Brian is a born tinkerer with the aesthetic of an artist and a meticulous attention to detail. He is not in the business of mass producing bicycles. Brian builds your bike from start to finish including paint. He takes the time to know the bike that is right for you and takes the time to build it right. Every bicycle that he builds is unique to its individual owner. Brian has extensive experience with a variety of materials (steel, titanium, and carbon) as well as a wide variety of bicycles (road, mountain, and cyclocross). As tempting as it might be to treat these bikes like works of art, they have untold miles of real world testing in races, club rides, and the broken pavement and gravel of the back roads of Idaho.
The day I took delivery of his new Kelson bike, “It was like pulling on a perfectly fitted custom glove, incredibly light and supple. It was like settling back in the seat of a sports car, stepping fully down on the gas. It was a perfect extension of me – but faster! Back fatigue, seat fatigue, leg fatigue are all minimized on a Kelson bike.”
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
