’99 ARESBIKES, I started with York Uno to develop and sell frames, parts and complete bikes from the concept that Japanese rider want to make a bike to win in the world contest. Seventeen years passed since then, ARESBIKES ‘products have produced a signature frame of many famous riders who are active not only domestically but also overseas, with a lot of victories with riders.
It has been swelling in my head for several years, I would like to realize the manufacturing of supplying the custom frame to the rider as ARESBIKES so that the rider could expresses the originality with a trick.
Many hours and equipment are required to manufacture a frame of the bicycle. Such as molds for precisely cutting in lengths and angles to fit each frame with different geometry, the processing of tubes from arranging drawings, the arrangement of tubes, cutting with mold, welding, painting etc., and jigs for welding cost large amount for each unique frame.
Everyone wish to be successful!
In order to manipulate a BMX like a limb and a hard trick with a bike, I think that riding a BMX that matched the rider himself is one shortcut to progress. I would like to give all the riders this concept when ARESBIKES starts.
Here is the biggest theme of this project
Tommy Wang, the founder of The Omni Cycle Inc., boasts tremendous credit in bicycle industry as a professional manufacturer in Cr-Mo products. The encounter with him dates back more than ten years ago. It was a chance to develop a new front fork, but usually it was from the story of a tubing that he talked about the work starting with the creation of drawings based on size. He often worries about welding technology and finish as a manufacturing craftsman but he designs the tubing itself to give a stronger strength to the bicycle frame down tube and stressful places against the fork tubes. At the user level I think there is no opportunity to see how the real structure of the front fork tube is, but the front fork of ARESBIKES then uses a tube of a special shape later called a flute tube, so that a strong front fork Announced. This technology is also applied to handlebars and you can see jagged tubes by looking in from the handle end. Similarly to the ARESiG’s custom frame, a new technology Omni 20/20 tubes are using, which is conceived according to the size of the frame. In this way, Tommy is not a only factory manager who is simply producing ordered items but a craftsman and a technician.

When did you become interested making bike frame and parts.
When I graduated from high school in 1977, my got my first job in Giant, and after that I have more experiences in bicycle industry and considered that bicycle is my destiny, the creation and upgrade of bicycle would be a task of my life. “It would be enough to completely accomplish one or two things in my life”, this is my life philosophy, and bicycle is my choice.
Please have you let the insistence of the design of their own frame tubing.
It’s meaningful that you could offer great service to your customer that met his need in your business career, and that’s why I believed custom frame project is so important to end users, everyone is unique in personality and also physical conditions, so it’s definitely necessary to have a custom frame plan for every rider who really cares about riding, and this is also the trend in the world. “This frame is no longer be a merchandise, it’s gonna be your baby!”
Finally, do you have a message to the rider to use in the future of your production to the frame.
