Dream Cycle specializes in classically designed, custom built and hand crafted cro-moly steel bicycles.
How does this work? Come into the shop & feel free to ask questions. We’re open 7 days a week and have about a dozen bikes built up in different ways for you to check out! Some are complete bikes from Surly & Salsa while the others are custom creations. The complete bikes can be ordered in any size. About half the bikes we sell are custom built.
If you like what you see then feel free to schedule a consultation. It’s important to know that there is no obligation to buy once you’ve done a consult. It’s more like a fact finding mission. We’d like to sit down with you for 20-30 minutes to go through a questionnaire. At this point we can show you the different model options, discuss the ‘features & benefits’ of different products & then make notes about the details including colour choices. It’s actually kinda fun dreaming about what your next bike could be.
At this point we have all the info we need to work up a quote for you. We simply fill out a template with all the details discussed during the consult & email you a quote. If you like what you see then the next step is to schedule a bike fitting. This is very important to us, as we are only interested in selling you a perfect fitting bicycle that can last you for years & years. Our bike fittings takes about an hour & is very thorough, in fact you’ll definitely learn something.
Once we know what size to order, we secure a deposit, (50% of the total) and get to ordering & assembling you your new bike. This usually takes 2-3 weeks for ‘Stock’ sizes and up to 10 weeks for a handmade bike.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Our approach helps us design a ‘Better Bike’ that is tailored to your needs. This requires some homework on your part. We need you to tell us about the sort of handlebars, the type of saddle and pedals you’d prefer, your style of shifters, brakes & so on. The more details the better & if you’re not sure about a part or what it’s called, don’t worry! Our job is to offer detailed & expert advice.
How to build a quality steel bicycle!
Dream Cycle specializes in classically designed, custom assembled as well as hand crafted, steel bicycle frames. While we certainly can, and do, create custom bicycles, we always enjoy being pleasantly surprised by the amazing bikes designed by you- our customers!
How does this work, you ask? We prefer to deal with our customers face to face. Initial meetings happen in the store to provide you with a look at how our operation works, plus you get to check out some of the sample bikes we’ve built. If we’ve impressed you, inquire about a quote and set up a consultation. During the consult we talk about your existing bike, your likes and dislikes, and, of course, some of the things you’d like your next bike to do for you.
