January 21st, 2014

We’re pleased to be showing two bikes at the Jamestown Art Center’s Design Expo 2014, in Jamestown RI. Come see Jay’s stainless-lugged super commuter and my ultralightweight belt-drive fixie, as well as some other great local design and craft. The show runs through Feb 23 2014, but we’ll be there with snacks Thursday Jan 23 from 6-9.

Design Expo 2014


October 1st, 2013

That’s right, this Friday, 7 to 10! We’ll be there along with all your other favorite New England bike builders, even though we’re still your total favorite-favorite, right?

This is it:

New England Builder’s Ball

Seriously, you should come. We’ll be showing off a ridiculous amount of polished stainless, 29er, belt drive, kandy kolor kraziness. Really. You have no idea. And I hear some of the other builder’s are ok too. Mostly because we do their paint for them! Boom! Yup, I totally went there.

The 2012 New England Builders Ball is on October 5th!

September 10th, 2012

Mark your calendars people, it’s the 2012 New England Builders Ball! That is if you want to meet a bunch of awesome framebuilders from New England. It’ll be happening right here in our hometown of Providence, RI in the beautiful Biltmore Hotel. If it’s anything like last year’s event, it’s going to be a good time. See you there!


October 18th, 2011

As in, this Sunday October 23, from 2-6 pm. Hard to believe, but it’s been ten years (and a month) since Circle A first opened it’s doors in Carpenter Mills. One move and nearly 250 bikes later, we’re still hobbling along.

Hope to see you there!


September 24th, 2011

What? A Providence bike show? Yes indeedy, it’s really happening, coming right up, and Circle A will be there!

So as you probably know, the Providence Cyclocross Festival is coming soon, October 7-9 at Roger Williams Park.

But in addition to that, the first ever New England Builders Ball is happening Friday night (Oct 7) from 8-10 at the Biltmore. If it was good enough for Buddy, it sure as hell is good enough for us. We’ll be there with lots of our New England bike-building friends, so come check out our latest work.

Hopefully we’ll see you there, and then 2 weeks later for our Tenth Anniversary open house, Sunday October 23 from 2-6. More details later!

Philly Bike Expo, Halloween 2010!

October 23rd, 2010

Come see us and tons of other builders at the Philly Bike Expo, October 30-31! Philly is a great cycling city and there are tons of events to witness & enjoy. We’ll be at booth 1046, look us up!


Boston Area Handbuilt Bicycle Exhibition

October 7th, 2010

The Boston Area Handbuilt Bicycle Exhibition happened on September 23rd and was a chaotic frenzy of people. Maybe it was the free beer or maybe it was the amazing bikes that were on display but it was a great success in my eyes. Organizers Bryan from Royal H and Josh from Open Bicycle let the radius go out to everyone who could access Boston from the commuter rail so Circle A was invited too. I didn’t get many pictures but a very responsible Tony Maietta did. Check out his shots on his Flickr page.

We still have one more show to go this year so if you’re in the Philadelphia area on the 30th or 31st of October, come over and say hi to us at the Philadelphia Bike Exposition.
