Jason Quade:  Abbey Bike Tools

The mission at Abbey Bike Tools is simple, build the best quality bicycle tools on the market android apps without a google account. When Jeff Crombie called me in the winter of 2011 about making a custom lock ring tool the result was a little crude but highly effective. When it came time to put that tool into production it was worthy of being called “an heirloom tool” by one magazine writer and “my new favorite tool” by another. That level of quality and innovation is what Abbey is all about. Putting the Crombie into production was an eye opener for me. I’m constantly thinking about new tools, whittling down billets of steel and aluminum to make prototypes and talking shop to keep my finger on the pulse of what the rest of you are after.


Curtis Inglis:  Inglis Cycles

I started building bicycles in 1993. Retrotec bike’s are modern geometry cruisers that can be ridden for fun or racing, in the dirt or on the pavement bus simulator 18 herunterladen. I started making traditional straight tube frames in 1996 under Inglis Cycles. With both types of frames, I can offer customers just about anything they would want. Thank you for your interest in my bikes.
