Circa Cycles founder Rich Fox got in touch with us recently to share some big news: He just opened a new studio and showroom in northwest Portland. For a quick refresher on Circa, re-read our profile on him from back in August of last year.
Here’s more about the new space from Fox:
A little about the showroom:
- The Circa Design Studio and Showroom is located in the alphabet district of NW Portland.
- It’s a place to experience Circa bikes and create customized designs with our customers.
- We’ve got a road bike and city bike on display to help customers understand the versatility of our frame design and the creative possibilities of our unique manufacturing system.
- Customers visit the studio during a design session and work with Rich to design their bike from scratch, starting with the general bike type, and then working through a range of customization options including colors, fit optimization, drivetrain options, and accessories.
- The design session is facilitated through an on-screen presentation shown on a large, wall-mounted monitor, supplemented by real materials.
- After the initial design session, we create a sketch rendering of your bike to confirm that we’re all aligned, and that you love what you’ll be getting.

I’m in the courtyard area of the Activespace building. Look for the red signs.
