Regular Cycles is a one-man shop dedicated to making bicycle parts and bicycle frames using carbon fiber and related materials. My name is Drew Diller, I work in a single garage stall, and I am not a classically trained engineer. I am instead a stubborn cyclist who dislikes the phrase, "There's not enough customer interest for us to justify prototyping that."
There are certain holes in the bicycle product landscape that I aim to fill, mostly oriented around toughening of the ever fragile rear derailleur on a typical bike. Mind you, much about bicycle technology has already been invented... but not everything.
However, it is common sense that if I am to develop a niche product (like a new type of gearbox mountain bike), then I should also offer products that are not a niche for a variety of reasons. I am currently using my carbon skills to make a bunch of custom handlebars and custom saddles. Custom suspension forks (yes, forks) and frames are also in process.
Pricing for custom bars and custom saddles usually lands around at $250 depending on what you need. Sometimes less, occasionally more if you need something wild. I do volume discounts! The first molding is the most expensive and gets easier from there.
Hope to hear from you. I am a low pressure salesman, and I am goal oriented before being profit oriented.
