By day, Jackie Mautner is the mild-mannered production manager at Breadwinner Cycles, working alongside Tony Pereira and Ira Ryan and honing bread and butter frame building brazing and finishing skills at their secret North Portland production compound/cafe.
But after school? Jackie applies that level of craftsmanship to her side project, Untitled Cycles, a space she has been developing for her own exploration and to make room for collaborations. Coming at cycling and building frames from the perspective of a fine artist and architect (as well as with the experimental flare of a hardcourt bike polo enthusiast), Jackie is not burdened by having to adhere to dominant narratives within cycling that often put a given bicycle style or type in a rigidly defined box.
As a result, Jackie’s bikes are really fun to look at and absorb. She plays with levels of fidelity in the holistic structure of the frame, creating moments to appreciate from the dropout and joint level to bilaminate and structural themes that pull lines and detail across the entire frame and bike. Sounds vague? Good. You should be listening to Jackie describe it anyway.
And with that, meet the second builder headed to the Philadelphia Bike Expo as part of the PBExSRAM Framebuilder Inclusivity Scholarship: Jackie Mautner.
She’s the new kid in town.
