Welcome to Metal Guru

metal-guru.com is a resource for both hobby and professional bicycle frame builders.

The frame building raw materials, tools and components we carry are a curated collection. Each item is selected by Carl "Snarl" with the criteria that he would personally use it as part of a frame build. We provide access to highest quality premium goods to our customers, from hobbyists to professionals. We stock a wide selection of Columbus tubing and kits, dropouts, lugs, bottom bracket shells, consumables, tools, components and more, as well as custom parts from Metal Guru.

We are much more than just a raw materials supply house. We also offer educational courses in bicycle frame building and painting. Our contract bicycle frame fabrication, finishing and consulting services are a resource to the industry. We continue to produce our house brand 'Vicious Cycles' on premises.

We are proud to be the newest North American distributor for Columbus Tubing. Columbus has over 100 years of experience in applying both artisanal craftsmanship and innovative engineering techniques to the manufacture of their high performance tubing. The results are clear, throughout the careers of cycling legends like Merckx, Moser, Coppi and a long list of others, who set records and rode to victories on frames made from Columbus tubing.
