The recent Roval Terra press camp wasn’t just a showcase of trick new wheels. Thanks to Mike Yakubowicz and his shop, Blacksmith Cycle, we were treated to a veritable smorgasbord of beautiful custom bikes from all over the world.

About Blacksmith Cycle
Since 2011, Blacksmith Cycle has been a leading source of high-end custom bicycles, not just in its home in Toronto, Canada, but for buyers around the world. The shop claims to offer more NAHBS builders than any other bike shop on the planet, and based on the bikes we saw and rode at the Roval Terra press camp, we have no reason to believe that’s not the case.
Blacksmith Cycle is a performance-oriented bicycle shop, fit studio and design consultancy rolled into one, but most of all, they are purveyors of premium road and gravel bikes, with a focus on fit, materials and technology.
