Strong Frames has been many things in the past 14 years. I started building in the back of my grandmother’s garage in 1993. As demand for my frames grew so did my shop and the small staff. Eventually I was building 1,000 frames per year, with my name and for other brands. I ran a small bike shop and managed both businesses. It was very satisfying but without realizing it, I had morphed from a framebuilder into a business manager. I was doing less of building frames—my passion.
In 2004, in a dramatic move, I closed my retail shop, stopped doing contract work and focused my attention on custom Strong Frames. I now build only custom Strong Frames by myself with business help from my wife, Loretta.
I am once again a framebuilder/craftsman and I couldn’t be happier. I offer knowledge, experience and craftsmanship gained only through building thousands of high-end frames, along with the personal service of a small builder. I now take time to develop a relationship with every customer.
