Handbuilt to help get you lost

Ready for whatever...

Purpose-built bikes made one at a time

Mountain bikes, fatbikes, cyclocross, touring, 29+, whatever. Dream it up and I will make it.

Custom, to every last detail...

Every Meriwether frame is unique to you. Before any tubing hits the jig, I will make sure your frame is exactly what you want.

Want to see what we can do?
Fully Custom

Each frame is unique, there are no stock sizes here. We will design your frame from scratch, made for your body and riding style.


Every Meriwether starts with your measurements, and your dreams. You are an integral part of the design process so we get it perfect the first time.
