Normal Wooden Bicycles?
Normal Bicycles is really about challenging the idea of what is normal.
We aspire to create and build unique bicycles and components in North America in a way that promotes sourcing locally, improving availability, and advancing sustainability. This is tough in the bicycle industry but absolutely worth the effort. As an example, we build with responsibly sourced North American hardwoods. On the occasions that we use exotic wood species they are reclaimed from old pieces of furniture.
Chris & Jess
We started Normal Bicycles out of our love for cycling and our passion for the environment. We ride as a mode of transport, form of exercise, and a mental reset, with our preferred routes taking us off the beaten path. Our ideal rides include a lot of wandering and exploring of new places, and this is what we design for in our bikes.
Between the two of us we’ve spent our careers focused on business, technology, engineering, and sustainability, and Normal Bicycles is the culmination of our passion and experience.
