Hand Made Bicycles

What is a Foresta? Foresta Frames are a unique blend of classic geometry, racing bicycle history, modern materials, and superb craftsmanship. While my work contains beautiful lugwork and precision assembly, it's the bicycle's geometry and sense of unity which makes it "right." A bicycle is more than tubes and fancy paintwork, it's a vehicle meant to perform a task.
John Sotherland, Master framebuilder, has built nearly 5,000 framesets including custom designed bicycles for national and world champion riders. Each hand-crafted bicycle begins with a custom fitting and design for the rider. The frame is constructed from chomoly tubing and Henry James Lugs. It is then silver brazed with all American made materials.
NAHBS 2013 was great. Thanks Denver! Lots of press out there that I still need to track down and read. See you all at NAHBS Denver. Booth 1116 Shamrocks in the Wild http://www.dirtragmag.com/webrag/handmade-bikes-wild-shamrock-cycles
