I wanted to be in the frame building business since I was a teenager. First bicycle I owned was the first custom project. After my father gave me his bicycle I took it apart and replaced everything I could. New bars, singlespeed, removed the extra parts that I didn’t need, made it light although is was a russian steel frame, built like a tank.
Long story short, few years later I graduated as a welding engineer, and moved to Denmark where I became a certified welder and I started a small workshop where I make handcrafted urban bicycles.

From the maintenance point of view I chose Gates Carbon Drive as the main transmission for my bicycles because, in the city, for commuting or just simple riding you need and efficient system that is not going to fail when you need it the most.
