I started out riding in school in the late 1980's. From the moment I did my first group ride and then race, I was hooked on the world of two wheels. I have ridden many thousands of km's since then, over all sorts of terrain and with varying goals in mind. Road, track, mtb, BMX and CX have all featured in these adventures.
Over that time I have formed a pretty strong idea on how a bike should exist and how it should handle. I love the modern look with cues to the past and design my bikes to be functional first, but still have a classy modern aesthetic about them.
With intuitive design nous and a background in fabrication and engineering, I am fortunate to have ventured down the path of building my own frames. It is both intense and soothing at the same time and is deeply satisfying to have my clients rave about their own Devlin Custom bicycle.
My preference is to build in steel. It has that legendary lively feel that I believe rewards the rider for the effort. Giving a ride that is smooth but responsive and dances delightly when pushed hard.
