Made in England

This is a project that I’m really excited about. Frame builders Matthew Sowter and Ricky Feather have got together to produce a book about the Artisans behind the craft of hand-built bicycles in England. Both framebuilders have won best frame awards at Bespoked Bristol so definately know what they are talking about.

The book features some great photography by Kayti Peschke who along with Matthew and Ricky travelled the country to interview England’s leading frame builders who share their passion, skills and even quirks. I think it’s going to make for an interesting read!

The book is available for pre-order now and the first 400 copies will have a personal message from the authors along with their signatures. Available for £35, it’s 200 pages long and weighs in at a whopping 1.6kg. You can now order on the site and it will be available at the end of October. You can also find out a bit more about the project on the homepage.

I’m really behind this project, in England we have a big history in frame building and bicycle manufacturing and it’s something we can certainly be proud of, just take a look at Bespoked Bristol this year. What a cracker!

Someone who has been in the industry for a fairly long time now is Dave Yates who started building frames in 1977. Matthew has kindly sent us a few previously unseen photos and you can also see inside Dave Yates chapter, just click the read more button.
