Jon has built frames for many of todays best know handmade builders. From the first days of mountain bikes to the professional racing scene. Frames handmade by Jon have been around the world under some of the best athletes.
Jon doesn't have a count of how many handcrafted frames Jon has produced but it's numbering the 1,000's. It wasn't all perfection there is a learning curve to mastering a craft. "The frames we are producing today have been tried and tested not only by myself!"
Jon has really focused on building frames in steel and truly mastering this beautiful material. Other materials like aluminum and carbon are really interesting to me and I've begun exploring them. Sometime in the nearer future you'll see some special things coming from our frame shop!
Jon's role at Tallerico Cycles is running and overseeing the frame shop. Not a frame or bicycle goes out our door without Jon having a hand in the process.
Jon is also a seasoned racer and you can often times find him mixing it up on the local Lodi group rides.
