Map Quest

When peddling your wares, you seek the bespoke route.

Head to Portland’s MAP Bicycles, where Mitch Pryor customizes peddlers for style- (and comfort-) conscious commuters, tourers, randonneurs, and porteurs everywhere. (This year, he won the award for Best City Bike at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show for a cream commuter with cork accents.)

After a phone or in-person consultation about your individual riding style, transportation needs, and physique, Pryor will build a custom frame from a blend of steel tubing in his timeless style.

Your aesthetic choices determine what lug sets, seat, and details go on your two personally selected wheels.

How sweet you’ll look upon the seat of a bicycle built for you.
