I majored in math and so first had the idea to use the pi symbol as a headbadge. I felt pi tied well with cycling as cycling has lots of circles and rotational motion going on. I also felt that pi invoked a certain mathematical precision, precision which I really strive for in my builds. Plus I thought the pi symbol would just make a simple and elegant headbadge.

Originally I went with Pi Cycles, instead of Radian. I could call them "picycles" and it would be cheesy and wonderful. I went with Pi Cycles for my first handful of frames but then discovered these guys. So, I changed over to Radian as I could still use the pi symbol headbadge and maintain the math-cycling tie that I liked so much. I also thought Radian Cycles sounded pretty good. Honestly though if I liked the sound of my name more I would have just stuck that on the downtube!


Cool, thanks for that. I have a geology degree, but somehow managed to end up teaching high school math and physics. Radians and trig functions are always one of the challenges for most of my students.

Props on the Columbine! I had one put on my custom too.
Thanks much! I really like the Columbine. Unfortunately I was so excited about paint I forgot to ask Eric to mask it off. That and the disc tab mounting points too, next time...

Absolutely, thanks for the question. I taught high school math too, and then a bit of community college. I really enjoyed teaching but framebuilding has been my real passion/obsession. I do foresee getting back into education though unless I can somehow manage to make a good living framebuilding...ha!

Well, the "Maker Movement" is gaining steam (pun intended) in a variety of high-level independent (i.e., "private") high schools, so if you want to get into that, your experience in design and fabrication might be a bonus to some schools. Food for thought...
