Maybe a new name to some of you guys, but, especially for any of you guys in the nyc area, I suggest you hit him up. I feel like I got a great deal for this frame. My new travel/do it all/all arounder/ground gravel/occasional tourer/everything else bike.
JUst picked it up yesterday, will post pics of it built up soon but here's the frameset for now.

Yes!! So good. He's working on one for me ... Can't wait!

Is that a painted X2 or did Rick make you the stem?

Nice, very nice. That's got about every extra you can think of!

I can't stop reading that as "Rick James", though!

thanks guys! And yea, every time I say RICK JONES I say it like RICK JAMES BITCH! Pricing is really great for a custom and he was awesome to work with. Check him out http://rickjonesbicycles.com

Partially built up and it's gonna be pretty and functional and lots of MIUSA goodies. I'll hopefully update by the weekend with built up photos.

finished up my Rick Jones today and took it for the maiden voyage. It feels fantastic. Basically just built it up exactly as per the bikecad drawing and the fit feels great. I'm a happy camper.

White Industries 50/34 crankset with 8 speed era m950 XTR derailleurs and Dura Ace 7800 downtube shifters surprisingly play very nicely together (once I changed the high limit screw on the front derailleur). I'm tempted to use a long cage RD to make up for the 16 tooth difference but I'll probably leave it as is. I'd never had a bike with canti brakes before so had to learn how to do that today but they work great once I got them set up. Tires are Challenge Paris-Roubaix 27c which feel great and look even better. I eventually want to relace the White Ind. hubs to some A23 rims but these will do for now. Only thing that bugs me is the mismatch between the soft matte ano finish on the Paul components and the polished White Ind. bits/couplers/CK headset.
Weighs in just over 20 lbs as pictured.
