To hear Aaron Barcheck tell it, he wasn’t even planning to be a frame builder when he went to UBI to take their titanium frame building class. He definitely wasn’t thinking of starting a brand. But after finishing the class and working for Dean Titanium, well, one thing led to another and now Mosaic Cycles is turning 10 years old.
Since the launch of Mosaic, Barcheck has built the company from just him into an operation with half a dozen employees and one of the few operations that can reliably compete toe-to-toe with the likes of Seven Cycles and Moots.
More recently, Barcheck purchased Spectrum Powder and Paint Works. It’s not like Barcheck didn’t have enough on his plate, but the purchase gave Mosaic a chance to better the quality of finish on their framesets while continuing to serve the custom frame building community.
The Pull is brought to you by the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the world’s premier annual gathering of bicycle framebuilders and framebuilding enthusiasts. The 2019 show will take place March 15-17th at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, California.
