Salty Bicycles are handcrafted from steel by me, owner and sole builder, Chris Freed. I live in the beautiful city of Seattle, WA and have been a long-time bike commuter and recreational cyclist. After many years as a graphic designer, I found myself longing to get my hands dirty and to create something physical.
I build bikes that are simple, elegant, and show a close attention to detail. I feel that a bicycle is an extension of you and should reflect your riding style, whether it’s on your commute to work or taking a beating at the Saturday criterium. I wake up every day excited to overcome a new challenge: to create a functional piece that will become a classic – your classic. I look forward to collaborating with you and, hopefully, putting that childhood smile back on your face.
