Strong Frames Inc.

2016 marks our 24th year in business. We’d like to thank all our customers for supporting us over the years. Loretta and I feel very fortunate to be able to make a living doing what we love and surrounding ourselves with people that share our passion for cycling.
We have built our reputation on our customer centered design process, 5 star customer service and uncompromising craftsmanship.  Over the last 24 years we’ve built somewhere in the neighborhood of 4000 frames.  Refining both our skill at the bench as well as developing an understanding of how to design each bike/frame to meet the customer’s needs and expectations.

Strong Frames Custom Blend Steel Road:

Another classic steel road frame. This frame is a blend of True Temper S3 and Columbus XCr stainless. The stainless rear was left unpainted.

Strong Frames – Titanium Road:

Built to train and race. This bike focuses on pure performance for competition but is robust enough to be a trainer and racer. At 15 pounds it’s no pig but RL can beat up on this thing all day long without a worry.

Strong Frames – Custom All-Road:

This all-road was built to do just about anything Brian can throw at it. It has tire clearance for up to a 40mm tire, fender mounts and rack mounts. He spends most of his time road riding but can easily escape to the the logging roads and trails when the inspiration hits. Adding fenders makes it great for early and late season riding with the weather starts to get a little sloppy.

Strong Frames – Classic Steel Road:

This is what I think a great steel bike is all about. Clean classic lines, the best modern steel available and classic all day fit and handling.

Strong Frames – Titanium Adventure/All-Road:

This is a larger bike with clearance for up to a 44 tire. The trick with the larger frames is to make them look balanced. This one came out looking great.


Strong Frames Inc – Custom Blend Titanium:

Custom Blend titanium road frame with Shimano Ult Di2 and Hydro brakes, Enve/King wheels and Enve Cockpit.
