about us

Nickel City Cycles makes, custom, handbuilt bicycle frames in Buffalo NY. Each Frame is made to measure using a unique blend of tubing to make a bike that both fits and rides perfectly. 

The shop is owned and operated by Nathan "Brawn" Klumpp and Patrick "Brains" Meszler. Patrick has been riding, racing, and working in bike shops since he was a teenager. He uses that experience to fit and design the bikes. Nathan went to welding school as a teen and has worked in several weld and machine shops, where he has honed his craft. Nathan does all of the welding and more complicated metal working.


Nickel City Cycles is located at The Foundry on Buffalo's east side. The Foundry is an old warehouse that has been turned into a space for small businesses, education, and community events.
