Wandertec Custom Touring Frames

by Josh Lipton

After several months of practicing and gradual effort, I’ve nearly completed building a custom touring frame. In the months ahead I will be building bike frames to replace all of my current bicycles as well as outfitting my family and friends with custom bicycles. I’ve been working together with my friend Joe Murray of VooDoo Cycles. He has been lending a hand with tools and skills as this new project gets underway.

The goal is to begin offering custom frames through Wandertec sometime in the future. I am interested in building touring specific road and mountain bikes. I am also interested in bikes specifically suited to work with bike racks and/or bike trailers, possibly even with racks integrated into the frame. I’ve been dreaming of a frame with a bike trailer somehow more closely integrated into the frame, to allow for a lighter, yet stronger trailer with better handling characteristics. This would likely be a very specific expedition style rig designed specifically for long bike tours but perhaps not having multi-use appeal.

Check back for pictures of new frames in the coming months!
