From The Ground Up: Borne from the ambition to design and build bikes for individual riders, rather than a one-size-fits-all bike for the masses, the bespoke cycle industry centres around the passion and craftsmanship of people like Paul Burford and Tam Hamilton, who are Burf and Tam Racing Fabrications. As they put it, “Two guys with a dream, in a shed…and it’s actually happening.” Read more on the ShAFF website.
