I’ve put a few hundred miles on my new custom steel frame, and I wanted to let you know it’s great! The bike is stiff enough that it really accelerates when climbing and sprinting, but is still comfortable over rough roads. You absolutely nailed the fit, which is even more impressive when you consider that I couldn’t give you any measurements from my old frame. It’s been a pleasure, and I hope to work with you again soon (possibly on a dirt road frame).
Riding this bike reminds me of the first time I used parabolic skis. It’s not my old bike wasn’t stable, but this frame just carves through tight turns so well it makes me smile every time I hit a windy patch of road. I’m looking forward to taking it up and down Palomar Mountain over the next couple of weeks.
