Thirty years ago and for the best part of a century before it was almost steel or nothing for your bicycle frame. There was no other real choice nor was there any need for anything else as steel did everything asked of it with aplomb. Then came aluminium, closely followed of course by the now ubiquitous carbon fibre. Steel lost favour, not because it wasn’t a good material anymore or a viable alternative to the more exotic options available, it simply became unfashionable. Thankfully there were those who never lost faith in steel and steel tube producers worked hard to improve the alloys to give ever lighter, stronger and better tubing.

Today steel is real once more, it’s back in fashion and we say hallelujah to that! The finest steel frame tubes are now light years away from steel tubes of old and the differences are astounding, making steel a genuine option for anyone wanting a bike that is simply a joy to ride. A steel frame has a ride and character that can only be steel, a certain ‘zing’ that is so difficult to articulate but is there nonetheless. It is comfortable too, similar to titanium in that respect. Steel is durable, it is strong, it tends to bend on impact rather than ‘snap’, it is easy to repair in the event of a crash and it is very easy to customise. Today the best steel tubes are also light; not as light as tubes made of composite materials, but light enough to be worthy of consideration when every other benefit is added to the mix.

Just try a steel frame, we think you will love it.

... That is Columbus XCR and welding is not easy, titanium is far easier to weld. XCR is very tricky to weld because it is so thin... Welding XCR is like welding paper, its' hard to source  as it has become very popular. It's extraordinarily hard to produce but it's worth the effort.

Masterji pa res niso nekakšen presežek kar se lepote/lakiranja tiče... je pa res, da res unikatno, kompleksno barvanje/lakiranje jeklenkota stane skoraj toliko kot sam okvir Masterja... mežik

In recent years with the advent of new composite materials it seemed that the days were numbered for the traditional handmade bicycle frame. Thankfully however this has proved not to be the case and metal frames simply went out of fashion for a while. Now there has been a huge upsurge in interest in traditional frame design and materials with both steel and titanium enjoying a real renaissance. A whole new generation of bike riders are experiencing and enjoying he wonderful ride qualities of metal bike frames and long may this be so. Although modern composites are likely to dominate the market for years to come, I am confident that there will always be a place for the classical, handcrafted bicycle frame.
