Mosaic Cycles out of Boulder, Colorado had a nice booth at the 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. They had several beautifully built creations on display. The ones that caught our eye the most were their titanium mountain bikes.

It was no surprise that they had some of the best looking titanium bikes on the floor, as the owner of Mosaic Aaron Barcheck worked at Dean Titanium Bicycles for several years before starting his own company.

Each Mosaic Cycles bike is fully custom. Each frame is made to fit what the customer wants. The bikes are typically built for racers or riders with specific geometry needs.

Mosaic builds both titanium and steel frames for mountain biking, road, track, and cyclocross. They do build more titanium than steel frames.

Mosaic tries to keep up with the latest developments in biking technology and features. They regularly build frames with internal braking systems, 142mm rear spacing, and integrated seatmasts. They also build frames to fit all of the current bottom bracket standards.
