This week my guest is frame builder Nick Crumpton. We may be in the golden age of frame building thanks to the fact that some of the finest steel frames ever produced are being built today. That didn’t stop Nick Crumpton from deciding he wanted to apply his knowledge to carbon fiber.
Crumpton is one of a handful of builders who works with carbon fiber. Mostly, it is a material used by much larger manufacturers in much bigger factory settings.
With more than 10 years of experience under his built, though, Crumpton is one of a handful of builders on the planet who will produce a 100 percent custom carbon fiber frame, and he does everything, from wrapping tubes to paint and assembly in his shop.
The Pull is brought to you by the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, the world’s premiere gathering of frame builders and frame building enthusiasts. The 2020 show will take place March 20th to 22nd at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas Texas. We hope to see you there.
