About Cleaver Bikes

Cleaver Bikes is a one-man bicycle frame building operation, based in Berkeley.

Cleaver Bikes offers individually-designed and fabricated steel and titanium bicycles.

Everything is machined/welded/painted right here in the Bay Area, one at a time. Cleaver Bikes cargo bike tubing is generally sourced from Germany and the US. Any dropouts not made in the shop are typically machined locally in Richmond.

In addition to bicycle builds, the shop also offers frame repair and small-batch welding and machining contracting.

There are several new products on the way: t-shirts, a few dropouts, a refrigerator magnet, a couple of simple frame building tools, and an open source cargo bike with assembly instructions.
