About Us

World class workmanship, elite performance and uncompromising quality

Pacenti Cycle Design was founded by Kirk Pacenti in 2001. We are a privately-owned company based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. All our products are proudly designed and developed in the USA.

Everything we make began with an idea, and those ideas came from a ride. We prototype and test, engineer relentlessly, and test again. If it doesn't make riding better it doesn't go any further. But if it's a hit—and we've been lucky enough to have had a few, like leading the charge on 650b/27.5" MTB wheels and pioneering wider lightweight rims—we'll put it in production, aiming for the most flawless execution we can muster.

When you buy our components, you're making a choice. We think every dollar you spend is a vote, and when you're voting for us over the other guys we want you to do so with complete confidence. When you use our parts it's more than an upgrade—it's the beginning of a pact, an implicit pledge from us to help make your ride better.

We do more than make parts for your bike. We make the components for your next best bike ride. We're in this for the same reasons you are—chasing that perfect ride. And we're here to help you catch it.

We're not a bike company. We're not even a parts company. We're a rider company.
