Many people believe the only way to find a new bike is by purchasing one from a bicycle shop or a mass-production bicycle warehouse. In fact, there are many quality custom and handcrafted bicycle framebuilders in the world. Ordering your next bicycle from a framebuilder will not only allow you to choose a unique frame design and individualized fit, but will also result in a sturdy bike and the satisfaction of helping a small business grow.
This map was created to not only allow the public to discover our handcrafted bicycle frames, but also to help connect our growing family of international framebuilders and framebuilding schools. Globally, framebuilders utilize a variety of techniques, including fillet-brazed, TIG welded, and lugged frames; and materials such as steel, titanium, carbon fiber, and even bamboo. As masters of handmade craft, we are pioneers in our field and encourage the growth and development of framebuilders worldwide.
