When a frame builder has access to an in-house graphics department and paint booth, great things happen. Thomas from Horse Cycles‘ partnership with Ben Falcon has really paid off. Ben’s paint mixed with Horse’s frame design and construction delivers show-stopping road bikes like this.
This is so rad:
“The Sidecar Bicycle is a stout three wheeler with a hardwood flatbed and a small 12″ wheel. Here at Horse, we use it for work and for play. It’s perfect for hauling packages around town, but after hours we throw a surfboard or two on her and cruise down to the beach. It has approximately a 100lb load capacity = 3 large dogs. Made entirely of super strong chromoly alloy steel, this bike was built strong and Horse tough.
The bicycle comes complete and ready to ride with 35mm tires, Brooks Saddle and Brooks Grips. The flatbed is made of hardwood oak, but is also available in reclaimed Coney Island Boardwalk salvaged from Hurricane Sandy.”

From those sick 29r frames, to dry bag backpacks, waxed hats, camping knives and even an ax with a sheath, the Horse Cycles collection is looking great. Congrats Thomas, you’ve got yourself quite the collection.
All of this is made in the Brooklyn, NY, USA.
It’s hard sometimes to visualize a bike’s potential from just a frame photo, which is probably why Thomas built up one of those 29’r framesets as a complete for a photo shoot. I still think this is one of the nicer 29’r production frames I’ve seen on the market and at that price, who can complain? Lovely. See more at the Horse Cycles Flickr and pricing at Horse Cycles.
Yikes! I didn’t expect to see this beauty when I was catching up on my Flickr browsing. Thomas at Horse Cycles just completed a run of production 29’r hardtails, complete with custom paint, done in house, right down to detailing the Rock Shox fork and ENVE stem. What do I think? Dirty thoughts… like a white horse fell into the mud dirty.
The price? $999 for a frame only, with a 3-4 week lead time. See more at Horse Cycles!
After a successful Kickstarter and a booked pre-order last year, Brooklyn’s Horse Cycles continues to offer four very affordable, made in the USA frame options, ranging from racer to casual cruiser. Check out the full details at Horse Cycles and see the other three frame offerings below.
Man, it feels good to be home, back to work and checking out some new videos that I missed over the weekend. Here’s a short one on Horse Cycles!

Thomas at Horse Cycles has been cranking away at the Urban Tour Project in his Brooklyn framebuilding shop. Local photographer Nate Mumford swung by to document the production. Head on over to the Horse Flickr for more!
Thomas from Horse Cycles has been working on his new sub-brand Urban Tour for well over a year. Marketed towards, you guessed it, urban portage on a bike. Urban Tour has products to fit every budget from caps to stems and complete bikes.
The latest from Horse Cycles is this classic trackbike for Mac. Built with a Suntour kit, bright red with gold accents, this beauty is going to look great with a little bit of street grime on it. Check out the full set at the Horse Flickr.
