Testimonials

 

 

"Thank you for creating the perfect cyclocross bike for my taste and size. You listened to what I had in mind, searched for the very best components and gave me options. It has been a great experience."

Janice, Rockville, MD 

 

"Hey dude! I can't believe it. I brought you some crazy ideas and a tight budget, and you built it! A carbon/aluminum 29er rigid in my favorite color! And it's rock solid out on the trails."

Tony, Alexandria, VA

 

"Man, this bike rocks! The suspension is so smooth and the bike so light, I feel like I can jump over anything. Comparing it to my old bike is just wrong!"

Allen, Silver Spring, MD

 

"When family members said they were going to junk my mother's vintage 1950 Raleigh, I couldn't bear the thought of discarding a bike I rode as a kid. Vic accepted the tough job of restoring this 65-year-old bike. At every step, he kept me apprised of the overall estimate and his progress. The result is amazing! The bicycle looks fantastic. Even better, it rides like a dream. It's like the return of a long-lost friend."

Jodie, Gaithersburg, MD
