The FBM Raconteur Bicycles are men’s and women’s urban riding bicycles designed and built in Central New York

The Raconteurs’ design combines the aesthetic of vintage English road bikes—the simple lines, small diameter tubing, a single color frame contrasting with polished metal components, a metal head badge, and a leather saddle—with modern materials and manufacturing techniques.
The foundation of the Raconteur bicycles is the tig welded frame and fork handcrafted in the FBM Machine shop in Central New York. The frame and fork tubing is 100% 4130 chromoly, selected for the right balance of strength, durability and weight. The fork is based on the FBM Sword fixed gear fork but has curved legs for a more comfortable ride.
