“The appealing, yet difficult challenge has been to fundamentally rethink but also match the beautiful logic and performance of the classic diamond frame. I have tried many times without really having the feeling that I nailed it. Then a few years back, after becoming a parent for the second time, I thought it would be fun to design a bike for my family. This somehow gave me a new kind of spark. One morning when I was trying out different ideas with my 3-dimensional steel wire hand-sketching method, it suddenly happened in a matter of minutes. The ‘dots’ connected and I had the feeling that ‘yes, this is it!’ because the asymmetric frame unites a strict and static logic with a human organic expression in a way that feels just right”, explains Anders Hermansen.
Anders Hermansen has chosen to make the frame of high quality Reynolds steel tubes because he thinks that steel is a strong, refined and precise material which has proven its attractiveness by fulfilling the demanding criteria of high performance bike frames for decades.
