A hand built Danish bicycle company. They have several standard bicycles, but I am an unusual size so I had a custom frame built about ten years ago. I have a normal dutch bike for getting around and errands, but my special bike is a single speed with no brakes built just for letting my hair try and catch me. The fit and spirit are perfect. She was stolen two years after I bought her. Her damaged frame was found in an alley as her size is so odd. I had some insurance, but not nearly enough as custom bikes are very expensive. They also take a long time to build. The shop built me a new frame at no cost and my insurance covered the new components. It was ready in two weeks. They explained their work has a lifetime warranty and I was still alive. I have sent several people there, but the backlog on custom bikes is years deep now.
