“Dean Bikes began in 1989 when two bicycle racers set out to produce the most technically advanced bikes in the world. With this goal in mind, each and every frame is hand built using only the finest materials. With our cold-worked stress-relieved 3/2.5 aerospace Titanium you can rest assured each and every Dean frame is built to perfection. Continuing with its high standards in quality, innovation, and technical performance, Dean continues to expand its product line with custom frame options, diverse color choices, and unique build kits.”
