Strengths:    Custom is everything they say it is. The bike was made for my body size and body weight and handling preferences.

Weaknesses:    You don't get the frame in a week, so be prepared to wait. Just remember Richard Sachs has a XX year waiting list, so doug isn't so bad.

Bottom Line:   
I studied the reviews, met the man and ordered the frame. I got exactly what I wanted. Beautiful welds, graceful lines, rides like a dream and has soul. Doug takes the time to listen and the end product reflects his skill as a builder as well as his paying attention to what you need. I also own a custom Ti frame I had custom made by Seven Cycles before I got the Curtlo. If I were doing it again I would have bought both frames from Curtlo. A deal at twice the price and super quality and performance. A crash in the off season required a repair (tube replacement) and I got it in time at a great price. That means a lot as a racer. I would recommend Curtlo as a great bike bike with great service.

Open tubular CX clinchers with latex tubes; vs tubular tires for cyclocross

What do you guys think about "open tubular" clinchers with latex tubes (for CX); vs tubulars. The Challenge versions have a very similar high TPI cotton casing (like the tubular versions). I can run fairly low pressures (on my Challenge Grifo "open tubular" clinchers) with the latex tubes, but sin ... Read More »

Cyclocross bike sizing; why such short top tubes?

I am in the market for a cross bike and am trying to figure out a good brand of bike that will fit me. It seems that many companies make their top tubes pretty short. I really like the new Focus cross bikes but they have very short TT's. The Trek Crockett also has very short top tubes. I am a size 5 ... Read More »
