Alchemy Bicycle Company

Helmed by a guy who earned his bike-building stripes in Colorado and later went on to weld for NASA and the Air Force, Alchemy builds fully customizable two-wheelers from the ground up: first choose your frame type (Road, Cross, Mountain, Fixie, 29er), trick it out with parts from Shimano, Campagnolo, and SRAM, then opt for one of their signature paint jobs or your own color scheme, unless that scheme happens to be Ginger with Freckles.
