eric said, "Not to long ago I built up a new road frame (the Thin Iggy)to work through a couple of ideas I had, both in material selection and finish. "

This triggered a few questions

1. When you were trying things out, what ride qualities made the final product "it" or right to you? I mean, your vision of how this bike should ride is most certainly different from how another framebuilder's vision would be. So what made the final product "right" to you?

2. Given #1, is there a consistency between your bikes? Like they should all have that jump when putting the pedal down or whatever it might be..

3. I realize that each customer is different and has slight differences in their requests. How does a frame builder know how their final product's ride matches their customer's ride wishes without actually riding it himself?

Love that FU bike, btw.
