As of now I am building only in steel. This is mainly because steel, among other frame materials, is the most suitable for custom fabrication, and have a ride which is sought after by a lot of passionate cyclists.
Currently I am building frames by only brazing; as I think this is the most elegant and creative method as well as it is functional. The brazing techniques I use are:
- Lugged: The classical construction of steel frames.
- Fillet Brazing: The pleasing appearance of tubes seemingly flowing into each other, for lean and functional construction.
- Bilaminate: The combination of two prior techniques; the hand-cut semi-lugs fillet brazed into tubes, bring a fully customized look.
Ordering a custom frame internationally, the first thing to make sure is the “fit” to be perfect, as this is one of the main points of having a custom bike. If you already are sure of your fit with your current bike, I can design based on that without a problem. If you are not; still things are not hard either; I am always open to work with a local fitting specialist of your choice or with the fit data you are handed out by them.
The second part of course is the shipment of the finished frameset. I always hand it out with insurance and tracking to be on the safe side. I have experience shipping internationally too, so problems are unlikely. Even if in case, you will not be liable for any cost of damage or loss.
