Because nothing is better than riding what was designed and built specifically for you.
Handbuilt steel bicycles are the most wonderful form of functional artwork, which are not only beautiful but fast, light, and durable machines with incredible ride quality. You’ll find an enormous amount of passion from the craftsman in this small industry who build with their unique perspectives and style. My hope is that you will find a bicycle you truly feel connected with that inspires you to spend more time in the saddle.
The work you will find here is designed and fabricated one at a time with a style that is clean without losing its sense of fun. Whether its torqueing megawatts up a mountain or cruising down the street to the coffee shop the goal of each project is to enhance that experience for the rider. The materials and components which make up each build come from companies who value quality, performance, and panache ahead of volume.
I’m Max Lundbeck and I build bicycles in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m a classically trained engineer with a background in Manufacturing, but more importantly I’m a Cyclist. Have a look at my work, perhaps it calls out to you.
