My name is Matt Wilkinson, I make bicycle frames. For three years I worked as a cycle courier in London.
I started this blog when I was awarded a travelling fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. I documented my visit to the USA where I met with frame builders in nine states, and investigated the skills, equipment and techniques involved in making quality steel bike frames.
Since returning to London I’ve started to set up my workshop and have also started working as a brazer at Brompton Bicycle Ltd.
I intend to update this blog, recording my experiences as I establish myself as a bicycle frame builder.
