Remember all those times when you said to yourself, “Man, if I could go back in time and start over knowing then what I know now?” Remember how you frequently told yourself “I wish I could just quit this job and work at a bike shop?”
Andy Kessler and Gerard Vroomen, the founders of Open Cycle, are living that dream.
But rather than dream big -- they’ve both been there and done that - Kessler and Vroomen launched Open Cycle in 2012 with a much more narrow vision than they had been part of in the past. Instead of creating another BMC or Cervelo, the friends set the goal of making the bikes they loved on a smaller scale and making those bikes as unique as they are exquisite.
Open Cycle boldly states they are “working hard to stay small.” While there are vendors and contractors, Open Cycle is still very much a two-man show with Andy and Gerard pouring over data and computer models to design the next best bicycle.
