NEW BOOK FEATURES ROBERTS AMONGST THE ELITE
Following on from "Made in England", Roberts Cycles has once again featured among the great marques, makers and designers of the bicycle world.
"The Elite Bicycle", a new book by Gerard Brown and Graeme Fife (Bloomsbury Sport 2013). Spanning traditional steel framebuilders, modern manufacturers and component companies, it is an eclectic mix, which ranges from one-man operations through to all but the very behemoths of the industry.
It features some of the world's greatest bicycle artisans, examining the philosophies, craftsmanship and personalities behind the brands. Chas Roberts speaks about his family's historical connections to the great British frame marques of the past and how everything that they do has a "human face" - it's the time taken to understand what each customer needs and wants, rather than obsessing about "faceless" cutting-edge technology, that is reflected in each bicycle that comes from the workshop.
