A celebration of the creativity and craftsmanship behind 88 of the world’s most inventive makers of bicycles and their components

See Inside

Overview

Today’s cyclists are seeking increasingly custom-made bicycles as reflections of their personalities – whether a Danish-style cargo bike, a recumbent, a cyclocross trainer or a randonneur. Often working in tiny studios and workshops in hidden parts of our cities, the master craftsmen featured in these pages produce pieces that are highly personal and sought after and rarely seen.

Alphabetically presented, this richly illustrated guide to 88 of the most creative bicycle makers working today includes established names such as Achielle, Cielo Cycles and Corima and new kids on the block such as Art and Industry, Bondi Beach Cruisers and Foffa, as well as product designers (Torkel Dohmers, Marc Newson).
