Of the many builders I’ve met over the years, I don’t think I’ve met any with a more unusual background. Bryan Hollingsworth is a New Englander who cut his teeth working for Seven Cycles. He may be the only builder I’ve ever met who has fabricated frames from carbon fiber, titanium and steel. I’m reasonably convinced I’ve not met another builder who has laid up an entire carbon fiber frame as well as brazed steel in lugs or done fillet brazing.
It turns out, he comes from a family of cyclists and makers. That he should become a frame builder is no great surprise. Hollingsworth has been out on his own 10 years, which is a significant mark for a frame builder; few make it past five years.
