How Donhou Bicycles came to be…

We were honoured to have our speed bike on display at the Design Museum in London as part of their Cycle Revolution exhibition earlier this year. As part of the show the Design Museum commissioned a short film, explaining a little bit about how Donhou Bicycles came to be – as well as what possessed us to try and make a bike that could go 100 miles per hour on the flat. If you missed the exhibit itself, be sure to give the video a watch.

From the factory visits in Kathmandu to the search for Chyangra goats in the Mustang Region of the Himalayas, they traced an age-old cashmere supply chain on two wheels.

It’s hard to define one single motivator for this assembly of friends to courageously ride around Nepal’s vast landscapes and Kathmandu’s bustling streets. But oddly enough, the main inspiration behind this rugged and remote adventure was cashmere. The goal was to visit the knitting and weaving factories in the bustling city of Kathmandu, and then follow the figurative thread of cashmere fiber to its source – goats raised in the high-altitude Mustang Region mountains.
