“The tangible act of turning practical performance goals into a bike of singular personality and beauty. This is Mosaic Cycles, not confined by self-imposed limitations but rather working to embrace each rider’s aspirations.” – Mosaic Bespoke Bicycles

“Underpinned by Mosaic’s values, each project is an expression of the Mosaic philosophy; one forged over many years of fabrication, right here and now, the limitations of factory bikes no longer exist.”

Continued from above: “The rider is at the center of the Mosaic process. Regardless of your needs, we have a model for you. Our materials of choice are titanium and steel. While each offers different ride characteristics, titanium is our preference due to its versatility. By using oversized butted tubing and modern design elements, titanium allows a full spectrum of ride options that can rival the stiffness of top-shelf carbon, or create the compliant feel of all-day endurance. Our Mosaic steel frames utilize modern tubing to achieve timeless ride quality without compromise in weight. Both steel and titanium are light and lively, but most importantly they are forever materials. We guarantee delivery within 6 weeks, if not sooner.”

“The process begins with your fitting by working with a Mosaic Dealer to dial in your geometry for a one-of-a-kind bike or building within our stock size program. Once the geometry is decided we move into fabrication. Each bike undergoes Mosaic’s small batch process, one at a time with delivery in just over a month from placing an order. Our experienced team of frame builders prides themselves on the precision, attention to detail, and high caliber finish work put into each bike that leaves the shop.”

“We believe that fit and performance should be balanced with aesthetics which is why you will find a high-level of attention to detail in the subtle etching and polished logos that create a style uniquely Mosaic, even from a distance. If color is what you are looking for, all Mosaic frames are painted locally by Spectrum Paint and Powderworks offering a variety of schemes to choose from. Your Mosaic Dealer will walk you through all the paint and finish options for your bike during the ordering process. Your bike is delivered to your Mosaic Dealer within 6 weeks and built by their professional staff, ensuring your first ride is a dialed one.”

  1. I’ve never taken Mosaic seriously since, unlike various top-notch ti makers like Jim Kish, Seven, Firefly, Carl Strong, Enigma, Moots, T-Lab, etc etc, there was no pricing information on their website as of a couple years ago. I just looked, still can’t find any pricing on there, is something wrong with my browser? I even contacted them once, politely as one should, inquiring about pricing and received a shockingly curt response to contact a dealer. Customer service is not their thing, I guess. Sorry for asking! On to the next company’s website… hey look at the welds on that Strong gravel bike! Hmm, that guy is really friendly and responsive as well, hmm.

  2. That is odd, looks like a couple of the bikes have pricing on the page (see GT-2 45 gravel) but the majority don’t. Even a starting price would be great.

  3. Yes, I looked at getting a Mosaic but for the frame I was interested in I saw and/or got four different prices from four different sources. Fuggetaboutit.
