Ted Wojcik Custom Bicycles http://2010.handmadebicycleshow.com/2010/02/ted-wojcik-custom-bicycles/ http://2010.handmadebicycleshow.com/2010/02/ted-wojcik-custom-bicycles/#comments Tue, 23 Feb 2010 23:18:10 +0000 Ted Wojcik Custom Bicycles http://www.handmadebicycleshow.com/?p=2811 The legend returns. One of the acknowledged master of the trade, Ted Wojcik (www.tedwojcikcustombicycles.com) has been handbuilding custom bicycles –made to be ridden — for thirty years. From his Windham, NH. shop, Wojcik designs and welds individually tailored light- weight steel bicycles of unmatched performance, quality and artistry. Wojcik’s one man operation completes approximately one hundred bikes a year for champion cyclists and triathletes, celebrities, commuters, weekend off road riders, and anyone seeking the best bicycles in the world.
Ted built his first bike 30 years ago to win over his future wife, who at 5′2 was having trouble finding one that fit. The Vietnam-era Navy veteran took that one act of romance and built it into a thriving business. Never satisfied with the status quo, he has long been an innovator in bicycle design –and has had his riffs ripped off more than Chuck Berry.
As the Museum of Mountain Bike Art and Technology noted about Ted Wojcik, “Seldom is the line between art and science, form and function, yet in Ted’s work, they are so completely merged. Near invisible welds fuse select butted steel tubing, and the only limitation on your paint job is your own imagination.”

sylvan cycles, llc http://2010.handmadebicycleshow.com/2010/02/sylvan-cycles-llc/ http://2010.handmadebicycleshow.com/2010/02/sylvan-cycles-llc/#comments Fri, 19 Feb 2010 23:12:17 +0000 sylvan cycles, llc http://www.handmadebicycleshow.com/?p=2784 “drop-dead gorgeous, a blast to ride, and green by design”

Sylvan Cycles makes innovative, beautiful, high-performance bicycles from sustainable wood composite materials. Our proprietary wood composite technology enables us to engineer frames that bring together a rare combination of performance, ride quality, and sustainability. Or as a customer puts it: “drop-dead gorgeous, a blast to ride, and green by design” We skillfully combine local, sustainably harvested materials, bio-sourced resin adhesives and stainless steel with a level of craft and artistry that reflects our backgrounds as framebuilders, luthiers, and cabinetmakers. Sylvan offers a complete line of bicycles and framesets, from road through mountain, to your daily commuter ride. Sylvan Cycles, llc is based in Amherst, Massachusetts. Sylvan was founded by John Fabel and Sam Kelley, and has a wonderfully expanding tribe of partners, including master fabricators George Combs and Mike Gerulitas.

Sylvan was formed from a love of bicycles combined with expertise in green materials, grounded in a long history of bicycle design and innovation. For example, John had the chance to work with bicycle design iconoclast Mike Burrow in the early 1980’s, and past bicycle related projects include helping to develop the Xtracycle, panniers for Madden, a patented electric drive system, and so on. Master welder George Combs began welding frames for Mongoose in the 1970’s, and has since made hundreds of frames. Master craftsman Sam Kelley is noted for his work with green materials and structural timberframe design. Sustainable design and socially-responsible business practice have also been long been driving themes in our work, and includes pioneering examples of sustainable product design and business practice.

“Using Bicycles to Go Places…”

Sylvan also comes out of our love and concern for the places we ride, and what kind of world we’re all bringing forward. In the big picture, we see both bicycles and businesses as potentially powerful tools for change. Sustainable design and socially-responsible business practice have repeatedly been driving themes in our work, and Sylvan is a continuing arc in this trajectory. If we are going to head in a more sustainable direction, how do we actually do it? As such Sylvan is not just about beautiful bicycles, but also about finding ways forward, and creating touchable, workable and delightful examples of the possible.

By fully understanding the rider’s style, Aaron crafts a balance of strength and comfort that can only come from custom design. Evoking the ingenuity and craftsmanship that made the Great 611 legendary, Six-Eleven Bicycle Co. guarantees each owner the ride of a lifetime.

Sampson has been advancing cycling technology since 1987. Sampson also makes some great semi-custom bikes, but their focus will be with their hot new pedals and components at Richmond. The newest version of the Stratics pedals show why Sampson’s pedals have been used to win everything from World Championships to Ididabike, and no wonder. Their newest sports a giant 62 mm wide platform for power and comfort-and it weighs just 121 g. each–in steel–the Ti pedals are just 99 g! The full Stratics SL group is now among the lightest at just 1932 g. with Sampson’s hot new SL cranks! Sampson looks forward to letting you see and feel the difference their top equipment can give you.

Where hidden from prying eyes handmade bicycles spring from the Earth as if by magic. Cool! Maybe it is an art learned in the far off land of Oregon at UBI, maybe it’s because Dave has read The Lord of the Rings so many times he can speak Elvish. All anyone knows for sure is that the shop is the size of a Ford station wagon and has been used many times to explain why the yard hasn’t been mowed.

Peter Mooney Cycles / Wheelworks http://2010.handmadebicycleshow.com/2010/01/peter-mooney-cycles-wheelworks/ http://2010.handmadebicycleshow.com/2010/01/peter-mooney-cycles-wheelworks/#comments Thu, 28 Jan 2010 19:33:42 +0000 Peter Mooney Cycles / Wheelworks http://www.handmadebicycleshow.com/?p=2552 Peter Mooney’s respect for the beauty and function of the bicycle frame goes back to the late 1960’s. He traveled to England in the early 1970’s and landed a job with a master of the trade. This “one man show” operated a small but complete bicycle/frame shop in south London.

This old world model of the “in house” frame builder as a component of a quality bike shop inspired Peter, (and like minded partners), to open the first Wheelworks store in 1977. Peter has enjoyed the position of building lugged steel frames under his own name ever since. 35 years on Peter still loves to ride his bike. Keeping up his mileage with commuting, (year round), an occasional cycle tour or time trial.

There are so many reasons to love bicycles. These range from their simple practicallity to object of art.
I’m proud that bikes have been, and continue to be such a huge part of my life.”

Look forward to seeing you in Richmond………………….Sincerely, Peter Mooney
