I have recently been thinking about getting another custom geometry frame built, and after much deliberation, it looks like I will be going with another Tsunami. It will be an ISP frame built around a 25mm setback Ritchey seat mast topper, and at the moment I am thinking it will look something like this:

At the moment, I am trying to see if a polished and clearcoated frame is possible (no paint). The frame will be prepped so that I can use either mechanical cables/housing or internal Di2 wiring. I am planning on running my SRAM stuff on it until I decide to make the jump to Di2.
Here are a couple things that sealed my decision to go with another Tsunami:
- ISP at no extra charge
- Drilling the frame for internal Di2 wiring for no extra charge
- Very reasonable cost for a custom geometry frame
- Joe (the owner) has been experimenting on his own time with trying to see if he can get a nice looking brushed finish to work on his frames. In fact, he said he just ordered a polishing kit because he wasn't happy with the looks after attempting a brushed finish so he wants to see if the polishing kit will help. He has also been answering all my questions in a very timely manner. In short, he has excellent customer service.
I am hoping to place the order sometime next week. I will update this post similar to my other build to document the process and keep everyone posted.
