Individual frame building
Individualism is booming - no bike should look like the other. If you go beyond parts selection and painting, you quickly end up in the small but very active frame builder scene, where handmade one-offs are custom-fitted to the future owner.
But what are the advantages of such a custom frame? What options are there and what is measured at all and then implemented in the frame geometry? Experienced frame builders will introduce you to the art of body measurement, the implementation in a custom frame, effects of various geometry changes and manufacturing processes of individual bike frames. Various aspects are highlighted, from established technologies such as lugged steel frames to the complex production of carbon frames:
- Why custom frame building? With Patrick Dreier - dreiercycles.com
- Measuring in and the way to the "frame plan" (CAD). With Wim Kolb - kolb-rahmenbau.ch
- Frame building materials and the technology of joining. With Stefan Süess - sueessframeworks.com
The introduction and summary will be supervised by Röbi Stolz and the team from Bike Lovers Contest.
