The Dutch are known for their very practical and somewhat klunky bikes with fenders, but they know how to build slinky race bikes, too, and have a rich history of race bikes.

Rih Bicycles -- named for a fictional race stallion -- was started in 1921. One time apprentice Wim van der Kaaij continues the business of creating road and track bikes under the name RIH Sport.

In this video, you can watch van der Kaaij braze, filet, bend, cut, grind and assemble a new steel frame.
