Sad news to start the new year with (and Im a bit late with this one), but I recently found out that Ernest Csuka, builder of many, many a fine bicycle, died at 81. Mr. Csuka was in charge of Alex Singer, a bespoke bicycle brand based in Levellois, North West Paris. With him passed a legacy, as he was the last of the great French constructeurs (that I know of at least). It is believed that his son will continue to keep the shop and production of Alex Singer Cycles going (which I believe he has been for a while already). I hope so, it’s my dream to own one of these bikes one day.
