We’ve had a few US-based guys talk to us about the custom frames they put out, and so far we’ve loved what we’v seen. Hopefully it’s inspired some of you to go and purchase some of these frames yourselves and support the rider-owned and operated scene that these guys have created for the custom frame market. For this week’s interview, we go across the Atlantic to Patrick Banks, one of the UK’s finest custom frame builder. We hope this helps to cater to our audience from around the world, while showcasing another frame building legend. Click through to peep the full interview and some photos of the frames.
We’re launching a new feature on the site called “DIY”. We want to showcase your original modifications, custom parts and bespoke designs. If you have something creative that you think we should feature on the site, upload your photo on to Instagram with the tag #DIYTHEMERGED and we’ll chose a handful to document on the site.
It could be anything from home made hub guards and custom paint jobs, all the way to a fully CNC’d one-off stems or sprockets. We’re looking forward to seeing some real originality and creativity in what you guys come up with!!
