IN PORTLAND, OR.
At CIRCA, we started with a simple question: How do we build great bikes using the resources of the local manufacturing ecosystem of Portland, Oregon? We broke some rules, created some new ones and ended up with a refined balance of form, function, process and of course, some really amazing bicycles.
As a designer and innovator for some of the world’s biggest brands and design consultancies, CIRCA founder Rich Fox decided in 2013 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.
Built with incredible precision using our proprietary, Oregon-based manufacturing system, CIRCA Cycles custom builds each of our iconic bikes by hand from domestic aluminum.
