Daryl from Bandit9 has a new bike out: Hephaestus. Named after a Greek god – the bike was forged from stainless steel. We’re set to do an interview to catch up with Daryl, and find out more about this steely-eyed bike. Here’s an interview we did with Daryl last year.

“There’s very little planning in what we do. I have a rough design in my head and I don’t even put that down on paper. I just do it. Ideas are so fragile. I need to protect the original vision. But things don’t always work according to plan. We have to adapt constantly and that’s part of the process.”
