Contes Engineering consists of the talents of two brothers who share a love for
engineering and cycling, though at two separate ends of the spectrum. The drive
of heavy competition inspires one of us, while the love of a leisurely and comfortable
cruise is what the other enjoys.
Likewise, one of us focused our career pursuits on the auto industry, durability
testing and project management, and the other an extreme racer and masters-degreed
mechanical engineer. Completely alike but vastly different, we create products that
appeal to a wide audience while also are thoughtfully planned, designed, and engineered.
Our manufacturing and marketing takes place in the sunny bicycle mecca of Southern
California, while the engineering and testing is hammered out in the cyclist’s paradise
of Portland, Oregon.
Between the two of us, we combine the knowledge of 12 years in the automotive testing
field and 15 years of professional factory-sponsored BMX racing. When you buy Contes
Engineering, you buy legitimate experience. No posers, no knockoffs.
Contes Engineering was born from the daydreams of two guys who wanted to fab and
ride their own brand, not settle for what was out there. Realizing that our own
brand was drawing a crowd wherever we went, we decided to take them to market.
With the support of our wives and children, and some faith and trust, we finally
launched in 2011.
