It’s always exciting when a steel brand pushes the limits performance in their medium, which is why we were stoked when we got a sneak peak of The Fulton at Interbike this past September. Taking a queue from the razor industry, the engineers at Brooklyn Bicycle Co. pushed the limits of tradition and tube set design by developing the world’s first five-top tube bicycle frame. More on this after the jump.
From Ryan Zagata, President of Brooklyn Bicycle Co., “The double top tube on the Driggs & Calyer has always been tremendously popular with our customers. The more we pondered, it became apparent that we needed more top tubes and from an engineering and aesthetic perspective, five became the magic number.”
“We were both thrilled and proud to learn that nobody had previously accomplished such a feat.”
There is no comment at this time regarding the specific development steps required to produce the Fulton, but what is clear is that this model and approach to frame building is so far ahead of what’s been established that it could be years before industry is able to catch up.
