Ruckus Composites was founded in 2008 with an honest desire to change the world and shake things up the only way I knew how. At start-up I was focused on primarily producing high performance bicycle parts. Grounded with a long history of tinkering since I was a born and coupled with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, I set out to do what I love best, invent, inspire, and create.
As time went on, in an effort to collect as much information about failure modes in carbon fiber bike frames, we started collecting, dissecting and repairing broken frames. The local scene caught wind that carbon frames could be repaired by somebody in Portland and more and more frames started coming our way, at this point the business began slowly shifting it’s focus from just manufacturing to both manufacturing and repairing carbon fiber.
Over the coming years we are aiming to continually refine and develop new composite technologies to further the industry and leave the world better off then when we started.
