The idea of Korte Jan
By cutting an old and good frame into pieces and welding it together again, we can get a frame with some very specific driving characteristics.
A small, wax and agile bike with a large load capacity. It is perfect for us who live in the city.
Very inspired by the classic "Short John" but still very different.
The frame is built from 90% recycled material but all wearing parts are new. And it's all done in Copenhagen.
It means a lot to us that we take care of the whole process ourselves. We must be on target for our own production and not just resell something from a remote assembly line.
It provides pride, local jobs and then it is very environmentally friendly.
Frame and lacquer
Do you have a 26 "steel mountain bike that has served its military service as a MTB?
If so, we can rebuild your old frame into a "Short Jan" frame and build the bike as you wish.
Come by with your old iron horse and let's talk about the possibilities. It's neither cheaper nor more expensive - the result will be just a bike with extra history and soul.
