I will admit to being a bit of a serial frame swapper.
I have lost track of the number of frames I have had over the last 10 years
There have been elements of each I have liked but, in my mind, have had too many compromises for them to be perfect fit and ride wise.
Having a longer torso than leg (but still a 34'' leg) I've found frames either cramped (too short in the TT) or long enough in the TT but the stand over too high for my liking.
Sooooo .... I'm contemplating going custom
I did think of doing this a few years ago but convinced myself that the cost outweighed the compromises .
Now I feel that done right I could end up with a perfect frame and reduce the number of "other"* bikes.
I've had a chat with Curtis who were great to deal with and I plan a visit down to them.
I've spoken to 18bikes albeit some time back.
I'm looking for:
Steel but not 953!
Thoughts/Pictures of work done/suggestions all welcome.
*this is just a pipedream!
