cycling.

This is a one-man operation. Learning the framebuilding craft was somewhat self-indulgent — an outlet for my creativity, which developed through several years of working in a bike shop and living the cycling lifestyle. As my skills have matured I have put them to good use helping others translate their own creative visions into beautiful and functional bicycles and accessories.

These days, much of my work has been with stainless steel. Recent advancement and evolution have produced a material that gives the builder the opportunity to blends optimum performance with traditional beauty. This willingness to adopt the best of new technology allows A-train Cycles to retain stunning workmanship, without forcing the rider to use obsolete technology.

Have a look around, check out the blog, the gallery, and drop me a line if you’d like to talk about any potential projects. I respond quickly to emails and phone calls, and love talking about bikes.
