WE DIDN’T REINVENT THE WHEEL
– we simply improved it.
Sometimes you have think out of the box to keep the good things that already exist. When we designed Nostalhy we wanted to make something that already existed even better. This is our take on a bicycle that is so simply that anyone can use it – today or in twenty years.
Herskind+Herskind focuses on a meticulous design and good craftsmanship. Therefore, every detail on the bicycle has been considered and every bicycle is hand-built from scratch. The frame is formed with CR-MO tubes that are considerably stronger than normal steel, while remaining light in weight. As all frames formed by hand it means that every bicycle is adjusted to fit the cyclist’s height. This means that when you order a bicycle from Herskind-Herskind we build it for you personally.
Herskind+Herskind have designed a unique chain protector. The chain protector is special aesthetically due to its minimalistic design and clean lines. It curves along the chain discretely without the disturbing the eye. In an almost invisible way this details once again emphasises Herskind’s thorough design process.
Every bicycle is equipped with head- and rear lights that automatically turn on due to light sensors. The lights run on pedal power.
Herskind+Herskind aim at working with the best suppliers of the components we do not produce in our own factory. Therefore, all bicycles are equipped with a Brooks™ leather seat which combines a comfortable design with high quality materials. Additionally, all handlebars are also produced in leather to give the cyclist a comfortable grip.
