Loco Machine is based in Richmond, VA and helmed by Hinmaton Hisler. This endeavor was born out of Himaton's love of cycling and passion for hands-on, cutting edge fabrication processes.
A bike builder himself, Hinmaton began designing and fabricating the parts he needed for his own custom frames. His efforts have expanded and now Loco Machine works in titanium, aluminum, stainless and steel, to offer high-performing parts tailored to custom frame builders.
Whether it's a hardtail xc race frame or a sleek track frame. If it's got wheels and can be built better or made cooler, we're developing product for it.
Stijl Cycles: In addition to Loco Machine's custom CNC machined parts I also build frames under this moniker. Based in Richmond, VA, Stijl Cycles is building for a wide range of cyclists—from mountain and road enthusiasts to uber-commuters. These riders have inspired a similarly broad range of builds from performance racers to exquisite city bikes.
We seek artistry in the synthesis of cutting edge functionality and hand crafted detail. Complementing traditional cycle craft with computer controlled fabrication equipment and parametric modeling software, we create purpose driven tubes, brackets, and dropouts. Our bikes take on a unique aesthetic that embraces both traditional and modern design and fabrication techniques.
Our design process is comprehensive and specifically tailored. All the parts that make up our frames are carefully considered. Every frame design is informed by the unique needs and preferences of its cyclist.
