In a world of mass produced and increasingly affordable items, Oscar Wilde once said that:
"a cynic is a man that knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing"
So have we really moved on since the 19th century when Birmingham and Coventry had the highest concentration of bicycle and associated parts manufacturers in the world?
Some people have to have an individual frame made just to get one that fits. The big manufactures don’t really caterer for short or tall riders or limit their choice to a bland mid-price point model. Others choose to have a frame made, because it’s different, unique, personal, something to be cherished and enjoyed, a frame to fit like a well made suit, dress or pair of handmade shoes. It can be made just as you would like it to look and perform and to reflect your personality.
