Foresta Frames:

My name is Craig Forest Ryan, and I am Foresta Frames. I build lugged steel road frames with classic design elements. I use only the highest quality materials available, and as a one man shop I design, build, and paint all of my own work within my shop in Noblesville Indiana. As a “New Builder” I enjoy time in my shop, and find it compliments my 23 years of experience as a high school Visual Arts teacher. As I begin my 5th year of framebuilding, the Foresta “style” has emerged, and I present it to you at NAHBS 2011 as a “New Builder.” I currently offer three distinct models of road bikes, the 359, Jake Brake, and Chicago. Look for me at the show, talk to me, get to know me. I hope you enjoy my work.
