Doug Curtiss made this for me out of True Temper S3 tubing. A custom bike is like nothing I had ever experienced before. It is like having a suit made for you. The fit is superb.This bike is incredibly comfortable and yet stiff and fast. I would recommend having a frame custom built at least once.

Lovely!

How did you settle on the sloping top tube, was it for comfort? Great build! I'm a big fan of the reynolds solitude wheel set. I have the decals removed on mine, something to consider if you think its too visually loud (the hub on the other hand is just perfect :))

The sloping tube was what

The sloping tube was what Doug recommended. My recollection was it was weight related. I told him I wanted a steel bike at or under 17 lbs. With the gruppo I provided and the wheels I could afford at the time it weighed in at 17.5.

I did think about removing the decals but opted not to.

Beutiful ride!!! I have True

Beutiful ride!!! I have True Temper S3 with a very similar setup.
Not custom like yours, but the Geo happens to be spot on.

I saw yours...very nice. I had looked for a Primero for a few years before having my Curtlo made. The S3 tubeset is superb, light, stiff, but with the feel of steel.

NICE!

I love the look! Flat black... like a sr-71 black bird....
