sweating the details



Every line, edge and surface has a purpose.

Whether it’s the diamond-chamfer edge of our lugs or the subtle directional hand-grained textures we work into each component before frame assembly, each CIRCA frame is a deep story balancing form, function and process.

Founder : Rich Fox

“What happened to American bike manufacturing, and what can we do to bring it back?”

As a designer and innovator for some of the world’s biggest brands and design consultancies, CIRCA founder Rich Fox decided to turn his curiosity towards what seemed like a simple question: why did the bike industry leave the USA, and what can we do to bring it back? Drawing on a talented network of designers and innovators, CIRCA is the answer to that question. 

what our customers are saying

I'd been riding ill-fitting, mass-produced bikes until my CIRCA. I knew a bike built for me would be an improvement, but I’ve been blown away at how much better it rides. The belt drive runs perfectly smooth. The design process was great and Rich was always quick to answer questions and help build the bike I needed. And it turns heads: I’ve been getting compliments since I first rode it away from CIRCA's shop.

Personal Service

It’s a little old school, but we believe in working directly with our customers to get to know your cycling needs.

Durable Weatherproof finishes

Our sapphire-hard anodized finishes are lighter and tougher than paint and impervious to the harshest weather.

Oregon built and sourced

We’re deeply committed to local production. Our frames are built by hand to your specifications in Portland, Oregon using locally sourced materials and processes.

Customization and fit

 A bike should fit you perfectly. Your CIRCA will be tailored to your body type, riding needs, and aesthetics, right down to the laser graphics.

Rapid Custom

Your custom bike can be built in as little as 4 weeks, which is a fraction of the time that most custom builders require.

Laser graphics

Our custom laser graphics options can inspire, tell a story or celebrate your brand. Work with our designers or provide your own artwork. 

Geometry: Standard, Short Reach, Long reach and custom.

Stock Geometries.

To optimize the fit of your CIRCA, we offer 4 geometry types: 1. Standard, 2. Short Reach (for riders with long legs), 3. Long Reach (for riders with long torsos) and 4. Full Custom. Our standard frame sizes fit about 90% of the population, while Short Reach and Long Reach geometries take care of almost everyone else. Our Full-Custom option is also available when necessary. All of our frames have ride characteristics that blend stability, efficiency and all-day comfort. 

Tire Widths.

For those who want to leave the pavement behind, our frames max out at 35c for a 700c wheel and 38c for 650b in the rear triangle. Tires up to 45c can be run on the front if desired.

Please inquire for details for our Short Reach, Long Reach and Full-Custom geometries.

Standard Fit
For riders who have typical proportions and have no problems fitting stock geometries.
Short Reach
Riders who have long legs compared to their overall height (and a shorter torso) may prefer the fit of our Short Reach geometries. This fit can also suit riders who want a more upright position.
Long Reach
Riders who have short legs but long torsos (sometimes called “long waisted”) will benefit from our Long Reach geometries.
