Chris DeKerf – Mini Doc

Date Jan 2, 2014

Chris DeKerf has built in the range of 5000-6000 bike frames. 25 years and he’s still at it.


After watching that, who wouldn’t want one of Chris’ bikes in their collection?

Exquisite! I am fortunate to have owned 3 Dekerf built bikes.

great video and interesting to see a guy with such solid heritage at work

one question? How have custom builders like DeKerf reacted to (and provided for) the ongoing mess that is the change in wheel sizes in the mountain bike world…

Dekerf is building Chromag's Surface 29er frames. Truelove still does the 26″ and 650B ones. As with many of the hand built guys, Dekerf probably built a 650 a decade ago – and I suspect he'd build to order for anybody who asked.

Many years ago I was lucky enough to have a DeKerf frame (Team SL). My only regret (and it's a big one) is having sold it.
