Métier Vélo

carbon tubes | titanium lugs


Métier Vélo LLC is a one-person bicycle design and fabrication shop in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Métier Vélo bicycles are built with 3D-printed, 6/4 titanium lugs and carbon-fiber tubes. The lugs and tubes are bonded together with epoxy into light, tough, performance frames. Métier Vélo frames have a distinctive look reminiscent of classic lugged steel, and can be repaired by de-bonding and replacing damaged tubes.

In addition to frames, Métier Vélo produces 3D-printed custom dropouts and components in 6/4 titanium, and custom accessories in plastic.


Métier Vélo LLC is Jamie White [owner | builder | rider]


 

Winter Training Bike – Métier Vélo:

The Métier Vélo Winter Training Bike is a disc-brake road bicycle with clearance for 33mm tubular tires.  The relatively short 420mm chainstay, 73˚ seat and head tube angles, and stiff tubes provide a responsive ride.  Seventy millimeters of bottom bracket drop and 48mm of fork rake give a stability on long, rough descents.  Cosmetics are printed directly into the lugs or bonded to the frame. The Black-Ti finish of marine vanish and wax is easily refreshed.
