ABOUT THE BUILDER

Tony Pereira artfully crafts custom, one-of-a-kind creations built to the needs of each individual client, working from his small shop in Portland, Oregon.

Inspired by the style and innovations from the mid-century French Constructeur period, Tony builds everything from 29er single-speed bicycles and randonneuring rigs to touring, road, cyclocross and transportation bikes. The techniques are simple, yet precise and carefully executed to balance strength with lust-inspiring details of craftsmanship.

Tony has won numerous awards for his work, including Best Road, Off-Road and Fillet Brazed bikes at the 2007 North American Handmade Bike Show and first place in the 2009 Oregon Manifest Constructor’s Design Challenge.
