The North American Handmade Bicycle Show is just around the corner, and frame builders from all around the world will begin to make the journey to Connecticut very soon. But when NAHBS is over, how will you find them? Sure, a number of frame builders have such a reputation that they’re easy to find, but others can be a little more obscure.
That’s why The Frame Builders are putting together a comprehensive list with an interactive map. Their goal is to create a database that lists all the bicycle craftsmen and craftswomen so that their potential customers can easily track them down.
Split into the interactive map and the complete list, the map can be filtered with the drop down menu to only include builders who specialized in a certain material like carbon or titanium. But it can also be used to find all of the frame building schools if you want to learn for yourself.
At this point, the database is far from complete, but The Frame Builders hope that it can be completed with your help. Any frame builders who want to be included in the list should contact The Frame Builders with their info to put their stamp on the map.
