from #withmyown2hands framebuilding to a sustainable short supply chain
One of the strength points of Bice is its supply chain: frame production is 100% “in house” by my own 2 hands; while the suppliers are 99% from Italy and really close to me.
A short supply chain allows me to physically get in touch with the suppliers (and create such a strong and friendly collaboration) and, above all, drastically reduce materials shipping/movement and water/CO2 footprint of frame production.
Finals steps of framebuilding such as cataphoresis treatment, liquid and powder painting are far no more than 5km from the workshop. Tubing supply and others periodical furnitures are at least 35km away from Bicebicycles workshop.
