Not a ww at all, but I am satisfied with it. Frame is stiff and comfortable. I use it for races too.

don't worry about the weight - it's a steel frame. I really like it; the colour and the shape of the frame loks great. Well done! :)

Hmmmm.... I look at that slammed forward saddle position and that stem length and I wonder. Maybe it's just the paint job that's custom.

It is custom, seat tube has 49 cm center-center, top tube 57.6 cm. Have you ever seen non-custom frame with this geometry? :)

Well... I've been doing this for about 25 years now and I've seen lots of custom road frames in that time. None of the ones that were properly fit/sized for their owner required that the saddle be positioned all the way forward along the rails like that. To each their own I guess...

-- Don't get me wrong, it looks really nice.

I think a non offset post would look bether, but that's the man's choice.

Yeah perhaps the builder designed the frame with a non offset post in mind.
