Since 1994, David Bohm has earned a reputation for creating some of the most beautiful, custom steel bicycle frames in the world. Cyclists seek him looking for a unique, exquisitely crafted bicycle that they’ll be proud to own and love to ride.
In collaboration with Fairwheel Bikes and KVA David Bohm has created a road frame, utilizing KVA’s new stainless steel tubeset. The weight of the frame came in slightly over 3lbs, with the complete bike weighing just 13.5lbs – one of the lightest steel builds we’ve seen.
Bohm’s design contains keen aesthetic themes such as Art Deco inspired lugs, Egyptian influenced color, and unique materials not generally seen in frame construction. Palladium Leaf, Gold, Mother of Pearl and shell inlay, as well as raw Silver are just some of the exotic adornments making this bike a one of a kind creation.
The pigment for the paint was created using hand-mixed and ground Lapis Lazuli, the rare rock found in Afghanistan.
The exceptional qualities of the bike don’t end with decoration. Bohm is a master at construction, custom making the lugs to meet the intentions of his forms. His custom made seat-post and stems further enhance the custom and unqiue look of the bike. In fact, aside from a few small items, the frame is entirely built with hand created elements, using as little pre-existing components as possible.
