Thomas at Horse Cycles has been cranking away at the Urban Tour Project in his Brooklyn framebuilding shop. Local photographer Nate Mumford swung by to document the production. Head on over to the Horse Flickr for more!
Thomas from Horse Cycles has been working on his new sub-brand Urban Tour for well over a year. Marketed towards, you guessed it, urban portage on a bike. Urban Tour has products to fit every budget from caps to stems and complete bikes.
Thomas from Horse Cycles has come a long way since his first track frame. It was about 5 years ago when I met him and in that time, he’s gone on to build touring bikes, road and townies. His new shop, located in Bushwick carries its own character. With rent prices through the roof, builders are forced to deal with tight, cramped quarters.
There’s more in store for Horse Cycles these next few months, with a new storefront planned and a complete city bike package, Thomas is going to have a busy winter. I caught up with him before I left for Philly, for the Bike Expo to see what he’s been up to. Check out more photos of his workshop below.
