thanks. i found the writeup you did on your website. it's great to see a builder who matches aesthetic and craftsman brilliance with a willingness to embrace progressive geometry. do you have a pricepoint/range in mind for your built-to-order stock geo mtb frames?

Thanks. I feel like people get distracted by my aesthetic a lot. It is important to me, but far from number one on my list.

The stock geo bikes are very much a work in progress still, so I do not have a firm pricepoint in mind entirely. It will be less than my custom Titanium bikesl... What would you expect it to be?

Thanks for the kind words,
Adam

Very nice!
People get very weirded out by short stems on a dropbar bike.
What was the thought process here?

edit: cool. thanks for the info!

Hey Thanks!
Pretty long stem by today's standards, the 70mm stem is a proper counterbalance to a higher trail number than this rider is used to. Trail is one lever, the stem is another. More trail = better handling off road, shorter stem = still "responsive" or quick steering action.
