Here's an intriguing video from US bespoke carbon bike makers, Cryptic Cycles, winner of best new builder at the 2016 North American Handbuilt Bike Show.

Called Décryptø, the short video shows the Mission Viejo, California-based brand's founder, Kevin Fickling, working on the carbon fibre tubes that go to make the bike's frame - pretty much anything that can be done in-house is done in-house - plus the finished bike being taken out for a spin.

The six and a half minute video was directed, filmed and edited by Scott Nicholls and produced by Sickboat Creative Studios.
