Last year, Mosaic gave their bikes categories, providing a starting point for customers, and they added a disc brake road bike option and more mountain bike variations. This year, the story’s all about their dealers. As proof, we actually received the photo above from Prestige Cycles in the UK before we ever got the answers back from Mosaic’s Aaron Barcheck. It may not look like much yet, but Prestige’s Stephen Roche promises it’ll be on display in Charlotte with plenty of boutique UK components, an amazing paint scheme and a Di2 build. With a raw frame weight of just 1318g, it’s a pretty good starting point.
BIKERUMOR: What are your main building materials?
AARON: Mosaic Cycles builds with Titanium, Steel and Stainless Steel.
BIKERUMOR: What’s new with your company since NAHBS last year?
AARON: Throughout 2013 and into 2014 NAHBS Mosaic continues to work hand in hand with some of the best Custom/Handmade supporting bike shops in the Nation and now globally. We’ve added new Mosaic partners in Chicago (Velosmith Bicycle Studio), Toronto (Blacksmith Cycle) and Brisbane Australia (Crankstar Bespoke Cyclery) to name a few and are excited to bring the brand to new areas.
For the product side of things we’re offering our framesets now as a carbon module with Enve stem/seatpost and a Ti module with Mosaic built titanium stem and seatpost! Also launching at NAHBS will be a gravel grinder model, something we’re built for years but never put a name on. Around these parts of the country (Boulder, CO) the Gravel Grinder is King with so many dirt roads and riding potential all year.
