TDN Press Wire: Custom Bicycles Handmade in Newark

Newark, once the bicycle capitol of the world, is a breeding ground for new talent and innovation. Folk Engineered helps to bring the cycling tradition back by resurrecting an ancient trade. Custom framebuilders offer something different than bike shops and department stores. Each bike is built for a specific rider and with extreme attention to detail. “Building custom handmade bicycles is a scientific art form,” Pasquariello says. “It is geometry, physics, chemistry, visual thinking, and sculpture.”

From the some of the people who brought Newark the Brick City Bike Collective, Folk Engineered builds handmade bicycles right here in Newark, USA. Bonus: they also have some great photos from their shop on their website:
