    Argos cycles in Bristol build frames to order as well as repairs, resprays etc. I can’t say how good they are at designing them, but the workmanship is pretty good, they put a rear disc mount and brace on my frame and the joins don’t show, it looks like it was made that way.

    Brant, is that Kev Winter your’e on about? He built mine when he was at Fleet Engineers. Last I heard he was building for Donohues’s in Bishop Auckland, but that was a bit since.

    I phoned around quite a few builders, both here and in the US and the one I made best/easiest contact with was Justin Burls.

    All the others either away on holiday, didn’t return messages, emails, or did not do custom builds, or were too expensive – which is most of the US frame builders.

    The Wolfhound (US) looks brilliant but would work out to close on £2K – for a steel frame!

    So, Burls has supplied a few ti 29er’s although his main thing now is ti road frames, all made in Russia.

    Here is a drawing he has made

    Since then I am leaning to the side of steel as I think this might be the the material with the most compliance and alive feel – more soul

    I have found a local frame builder looking into a similar full Reynolds 853 design…
