In this episode I speak with Kevin Wolfson, cofounder of Firefly Bicycles - makers of beautiful, meticulously designed custom bikes. Kevin leads the company's frame design and customer experience.
Custom frame building in America is growing as avid cyclists seek deeper connections to the bikes they ride and the companies who make them. One company leading the charge is Firefly Bicycles in Boston. They're small, dialed-in, and building custom bikes for cyclists around the world.
For people like me who eat, sleep, and breathe cycling, riding a bike that was custom-built for our body (I'm gangly!) and riding style is a cycling experience superior to any other. Mass produced bikes aren't horrible, it's just that they're designed for a market of people generally sized like you. A custom frame is uniquely designed, cut, welded, and built for you. It's the closest thing to fitting like a glove as you can get in a bicycle.
