Introducing Firefly Bicycles

The best thing about my job is getting to meet new people and help them build their dream bikes. Our clients want genuine best in class products and a large part of my time is spent 'geeking away' to see what companies out there fit that bill and would be a welcome addition to our family.
The list of suitable companies is very small, so when a new one appears its very exciting indeed
It gives me immense pleasure to say we will be now working with Firefly Bicycles - I have known the guys for a number of years now (when they were at Independent Fabrication) and I love both their work and their passion for building dream bikes

Firefly Custom Bicycles was born out a deep love for handcrafting frames. Tyler, Jamie and Kevin have designed, crafted, and fit bikes for a combined 35+ years in the Boston area.

I am confident you’ll appreciate the intelligence, passion, meticulous attention to detail and quality materials that go into every frame they make. Every single Firefly bike is hand made in Boston, Massachusetts, from the highest quality stainless steel and titanium tubing. But their work extends beyond flawless craftsmenship.

"Our goal is not just to make world-class custom bicycles that fit and ride like a dream. We want to welcome each customer into the process, so they can experience their frame as we do, from start to finish. We want to make the experience intimate and personal, exemplified by the Firefly digital memory sticks we send with each frame, full of process and studio photos. We invite you to learn about our machines, tools, and stories on our blog and Tumblr. We believe that the deep connection to your bike and it's construction is what makes custom bikes truly special."

By staying small, with just three employees, and limiting their production, they have made time to give extra care to every frame and extra attention to every customer. The result is not just a custom bicycle, but a custom experience designed and executed to make you proud to own and driven to ride your Firefly.

We have three customer Firefly orders already confirmed - I will send as many pics and info as I can of the build process
Should be a great adventure for us all !
