One of my customer was kind enough to email me with his 30 day report of his new A-train. I am thrilled to get this sort of feedback.

Alex,

I've had my A-train for 30 days now. After 30 days and 475 miles ridden, all I have to say is I love that bike. Thanks so much for building me such a wonderful bike.

Feeling refreshed and ready to get back to the A-train Cycles workshop.

The A-train Cycle staff (myself) will be out of the shop on a backpacking this week.

New batch of headbadges for the next fifty frames. Each one will be scoured, polished, or painted to best match whatever frame it goes on.

A little paint teaser.  The pink logos are going to look great with pink Chris King hubs, headset, and bottom bracket.

Alex crafts amazing things, while still maintaining a level of professionalism and open-mindedness that makes his work accessible to everyone. He'll get you set up properly--whether it's a simple repair or custom frame and fork--and stand behind his work. Can't ask for more from a framebuilder!

Straightforward, helpful, quick, and a great approach. Even my small repair got great attention. Alex isn't totally a tool-geek, but he knows his stuff well. Real well. That means he can tell you if it makes sense to repair things. and nice stainless steel frames to dream about...
