Handbuilt Bicycles

posted by DL Byron on March 05, 2006

In our global economy, with mass production, and consumerism, you’d probably be surprised to know that the handbuilt bicycle industry is thriving. I train, ride, and tour on a Davidson and I’m having another one built specifically for traveling. The main benefit of a handbuilt, custom bike is the fit and riding a bike that’s built for you, but more importantly it’s that they’re built by artists, with personal touches, and spec’d with parts to make the bike bombproof, incredibly light, or a mix of both.

My new Davidson will be built to the same dimensions as my rain/touring bike, but lighter without fenders, and newer components. For more on handbuilt bicycles, see the coverage of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show by Cycling News.
