Sklar Custom Mountain Bikes


Mountain Bikes are where it all began for Sklar Bikes! These custom machines offer so many opportunities for great design, whether it be dialing in just the right combination of geometry, fit and component selection, or optimizing flex and feel with material selection. A custom mountain bike responds to the trail how you want it and acts like an extension of your body.

Whether you are gearing up for a month-long bikepacking trip or just looking for your new daily driver, a well built mountain bike is one with the trail, one with the rider and one heck of a fun time!

Custom mountain bikes are available from Sklar in all configurations imaginable. Rigid, single speed, geared, long travel, short travel... all of the above! Putting your riding style and goals into just the right machine for you is the goal. 

The Story

Between spending many summers as a mountain bike coach, racing mountain bikes and exploring wooded single track with my friends every chance I can get, I have far more saddle time on a mountain bike than your average bear. All that time equals a lot of thought about the way a bike should ride and perform. When you are buying a Sklar, it's more than just a pretty frame. It's all of that experience bundled in to the most fun bike you have ever owned.

Design Philosophy

At Sklar Bikes a custom hard tail mountain bike is all about playful yet aggressive geometry. Something you can pedal all day, and holds nothing back on the descents. Whether it has plus-sized three inch tires, or skinny race slicks, we will work to develop an incredibly fun ride that truly allows you to ride how you want.
