We are a student-run Mechanical Engineering club out of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. We are dedicated to learning and teaching modern methods of bicycle frame building to other students at Cal Poly.


Our mission is to give students at Cal Poly experience in the design and manufacturing process of bicycle frames and components. Through our club, any student with an idea for a bicycle can design and ultimately fabricate it. We teach 3D modeling, welding techniques, composite construction, and more to any student who wants to learn. As a result of our unique interests, we are the world’s first collegiate student-run club dedicated to the design and construction of bikes.


Walter Minehart


Walter is a 4th year Mechanical Engineering student from St. Paul, Minnesota. He is a strong advocate for unnecessary bends, metallic finishes, and straight gauge tubing. His three favorite things are well made tools, a good pair of socks, cheese, and cooking dinner for friends. Do not ask him about peanut butter, he knows too much, and he will never stop talking. His favorite trail is Mariposa in SLO.


Colin Reay

Vice President

Colin is a 4th year ME student from the Bay Area. He’s a hardcore full-squish nerd and likes to build bikes and bike-related tools and fixtures. You can usually find him dipping tungsten in the machine shop or designing cargo bikes on his computer.


Bradley Maruoka

Sponsorship and Outreach Coordinator

Bradley is a 2nd year Mechanical Engineering student from the Bay Area. He enjoys 2x drivetrains, tanwall tires, loud hubs, and has an unhealthy addiction to nice components. He has no claimed favorite trail but likes anything that involves climbing very steep hills very fast.


Logan Femling


Logan is a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering student. He's famous for building Nightmare, a sketchy electric pixie bike, and he once got pulled over while riding a Onewheel and carrying a pixie bike in each hand.


Colleen McCandless

Social Coordinator/Webmaster

Colleen is a 4th year Mechanical Engineering student from Livermore, CA. She likes talking to people, practicing welding, and building pixie bikes. She secretly likes running more than biking, however, she stills enjoys the local trails especially at Montaña de Oro State Park.
