Von Rafael makes 100% custom bikes (handmade) and has made some pretty sweet custom TT bikes. I'd start there

If you can wait until NAHBS this year, there will be a new company launching with some seriously good aero cred... :)

Never seen any of these in the flesh but his bikes look awesome! I'm sure an aero road version would look great too

Last time i contacted Rafael it took ages before he replied. From what i understood, it seemed he was not doing that much bikes these days.
I contacted him and a few others regarding a custom built handlebar i wanted made.

Thats a shame to hear, but not too much a surprise i guess (his instagram is loaded with all kinds of things from cars to motorcycles, etc). Alchemy also makes custom aero-bikes, but without wind-tunnel data, i don't really see the point.
