Tucson Frame Builder: Cory Rosene

Photo by Jack Sanford

I keep running into stories about Cory Rosene's awesome hand built stainless steel 29'er that earned him the "Rookie of the Year" nod at the 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. It peaked my interest since he is a fellow Tucsonan. It looks like Cory either studied or apprenticed under David Bohm (also a Tucson native frame builder) of Bohemian Bicycles website / blog. David's website and blog are woefully out of date... the last note indicating that he was suspending taking orders until he got his backorders finished. Cory's website appears to be under construction and no new info is available sans articles from the NAHBS. I friended Cory on Facebook, if he accepts, I'll try to get the down low and update this blog.

In the meantime here are a couple of links/articles about Cory Rosene of Rosene Handbuilt Bicycles...
