Autumn Frameworks value time, we think of ourselves as merchants in it.
Yes, we sell you our time but we are in the unique position to sell you the time of many others as well. Many of our skills in frame-building were inherited, passed on from others with lifetimes of experience. Each frame that leaves our shop carries with it a unique mix of peoples’ time; from the bike fitter to the lug caster, tube manufacturer or painter, to those that perfected the flux or the filler rod and myriad other professions, each with a lifetime’s experience of their own.
We know that when done properly this time invested provides a platform or tool for you, the rider, to invest time, memories and experiences of your own. That is what Autumn Frameworks exists to do.
We hope that when we next see one of our frames it bears the marks of times passing. We hand them to you shiny and new: something completely unique. Our unwritten contract with you is that you will expose the frame to all the vagaries of time, and we expect all the changes that come with it.
We hope that what once gleamed will become dull, what once was smooth will chip and what once was as straight as a die will become ever so slightly skewed. We view each scrape, scuff, chip and dent as a reassurance that we did our job well.An object made of and for time.
