Vlad Cycles fabricates unique bicycle frames that are designed specifically for you, the rider. We are located in Boonton, New Jersey (Morris County) just thirty miles from New York City and in the heart of the best mountain and road biking that North East of USA can offer. We make frames to order and work directly with you throughout the frame fabrication process to bring your vision of the next ride into reality.
Excited to participate in the NAHBS 2017. See you there!
Steel hardtail built in 2016 for a rider from the Northern New Jersey.
Built this steel 26er earlier this year for my 12 year-old son. Inspired by the fictional character, Igor the assistant of Dr. Frankenstein, in the Young Frankenstein film.
I built this bike early this year for my 10-year-old daughter. It was time to upgrade her ride so we can ride together on our local mtb/gravel trails. Together with my son (he got 26er frame, which I post here soon) she participated in the design of her bike, including color selection on the bike and the frame bag. Thanks to Andrew from ATM Handmade Goods for designing the frame bags for kids bikes. This bike is set up with Shimano XT drivetrain, Velocity wheelset, hydraulic disk brakes and powdercoat finish.
This gravel/all-road bike was recently built for a female rider who had been looking for a road bike capable to run on all types of terrain, simple to operate as well as be forgiving when it comes to long rides and climbs. Bike was designed around TRP CX 12mm thru axle fork. To achieve greater gearing range and better chain stability with 1x drivetrain setup, we installed Shimano mountain 11 speed wide range cassette (11-40t) and Shimano mountain derailleur with Wolf Tooth Tanpan to allow integration with road shifters. Additional components/features include, 142×12 thru axle Paragon dropouts, TRP Spyre SLC mechanical disc brakes, Rolf VCX wheelset and 35mm Schwalbe G one tires.
Just a few bikes to look at
