Mars Cycles

“Casey Sussman is Mars Cycles, which is based in beautiful Moss Beach, California, south of San Francisco along Highway 1. Although his bikes are a bit iconoclastic, with funky paint jobs and often featuring 420-friendly themes (Mars Cycles showed a bike at the 2016 NAHBS with a fully-stainless steel integrated smoking device), Sussman got his chops as a builder in the traditional homeland of handbuilt bicycles, England. He studied the art of fillet-brazing at The Bicycle Academy in Frome, England, and remains the only American to have attended the school.” Learn more about Mars Cycles here –
