The Beauty and Functionality of a Handmade Bicycle

The handmade bicycle, the beauty of a handmade bicycle in an age of "pre fab one size fits all" is simply that the decisions are in our hands. First and foremost, we get to decide how the bicycle will fit the rider, as opposed to fitting an already existing bike to your body. Quoting Jamie Swan: “The human body has not evolved to fit the bicycle. We need to be to be able to alter the geometry's as we see fit."
