Si sono viste biciclette lasciarsi morire sulla tomba del padrone. Man sah Fahrräder, die sich auf dem Grab des Besitzers sterben liessen. On a vu des vélos se laisser mourir sur le tombeau du maître.

UK frame builders

Builders & Partners

The Rapha Continental was established in the United States in 2007 with the aim of rediscovering the lost spirit of cycling. To help realise that ambition, the Rapha Continental joined forces with some of the finest independent frame builders in North America.
The result was a collection of custom bikes [ Ira RyanTony PereiraSycipDavidsonSignalRick HunterLyonsportRichard SachsBilenkySeven CyclesCircle-AIndependent Fabricationand Igleheart ] that reflected the craft and heritage of America’s framebuilders but was also versatile enough to handle the wide range of terrain the Continental riders would encounter. Meticulously designed and entirely hand built, they combined technology and innovation with individuality and flair, creating elegant, understated bikes that handled beautifully and performed brilliantly.
As the Rapha Continental continues to expand, Rapha will be collaborating with some of the best bespoke frame builders in each Continental territory. We start in the UK, with Ricky Feather,Dave YatesTom DonhouRourke Cycles and Robin Mather.
Ci sarebbe da aggiungere: quando l'industria ciclistica italiana capirà il valore del fatto a mano?
