just for viewing, here's a couple of my rides that have been recently recoated. Both needed minor repair, and both builders were great about the work. Walt had it turned around in a couple weeks. The curtlo was rebuilt on the same day of arrival in the mail, and took it out for an iceman nightride. The walt was rebuilt and within hours of arriving on my door, raced the Boyne Marathon race.

On the Curtlo, what is the seattube length and effective top tube length? It looks very well proportioned. I have a thing for the purity of a double diamond frame. The softtails and hardtails with the extra tube connecting the seattube to the top tube looks cluttered to me. Like on the Salsa softtails and on smaller Curtlo softtails. I understand the need for having more standover height, but asthetically I like yours very much.

What did your frame weigh approximately?

I'm with you on the looks of the connecting tube, it doesn't work for me. I'm tall, so the standover isn't an issue. The frame used to be red, fwiw. The seat tube is 23.2 inches and the top tube is 26.0 inches. Frame weight is about 5.3 lbs, but I never scaled it. As built in the blue picture, it's about 26 lbs.

The new colors look great. You should be back to full strength with the ultimate steel bike stable in Michigan.
Here's more of that Michigan steel, just for you Mike. You're going to love that MC9....

Is that a Walt fork on the newly painted Curtlo? I see you went to disc brakes on it as well. The Quiring cross bike looks bad ass. 1x9 looks like? That is the first pic I have seen of it built up. You posted frame/fork pics over on MMBA awhile back.
