Probably caused controversy in the title thread without intending to do so but wondering what options there are for post 98 non boutique/custom but high end steel - IF and Dekerf come easily to mind but what else?

Jamis Dragon.

One of my favourite ever frames.

Older ones seem to be like hen's teeth right now, I am on the hunt for one!

I think the curved seat tube puts it firmly in the Boutique camp, or camp boutique...

That is on my short list of bikes for my 40th next year.

I want British built, probably Reynolds 853 tubing, works with a modern 120mm fork & disc brake with the ability to have the frame tweaked from std to almost replicate my Clockwork's geometry (and most probably fillet brazed... if I can afford it...)

Most (all?) of his bikes are pure "riders" (as are his customers :wink: ). More craftmanship and style than Camp or Boutique to me.
The curved seattube is on customer request, he builds full custom.
