Open MI.ND California

USA Made Open MIND. The craftsmanship is startling.

"The bike is as devastatingly effective as it is visually innocuous"

Open MIND California - Discreet. Iconic.

We live in a shouty age. A generalised clamouring for airspace. Hence this bike for Paul is particularly refreshing. It is a quiet bike externally, but the discerning will gasp as they pore over the craftsmanship and quality. Reports back from the field, for those of us lucky to have piloted a MIND CA are that the bike is as devastatingly effective as it is visually innocuous. All MIND CA's are by definition limited edition. The workshop in Los Angeles struggles to make more than a couple a week. The MIND CA will always be one of the rarest bikes on the planet. We like that.

"To be honest, the MIND CA really didn’t need stiffer than standard MIND at all, but engineers will be engineers"

Most people would drift by Paul's bike, unaware of everything that it represents. Some people, but not all.

What our clients say

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."

  • "Hey Julian and Phil, I hope you are both well. I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great! Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before. All the best, Hannah"

    MJ

    Cyclist

  • "A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"

    TD

    Endurance MTB rider

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
