Bilenky Cycle Works

Whether you opt to custom-build because you want your steel-framed steed to fit you like a glove or because the ride of your dreams (say, a touring cargo semi-recumbent tandem in electric blue) just isn’t available off a rack, the legendary Stephen Bilenky and crew are your hookup. They’re the masterminds of Philadelphia Bike Expo and the madcap Junkyard Cyclocross, and their Olney-based cyclery has become the matrix of our indie, artisanal two-wheeled scene.
