American Custom Bicycles in Steel, Titanium and Ti/carbon mix

Model Name Map

Naming a bike is hard. You want to communicate something about what the bike will look like or what it will do. It has to be catchy. It has to be easy to pronounce. I has to not mean something obscene in a language you don’t speak. Over the years we have tried different names for some of our bikes, and it can be confusing to those who are trying to understand what their bike is called now, or those who want replacement decals.

We’ve created this simple name map to clarify the naming for our various models through the years.
