My collection of old danish handmade bike frames. Banani has stopped production. Schrøder is now over 100 years old and still going. In their day they were world renowned companies. Today as all is basically carbon from china the need for handmade steel frames is not so high. So time is running out??
An interesting book about Schrøder bikes
At some point steel frames will return as the world will turn away from hydrocarbon based products and endorse more environmentally friendly solutions. A steel frame is also more readily repairable. Today everything has to be reusable. And as everything is becoming electric weight is not a problem.
