24Pouces on here is French?
Maybe he knows some good builders, then?
An excuse for a visit to France...?

I forgot Edel Bikes:
Check out the orange filleted 29er. Mmmmmm!

Oh. :lol:
Maybe I missed that announcement 8)
You learn something new every day on retrobike!

To be honest, I think his bikes are in a totally different league to the other builders you were considering (I saw a Mercian MTB once :shock:) What's Kris' waiting list like, though...?

I never knew that, his paint work is stunning.

I'm sure you've got all angles covered (no pun intended) but I always thought some of the Solitudes had unusually steep head tube angles. Lee made for Solitude, I'm sure he's fine, just spec exactly what you want.

I'm having a custom Roberts made at the moment, not sure if Chas has built any 29er's, maybe worth a phone call (they aren't too quick on email response btw, I always phone). Columbus has the new 29er Life tubes out now, and Roberts like using Columbus..

:roll: Oh yes, you wrote that originally - Damn my reading skills :oops: :lol:

Does it HAVE to be British?
Kris at JRD in France will take on almost anything you can think of:

There's also Le Cadre:

and others.

You're super-lanky, right? Are you going to build it for extra-long cranks?

Yes super lanky but not going for long cranks. 175 is fine for me. I should have updated this really - I have settled for Edelbikes. Francois is the guy there and the deposit went down this week :D His English is superb, I love the stuff he's done already, it's right up my street, he's listened to what I am after, and the build is scheduled in for April delivery :D Can't wait.

I was wrong BTW julieracingdesign is Kris le Rouge not 24pouces :oops: :lol:

I was tempted to go with them but the waiting list was a year.
