Well, it's been a long trip, starting in January 2008 when I got fitted in Tokyo by Akio Tanabe. The idea, like many who post here, was to get a classic, lugged, steel road frame but with a custom build. I'm in Asia, Shanghai when I got fitted. When I was in London I had two custom steel machines made, a TIG Corrado and a fillet brazed single speed from Chas Roberts. Kalavinka seemed to work as they were easy to deal with, had a good reputation and were near our office in Tokyo.
