There are a few custom frame builders who’s work I ogle over on a daily basis when I check Instagram, and Patrick Banks of Limit Fabrications is one of them. Patrick and Limit are the subjects of the latest in the series of interviews The Merged is doing with custom frame builders. Give it a read HERE and learn what sets this UK frame builder apart from the rest.
I’m a huge fan of custom frame builders. I look at it like an art much like building trails. Every builder has their own signature style that comes across in each frame that they build, much in the same way that every trail builder has their own unique way of building a jump. When you get old like me and have been riding as long as I have you start to get picky with your bikes. On one hand it’s being picky, on the other it’s just knowing what you like. Having a cable guide in just the right spot so that you don’t have to use a zip tie may not seem like a big deal to most but it’s a deal breaker for me. I’ve been admiring Pat Banks’ work with Limit Fabrications on Instagram for some time now. Red Bull put together this look into his operation, and after watching it my level of respect for his work has only gone up.
