Maybe of interest: the frame geometry of the V3 frame.

Absolutely lovely bike. A custom frame from Rob is definitely on my wishlist in the next few years. I particularly like the carbon ISP he’s done on yours (and others) frame. Do you find the bike retains the lively but comfortable ride steel is known for, or does the carbon ISP make it feel more like a typical carbon frame?

I’d find it very hard not to go for a full steel setup like this one he did recently:

Difficult question. I don't have two bikes that differ only in frame material (otherwise identical frame geometry and all components). I'd say that the geometry is key, then the components.
