See the technology that goes into a custom carbon fiber Appleman!

Every Appleman frame is highly designed and engineered.   Frame designs are built on years of experience and refinement... not marketing hype. The latest Taper-Oval tube technology is lighter, stronger, and deliciously ...

I have now clocked a few miles on my new Appleman. My first impressions was correct, you have built me the best fitting bike I have ever had a chance to ride in my 45 years of cycling and its exactly what I wanted. It has a very good power transfer, stiff where necessary, yet compliant and very stable at any speed on any road. I was surprised upon unpacking the bike, it looked a lot better than I expected; from the pictures of other Appleman bikes I had seen on the web, I was expecting a rough and industrial look and feel, what I have got is a bike that is very neatly finished, looks fantastic and professional.

From the first contact to the final product, Matt was a pleasure to work with! Cannot say enough good things about this cooperation. I found Matt by coincidence just looking on the internet for custom frame builders. I almost decided to go with someone else, but a couple of emails and phone calls made me decide otherwise. Matt really lets you design the bike aesthetically and based on your measurements, the frame is built. What I like about the design is the fact that you can really see that this product is handbuilt, which to me is a good thing! I have not had a chance yet to take the bike out for a really good and long ride, but I'm sure it rides equally awesome as the way it looks. But I will definitely update later on with the exact details on the ride characteristics. The fact that Matt offers a 25 year warranty on the frame, really means he stands behind his work. Hopefully I will get a chance in the future to work with Matt again on another frame.

Matt built for me exactly the road bike I wanted -- he studied my riding style by, among other things, riding some miles with me on my older bike before he designed the new frame -- and, as I asked, he designed the frame to maximize comfort for long distance riding rather than just speed. And, Matt tolerated cheerfully my request that he plunk a Brooks saddle -- I just like Brooks saddles -- onto his lightweight frame. Good science, good art, good guy...

Matt was great to work with. He explained the process that he performed on my frame and executed it with great precision. I would highly recommend Matt's service to anyone in need of carbon frame repair.

Great experience from the first phone call to receiving the frame back. :) Spoke to Matt on the phone and he gave me a quote that turned out to be spot on. Also found another crack I had missed, sent me pictures so i could OK the additional work. Frame was done in exactly the time quoted and the work looks great. Best of all, no weight added on the scale. First class work and customer service. Would do it again.

I discovered Appleman Bicycles through a review of NAHBS in 2013. After doing some research I gave Matt a call to discuss what I was looking for in a gravel grinder. I wanted a bike designed for gravel events like the Dirty Kanza and Trans Iowa that was responsive and stiff yet offered comfort for all day riding. After a few discussions I was convinced an Appleman would be my next ride. The experience was top notch from top to bottom. Matt has the ability to listen to what you want and provide suggestions of his own based on his experience. The interview process combined with the fit sheet guarantee the customer gets a final product that exceeds their expectations. In addition, Matt's attention to small details separates himself from other manufacturers. I could not be happier with my Appleman gravel grinder.

When I fractured the top tube of my road bike, I was overwhelmed with what to do. People gave me all kind of suggestions, but after contacting Matt, I knew he was the man for the job! Not only was he super quick to respond to any questions I had, but he provided upfront advice! I had no idea how long a carbon repair would take, some people said 2 weeks, some said 4 if I shipped it out.... But Matt did it in less than a week!!! My frame is matte finished so he payed extra attention to detail as he laid the carbon to match my current frame. It looks AWESOME!!

Matt created a great bike for my husband. He worked with me beforehand to make a special little treat that I could give him on his birthday. And then he worked one on one with my husband to get the right fit for how my husband rides. He even went on a ride with him so he could evaluate exactly how the bike should be. Matt is easy to work with and fun!
