Our connection to the brand
We have had the distinct honor of hosting Cherubim in our booth at NAHBS 2018 and 2019, proudly presenting some of their award-winning bikes and collaborating on others. Blacksmith founder Michael Yakubowicz even visited the Cherubim workshop in 2017 to discuss design and production of Cherubim's first all-road model, Mike's very own Care Bear Camo.
