That's a beautiful stable. These all look to be in the 56-57 cm ETT range. Is that correct?

Baller bikes. Nice to see you in this side of the fence. I have enjoyed your layouts on WW.

Keep it coming!

You collect what you like, apparently. But am curious, only interest in racy road bikes? So many other ways to ride a bike, and bikes suited for those purposes. You have any other types of bikes to share? Oh, and just lovely collection you have there. Beautiful.

I was tempted to go onto gravels, mtbs even BMXes ...

However, the quest for that perfect road bike isn’t done yet! Just can’t seem to find that “sweet spot”

When I am done with that (which seems impossible) definitely onto the MTBs!

Another reason is that there aren’t many nice trails where i am from!

I understand this quest. I did it for years with fly rods and then one day i found my guy, he happens to live 30 minutes away oddly enough. now he builds my fly rods and i am always happy.

I am currently riding a very good road bike, but i am always looking for the next level in my tools of choice. So the quest continues. Its good to hear your favorites. Its very good to hear Festka is among your favorite, as they are next on my list.

In terms of materials, do you have a favorite? you certainly have a lot in steel, but then most custom builders work in steel.

My favorites are your English and Speedvagen, but then ive not ridden them yet.

The love really goes out to the English & SV if I were to be completely honest with y’all.

I love the feel of steel, where the bike tends to feel planted. instills confidence in corners & that buttery smooth feel. However, the one complaint I have for completely steel bikes (again I put in a huge disclaimer - it 90% could probably be my fault when approving the drafts of the geometries, so many other factors, etc) is that it doesn’t seem to have that snappiness of a carbon bike, that “light” but almost instant responsiveness of a carbon bike.

Why those 2 steeds singled out? I think they marry the best of both worlds at this point. The comfort & confidence of a steel bike with the acceleration of a carbon one

Maybe try out one of these? Heard nothing but good things and can really be dialed in.
