Biking Meets Design: Richard Sachs X House Industries

Apr 22, 2014

Richard Sachs is considered nothing short of legendary in the cycling world. He’s a one-man, bicycle-building powerhouse who has been steadily mastering his craft since 1972. He meticulously builds each frame with his own hands from beginning to end, only using the finest materials and employing his experienced eye for unmatched precision. Mr. Sachs is also an avid bicycle racing and cyclo-cross enthusiast. He rides with his own Connecticut-based cyclo-cross team, and for the 2013 season, Delaware-based design studio and font foundry,  House Industries created the team’s unique graphic identities and art work. The end result is an impressive convergence of engineering and design.
