I did think about Baum until the expense kicked in.

I ended up going steel via John Caletti in Santa Cruz

NICE! I LOVE bikes inspired by art/artists/paintings. I remember seeing the la vie claire look mondrian bikes in person and falling in love with cycling at that moment. For the first time, I realized that in cycling, there is an incredibly symbiotic connection between art/style/fashion and sport.

I can't wait to see more!

cheers.

Thanks for the welcome and the comments! I started this build back in July 11 but had been thinking about for way longer. As it would be custom geometry I decided to got to a bike fitter - it was worth the couple of hundred $.

The builder was also kind enough to send over some 'work in progress' photos:

A proper fitting is *always* worth the extra £ / $ - especially if he advises against a massive drop that's not sustainable!

@ Rich-Ti, couldn't think of anything worse! A fitter who suggested such wouldn't be worth the $.

@andyindo, I've taken delivery and it's been built-up. Just need to change the bar tape then I'll provide some pics and a build list with weights :)

After John welded the frame he sent it over to Mark at Spectrum for the paint. John took these photos and sent them prior to shipping the bike:

Whoa. The detailed brush strokes are amazing. This is truly one-of-a-kind.

The brush strokes look really cool in cold steel.

Here is a pre-build photo:
