I ride both aluminum and carbon frames, so having a steel one would round out my bikes for me. I've heard good things about Dave's work.


I've ridden Alloy and carbon since the mid 90's, and I am now having a great time trying (and owning) some hand made British Steel. There really is nothing like it.

Look at, Dave Yates, Chas Roberts and don't forget Brian & Jason Rourke. Those are some of the bigger names, but there are plenty of others.

I am picking up my (s/h) Yates 853 this week. Needless to say, can't wait for the weekend.
