As you may already know, our crowdfunding campaign was unable to achieve our goals. I wanted to take this moment to thank you for your support, provide a quick overview of how we’ll be moving forward, and encourage you to keep in touch as we pursue other paths towards achieving Circa’s full vision.
Circa is more than just one bike. It’s an entirely new way of making and delivering bikes to people. As we’ve said before, our goal is to create locally made bikes, just for you, in less than ten days and starting at less than $2,000. To make this possible, we needed to seriously rethink how bikes are made. Ultimately, we created a new manufacturing platform that we call MABEL™.

Modern Urban Adventure
The Trillium City package starts with our Portland-made Trillium frame and is designed to be the perfect all-conditions commuter. It features flat bars for a more upright position, wider tires to handle the abuses of city streets, and an 8-speed internal shifting system for super-easy maintenance. We’re currently accepting pre-orders for our next production run.
Oh, the fun we have, riding on a fine day and exploring pieces of the infamous Portland Ronde.
