What’s happening in the steel building? Take a virtual tour of the new shop- no need for safety glasses here.

This will give you a start. We will be updating this page from time to time to give you more insight to the process behind our bikes. Search the blog category “shop work” for up-to-date projects.

  4. Hello
    I have found you guys when I seen an John Henry burgundy color
    frame on line. I was Going WOW…WOW …WOW..
    I looked it up and found your website, I Currently ride a Marin alpine trail 19″ 2009 model.. But Siren would be my choice in another hard tail design.
    I like everything you guys do in building and design so much i’m willing to go steel and get off the Aluminum..
    You are on my wish list for a John Henry.. I would build me a 29er with this frame..
    Until then I’m Dreaming ….
    Send me a Siren sticker man!!
    Kind regards and Pedal like mad!!!
