Ares Bikes History
The idea behind Ares Bikes developed in 1998. Back then York Uno wanted to found a flatland company and was in search of investors. Katsu Sera came on board and supported York with his own money. By the way he's responsible for the name of the company. You just have to switch the letters.
Finally in 1999 Katsu, Kenji, York and Funfancy started Ares Bykes seriously. This was only possible because York won after some failures a flatland contest in the USA.
Meanwhile there's a subcompany besides Ares named Arestic, This company sells most of the parts from Ares like pegs, seapclamps, sprockets or cranks.
Unfortunately the parts from Ares Bykes are limited in europe and hard to get. So if you have the chance to get those parts you should grab them ;-). Seriously the quality of those parts are stunning. The frames are usually made compact and suitable from smaller riders. The products are characterized by their attention to details, innovative designs and weight savings. So if your looking for something unusual, you shoud grab some parts from Ares Bikes!
