Our Engineering experience has been utilized in many diverse projects, including

We produceinnovative products that fill a need that is not being handled by existing products or solutions

In addition, we provide engineering services to other companies that are looking for solutions outside their realm of expertise. This includes product design and development as well as trackside engineering services.

Therapy Components founder and chief engineer, Brian Berthold, brings over 30 years of experience in design and engineering, as well as practical mechanical and machining experience. In addition, hands on racing of cars, motorcycles and bicycles has provided a complimentary experience that has been invaluable in understanding the needs and wants of customers.

Our home base  is located on over 100 acres of rolling, old growth hardwood forest in south central Indiana, providing an excellent test environment and proving ground for all products and engineering. The founder can be seen daily riding on the miles of trails, personally testing every bicycle product we make, which are also tested and used by some of the best riders in the world. Future plans include a Midwest Bike and Music festival, as well as local mountain bike races to be held on the property, in an effort to further reach our customers, and share the enjoyment of bicycles.
