Beautiful. If I could afford a custom frame I would be knocking on Carl's door up there in Bozeman tomorrow. I had the joy of meeting him a couple Thanksgiving's ago while visiting my sister. I was really impressed with the guy and he took an hour or so to talk bikes in general with me. He's a great guy with good insight. I'd recommend him above many a framebuilder. I have a friend who owns two of his frames. You can't go wrong with him.CPATCRASH said:OK, I'm now on the wait list for a Strong 29er. I ordered it this morning.
Maybe CPATCRASH is really tall and this is of no consequence.Soupboy said:Nice bike. Aesthetics aside, it seems like the upwardly-bowed TT creates an unnecessarily high standover. Inverting it - a la a Surly Instigator - would allow for a similar swoopy effect (almost an "S" when flowing into the stays) and create more SO than a straight TT.
I'm personally waiting for the new Salsa Delgado's.CPATCRASH said:Thanks. Now comes the fun of waiting the 12 to 14 weeks and collecting parts. Do you have any suggestions for rims? I'm using CK hubs and already have the cranks, chainring and cog.
