“And that’s what a bike is to me – Freedom”
“As the son of a Jeweler and a Stone Mason, working with my hands was in my blood. I started playing around with metals when I was around five or so, but I spent the larger part of my childhood traveling around with my father looking at stone work and brick work, squinting buildings, leaning how to discern how many masons were on a job by inspecting the joints, learning about masonry heaters, and discussing how best to do any number of things. I was taught that you either do it right, or don’t do it at all. Form follows function, but one must understand where embellishment or adornment fits.
I learned what it means to be a craftsman”.
The previous paragraph by owner Hinmaton Hisler embodies the spirit of Stijl Cycles. Whether it’s a bike that has never been conceived before or a one off steed that can accommodate the multiple needs of one’s lifestyle these bikes are sure to impress.
This Stijl Cycle is designed for the client that specifically wants a Stainless road bike. It’s equipped with “Ritchey Breakaway” style couplers, so the rider can use it as their main bike for home or bring it along for while traveling. As this had never been built, and there are no 17-4ph stainless Ritchey Breakaway couplers, Stijl Cycles was able to get the licensure to make them and also partnered with Stijl Cycles sister company Loco Machine to reverse engineer the system and make the needed components. This bike was built with Columbus XCr tubing, and the major components were made by LocoMachine of Richmond, VA.
