Despite TV’s focus on the motorcycle craze, a number of folks pour their souls into building bikes of the human-powered variety. This video tells the story of Ricky Feature, a British bespoke bike builder who “started with little more than basic materials and rudimentary tools such as a file and torch” and proceeded, driven by his own “personal perfectionism,” to establish “an impressive reputation for his handcrafted bicycle frames.”

For what it’s worth, if I had zillions of dollars to spend on a bespoke product, I’d visit a guy like this instead of heading to¬†Savile Row.

Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to spend some quality time in the shop!

    Inspiring to see someone such as Ricky Feather not letting lack of hi-tech tools stand in his way to create finely crafted frames. Thanks for sharing!
