I think that Robin Mather frame is just perfect (well, a bit smaller and in "Platsa Blue" of course). I like the wishbone seatstays and (especially) the "through-the top-tube" brake hose routing. Really clean and tidy.

I'm sure he'd build one with Paragon sliders rather than an EBB (but then you'd lose those beautifully sculpted dropouts), either would do for me but just not track ends - I like to be able to drop the wheel out without a lot of faffing.

He's not taking orders at the minute though - much to my wife's relief, I'm sure.....

Rourke's are a top builder, but mostly known for their road and track bikes.
