Seneca Cycle Works LLC
Hand Crafted Bicycles
Seneca Cycle Works is a custom bicycle shop. I design and build bicycles that are made to order using the best available steel bicycle tubing, frame fittings and componentry.
Each bicycle that I make is tailor-made for its rider. Just like a pair of custom shoes or a bespoke suit, each bike is designed to fit the rider perfectly. With over 10 years' experience designing and building custom bicycles, I strive to build each bike to serve the rider in every way possible.
I like to build all types of bicycles: mountain bikes, road racing machines, reliable transportation and touring bikes, cyclocross racers, tight and clean track bikes, fat-tired snow bikes, trusty and fast randonneuring machines, a bike to carry your surfboard to the beach, and the list goes on. If it's got two wheels and pedals, I like it.
I exclusively work with steel. A well-designed and constructed steel bicycle frame will not only provide a sublime ride quality, but will last for decades with proper care. My preferred method of tube joinery is TIG welding. For those who prefer a more traditional aesthetic, I also offer a silver-brazed, lugged joinery option. All frames are made by hand and all bicycles are assembled by me, here in my Putney workshop.
