Rasmus Gjesing founded Cykelmageren in 1994 by opening a shop in Copenhagen. After a 6 months period of time doing only reparations on bikes with a mainstream look and in bad quality, he got inspired and began building and selling bikes in own design. He wished to break new ground by creating a unique product that was made to last and through out the history of the company this has been the basic idea of the concept. The demand for handmade bikes made expand naturally needed. From thereon the company developed into being a team of innovative quality- enthusiasts, all taking turns building the bikes at the workshop in the north of the city.
A Cykelmageren handmade bike is individually ordered and build regarding every costumers needs and wishes and the aim for flexibility and special adjustment is good. When you as a costumer at Cykelmageren want to place an order for a bike, inspiration can be found here on website or in the showroom where different colour-combinations, frames and extras are shown. The confirmation of any orders is done through email-correspondence or in the shops. The estimated time of building each bike is 4-6 weeks. During this period of time it is possible to follow the course of building by contacting the workshop.
