So how would you differentiate say a GT Timberline with a Psyclone? Both it would seem are hand built and neither are custom made for a particular customer. :?

Quality of tubing and TIG welded vs Fillet brazed. Similar to many production bikes some just had a particular "name" welders hands on the torch.

About the same then as a Ritchey Outback and an Ultra.
