About Ferrum Bikes
We started Ferrum Bikes because some of the best times of our life happened in the saddle of a chromoly steel bike frame. We missed everything about that feeling of our favorite bikes we grew up with, maybe because we were young, wild, reckless and care free. We channeled that same energy when designing and creating our first mountain bike frame and we knew that chromoly steel was the key ingredient to get that feeling of excitement back. We pick up where the juggernaut bike brands of the 80’s and 90’s left off. The brands that made the bad ass chromoly bikes that we had the most fun riding inspired us to bring that back to the MTB world today. We make our frames with that spirit of the best bikes we rode but with modern technology and geometry for you to rip around on and enjoy today. The best times of our lives aren’t behind us anymore, we make our mountain bike frames for you to make new memories on today.
We’ve been fabricating and welding for over 20 years and in 2017 we made our first chromoly steel full suspension mountain bike frames due to the fact that there were very few bike bike brands with aggressive, now modern (as of 2022) geometry back then and steel was our specialty. We’re not bound by corporate bean counting and because were not bound by big corporate board rooms we were able to design and build a frame that was 5 years ahead of it’s time. Anyone with talent, perseverance, skill, and enough courage can make a chromoly steel frame mountain bike. Knowing what works, what materials to use and where, how one factor effects another, that only comes with years of experience. It’s just not worth it to trust your hard earned money with inexperienced outfits. Learning from experience is the best teacher and we’re happy you’re interested in supporting us and allowing us to continue to do our best.
Originally founded in Las Vegas, Nevada from backgrounds in motocross and BMX racing. We found that we couldn’t find a bike from any manufacturer that we agreed with completely. Maybe everything was lacking a soul or just too pricey for what it offered, we weren’t about to settle and compromise didn’t exist in our vocabulary so we set forth on a monumental challenge to make a bike that was the best of all the best we’ve ridden, thanks to outside-of-the-box thinking. We’re looking forward to hearing that you agree. Steel was the secret ingredient and we’re committed to implementing this magic material in all that we create.
We believe Chromoly steel mountain bike frames ride the best, give you the best feel and biggest smile on your face! Chromoly has been a direct beneficiary of recent high-tech breakthroughs in science and manufacturing. Pushing high-tech companies to the limits of what can be humanly achieved. Even we were stunned to read online that the highest strength to weight ratio metal is an alloy of chromoly, not titanium. While we aren’t touting our bike to be the lightest on the market or strongest (anyone telling you that, we suggest avoiding!), we are proud of being comparable within 1-2lbs. yet more durable than competitive materials. This is achieved by the trickle down effect. High-tech industries are supplying to multi billion dollar markets that are demanding the best for their products in transportation and when their main market is satisfied, what is left over goes to the smaller industries such as bicycles.
We’re excited to offer our product to the market at an outrageous value. Shopping similar options on the market will yield very high priced results. We believe they’re asking every dime they’re worth. Whoa, yeah we sound kind of contradictory with that statement because we’re selling ours for a fraction of the price. That’s because of a dream of getting more people into the sport and not making people break their banks. We believe our product is the best of all worlds. Scrapping what doesn’t work, reinforcing what does work. Designed for the rigorous demands of modern riding and racing. We want you to take your bike wherever you desire and shred to your content.
