A reader tipped us to Freeman Transport, hand-built, steel S&S frames:
We are hand-building bikes here in Missoula, Montana. All steel with S and S couplings. The frames break in half and fit into a bag. They can be checked on airplanes with no extra charge. One simple tool to put them back together. Ride to and from the airport. We designed these bikes for leaving the mountains to get some culture and hang with our friends in the city. Right now we are only making fixed gears. No brakes, No cables, No mess. Bikes come with a bag for travel. We’ll also make some product.
Freeman Transport is working in a niche and using blogs and social media to market to it. Very nice.
