The One Thing That’ll Last A Life­time

Bicycling (South Africa) - - INSIDE - STAN EN­GEL­BRECHT / 41 / OR­GAN­ISER OF THE TOUR OF ARA, PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

Stan En­gel­brecht chats to us about the come­back of… steel­frame bikes!

Steel bi­cy­cles are el­e­gant. They ride dif­fer­ently to harsh alu­minium or noisy car­bon. In their lines, an­gles and pro­files they re­veal a homage to the ear­li­est two- wheeled pedal-pow­ered ex­per­i­ments that be­came the bi­cy­cle as we know it to­day.

Steel bi­cy­cles are in­vest­ments in rid­ing and ad­ven­ture that last for more than a few years – most of­ten, they last for life. They are not re­placed when­ever a newer model comes along. They are re­pairable, strong, and you can re­paint them on a whim, giv­ing your frame a new lease on life.

And you can have one cus­tom-built right here in South Africa.
