First, let me say how much I miss the Chicago cycling community. You people made the transition to Chicago MUCH easier. And much harder to leave.
Now the reason for my post, I am contemplating a custom steel ride and would like to get some advice on what to look for/avoid in this process. I am basically going to have this bike for longer rides (20, 40, 60+). I am not a small guy so I do not care about grams or ounces, but I do want a lighter bike. I am more than happy to call somebody or just have an email exchange. I appreciate any help you can provide.
And lastly, is any one Malort better than others? How is Jeppson's Malort?
So any feedback about a full Ritchey build?
Check out the crucially beautiful Humble Frameworks bikes. Made in Chicago
I would but am sadly not in CHI any more . . .
