Beauty in Simplicity
Pratt Frameworks is a Rhode Island based bicycle company created by designer / maker Max Pratt. We specialize in steel bicycles for on and off road riding. Our goal is to create a timeless machine that will deliver high performance for lifetimes. Simplicity, function, and elegance are at the heart of every Pratt frame.
See our three base models, and get started on customizing your new bike.
Each frame that leaves the Pratt shop is designed specifically for its rider. We take into account every measurement that effects the way a bike will feel, look, and perform. Our tube sets and wall thicknesses vary based on riding styles and weights, and our tubing profiles vary across each base model. Through prototyping and field testing we have determined our favorite frame and fork angles for three base models; track, cyclocross, and road. Each of these can be customized into 100 meter race machines or all-day tourers.
All of our frames are handmade in Providence, Rhode Island. We prioritize small scale production, and accountable manufacturing. Our goal is to build close relationships between designers, makers, and customers.
