Matter Cycles

Geometry and Grins

Matter Cycles come from cycling mecca Boulder, Colo. and specialize in mountain bikes. Owner Collin Schaafsma says, “I occasionally make a bike with tires narrower then 40mm but it’s pretty rare.”

Clean designs and fun geometry characterize Matter’s bikes. Schaafsma says,”Matter bikes are no nonsense machines made for having fun. I’m a total geometry geek when it comes to designing for dirt and I really spend a ton of time on the geometry and I think it shows with grins on peoples faces more than anything.”

“The aesthetics are simple and clean and might not stand out to some folks but to experience one of my bikes you need to really ride it. These aren’t the type of bikes you pamper, they are made to be ridden hard and to have tons of fun on them. Sometimes it means going the extra mile in the fabrication process to pull off the geometry or to keep things modern but it’s totally worth it.”

“My bikes are for people who like to ride their machines into the ground and get rowdy!”
