Off Road Toad was established by Rod Kirkham in 1986 out of Mountain & Beach Bicycles in Vancouver, BC.
The brand quickly gained a cult following and the frames were very sought after.
Rod quit producing the frames in 1993 and the brand has been dormant since.
After a long hiatus – we’re finally bringing the brand back using many of the pioneering designs that, while common today, were cutting edge back then – plus a few things we’ve been quietly working on.
Rod still owns Off Road Toad and although not involved with the day to day operations, is very much involved with the direction of the brand. Rod entrusted Michael Golinski and Mike Kloeppel to manufacture, market and sell the frames.
Michael’s background is as former co-owner/founder of Spot Brand and employee at Rocky Mountain, Syncros and Dekerf Cycle.
Mike’s background is as former employee at Control Tech and Raleigh USA.
Michael and Mike both wanted Toad frames back in the ’90’s and now have the opportunity to produce the Team Toad frames again, not only for themselves but for all of those other people that always lusted after owning a Toad back in the day.
