I got all excited this year and bought a new carbon frame and new group for a new build and rode it most of the year. Put fenders on my Strong, rode it in the rain and remembered how much I love it. Think Im gonna give it a new coat of paint, new enve fork, and ride it another 30000 miles. Its too nice to be a rain bike, and it handles better than my off the peg carbon.

If you haven't spotted it yet, Carl has some great materials/tubing info in the "More Stuff" area of his website.

And I like the jersey too!!! Any more Strong Swag?

Carl,

You seem to be one of a small number of builders who has chosen to offer builds in steel, titanium, and carbon fiber. Could you describe the drive behind that evolution for us? Was that a customer pull/demand, or as the technologies became available did you prefer to delve into them to see what they could offer for potential customers?



Thanks,
William

Awesome

Fortunate enough to own a 2nd hand strong and I absolutely love it. Rock solid, lively, handles great... etc. If/when I order a custom frame, there is no question I would call Carl first.

Carl - What went into the decision to stop making aluminum/scandium frames? If someone begged, would you make one again?
