Baum
It will fit
It will always be unique and never 'the previous model'
It will ride exactly as you want it to
It is made for you by hand
I got one for my 45th. Have never had a reason to buy something 'newer' to replace it

What about a Saffron?
Even more unique as a Baum.

Anyway, I would go for custom made high-end steel or titanium.

Curious to know if the OP has made a decision on this one...and if so, what was the outcome?!
