Reviews - News - Interviews
Since 2010, I've built awesome bikes and provided top notch customer service. It's not a secret that I have the best customers in the business and I really appreciate that. I'm too much of a straight-shooter, cut-the-BS kind of guy to be really into marketing so here are a collection of customer praise, magazine reviews, and interviews. Enjoy.
“Minnesotan Matt Appleman makes some of the most beautiful custom carbon bikes around, and every detail is a testament to his workmanship.
Carbon-wrapped joints add strength, the carbon dropouts are light and provide platforms for a little extra Appleman flair, and custom tube layups and geometry ensure the perfect fit and ride.
Expensive? Sure. But there are factory bikes that sell for more. This one will be yours and yours alone.”

“The best and most comfortable bike ever. Thanks so much.”
“Best riding bike I have ever owned.”
– Brock, South Carolina
“I loved my first [Appleman] frame. The new frame is a little better in every way. A little more comfortable, a little stiffer. A little nicer looking with the taller head tube. A little more responsive and I love the tube shape and logos. The extra fabrication you did for me is great. I wish I was a little faster but that is on me. Overall it is a wonderful ride. As I said I love my first frame and the way it looked but I think I love this one a little more.”
– Bill, 2x Appleman owner
“…My first impressions were correct, you have built me the best fitting bike I have ever had a chance to ride in my 45 years of cycling and it’s exactly what I wanted…”
