Here are some photographs I made on meeting Tom at Demon Frameworks down in Southampton a few years ago. Like the way cycling so often is, we became good friends after a routine work meeting. Cycling's good like that.

Tom is a genuine artist of frame building. His home made lugs alone are something else.

I've put the feature that I did for the magazine in America up on my site here if you fancy a read. But photographs follow..:

Thanks for looking.

I follow him on Instagram and i have to say, he just makes some of the most beautiful frames I have ever seen! I don't think anyone comes close to him at the moment! Not even Richard Sachs.

As you said, his lugs alone are pure art, purely gorgeous. If i only had the money to afford a frame made by him..
