THANKS FOR STOPPING BY! I WOULD LOVE TO BUILD YOU A CUSTOM BICYCLE.
Years ago, the nickname “Kruch” was convenient for folks who wanted to pass me the puck, or throw me the Lacrosse ball. It stuck, a derivative of my last name - Kruchkowski. My full name is Corey Kruchkowski, but “Kruch” works too.
I love all the various permutations of cycling, and as I learn more I continue to be fascinated by how deep it all goes. In each case though, person + machine = freedom, a delightful equation. Gravel, MTB, Touring, Road - the possibilities are endless.
A dear friend told me once that being an artist is about, among others things, “seeking connection” and “taking responsibility”. I consider the bicycles I build art, art that is done collaboratively with the people that place their trust in my ability. Art that is useful, high quality, and meaningful.
Procuring a KRUCH frame is an experience. From the first inquiry, to the interactive design, to the execution and finally delivery - it is me and you working together on something special. Hopefully we can go for a ride together someday too.
Corey aka KRUCH
