A new home!

After the past 9 years in Portland, Oregon and 5 years at the 108 N. Page St. shop, MAP Bicycles is starting a new chapter. I am very excited about my move to Chico, CA beginning in late September. A great cycling city in its own right, Chico is home to Paul Components Engineering , a lot of great food, some noteworthy beer, many many miles of great riding, not to mention a lot of my family and 300+ days of sunshine a year. Boy, it's going to be rough, but what can I say? It just feels right.

Oregon's list of builders is hard to match, but I'm looking forward to joining the ranks of other Northern California builders, many who are good friends, and many who I look up to and hope to get to know better. The new shop below has little character (yet), but a lot of potential and I have a good feeling a lot of great bikes are going to be rolling out of this shop very soon. Thanks to all of you who have helped me thus far. I feel like I'm just getting rolling. -Mitch

Hey Mitch, congrats on the move. You'll certainly be unique in Chico. Wish I still lived there!

Gino, the Bay is hard to beat though. I miss Berkeley but don't miss the cost of living. Make sure to say hello if you are ever back to Chico.
