Kent Stubblefield - Kent came to Snyder Cycles in 2013 with the hopes of building a bicycle he had designed while in school at Georgia Tech for Mechanical Engineering. He has since graduated and designed several bicycles for our customers and for production. In addition, he is our head powder coater, resident neat freak, and can be seen wrenching or helping on the sales floor at our store. Kent will soon be ready for his own welding station as he hones his TIG welding skills in the warehouse. Snyder Cycles would not be where we are today without the business development efforts and hard work of this upstanding gentleman. Aside from his time spent on a downhill or freeride bike, Kent can be found hiking in the woods or skiing out west.
Haegan Altizer - A young and aspiring racer, Haegan stepped foot into the Snyder Cycles warehouse in late 2012 with the hopes of learning to build bike frames of his own. He has since toured Europe with his girlfriend on the two touring bikes he made and continues his education in fabrication with us. He is currently honing his wheel building and mechanic skills towards expert level at our retail store, and he is happy to help with all of your bike buying needs and advice in the showroom. If you see Haegan on the road, be sure to say 'hi', but if you get on his wheel, hold on for your life!

Snyder Cycles is an Atlanta based bicycle manufacturing company and bike sales and repair shop specializing in the construction of steel bicycle frames and custom, handbuilt bicycle wheels. Major brands we carry and sell are Cannondale, Scott, GT, and Schwinn bicycles. We offer service on all types of bicycles ranging from kids' bikes, downhill race bikes, triathlon bikes, fixies, hybrids, cyclocross bikes.... you get the picture.
All of the bikes we sell come with 2 months of free adjustments, and free lifetime safety checks.. If you ever have an issue with brakes, derailleurs, or basic bearing adjustments, we are here to help to make sure that the maintenance cost of your bicycle is reasonable and affordable.
Our Snyder frames come with a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. We guarantee you'll be happy with the fit of your custom or semi-custom frame or we'll build you a new one!
We operate with the goal of continually increasing quality in all of our products by collecting important data and using it to improve our standards for production. Innovation in manufacturing provides the roots for our growth, and new ideas are always being researched and tested for viability within our systems. And while new ideas lay the foundation for growth, our goals cannot be achieved without the use of the most skilled labor as we advance further and grow into Atlanta's largest bicycle manufacturing enterprise. We believe in resource conservation, quality, and efficiency as the tenets for sustainable growth in manufacturing and the bicycle industry alike.
All Snyder Cycles feature steel alloys for our frames. We strongly believe that steel provides a smoother, more compliant ride and a longer service life than other materials. Its higher modulus of elasticity and uncompromising strength than other metals provide for a lightweight and comfortable frame material that is sure to please even the most experienced riders. Steel alloys have come a long way in recent years and now provide much higher strengths which allow for much thinner and lighter tubing.
Our custom wheel selections consist of a large range of domestically produced hubs and rims, as well as many brands with their own factories overseas. We are committed to selling only the finest quality wheel components to ensure that our hard work and attention to detail does not go to waste on cheaply manufactured goods.
