Gee thanks Russ... as if I haven't got enough to do already and now you want me to design & make bicycle parts... ;D ;D ;D

Actually I did give that some thought a couple of years ago, but I've been out of that game for so long that I'm completely out of touch with technology developments over the past 25 years or so.



Russ is correct. There is a large movement in the bicycle world to hand-built incredible craftsmanship and finishes. I guess enough of us are getting older and richer(?) to have a nostalgic desire for steel bikes. Plastic frames made in Chine might be technological masterpieces that ride better than anything ever, but a machine you throw a leg over and sweat on needs to have some humanness to it.
