I'm pretty sure it'll never be this clean again!
Do you mind me asking in what price range these frames are (PM me please if you don't want to openly adress my question)
I was involved in an accident recently and it totalled my CAAD1. It left me rather banged up as well and it gave me plenty of time to think about what the CAAD's successor will be. I decided on a steel road frame with discs and shimano alfine11 (and some other neat tricks as well)
I've come across State Bicycle Co, which seems like a really good deal, but geometry wise a bit akward. it would need to have disc tabs retrofitted though.
Anyways, this is a super clean build
No gears needed in London
There seem sto be a real resurgence in custom bike sin the UK at the moment and there are more fine builders around now that at any other time in the last 10-15 years.
People are really starting to appreciate the qualities of steel and aluminium frames custom made to sit them. Not knocking carbon, this is WW afterall, people like Berk, Argonaut, Parlee and Crumpton are doing is really pushing the boundaries in that field but a well built steel or aluminium frame can be a great alternative.
I hope you enjoy the bike, it looks great.
MTB wheels look daft (to me) on 59cm+ frames
