Well, since I have odd body dimensions I wanted a custom frame again...this time more race oriented, however I didn't have a lot of money to spend. Looking around it appeared the best deal out there was a custom frame from Tsunami Cycles since they do custom geometry for $650.00.
The frame is heat treated aluminum...which some might not like due to aluminums reputation for a harsh ride...however, I've had several aluminum bikes and never had issues with the ride. Initial reviews of this frame are good. The bike is stiff, but dropping the tire pressure a little gives a more than acceptable ride.
The frame was built up with the parts from my Velo Vie and the frame weight is 2 pounds 13 ounces (with headset installed). Total bike weight is 18 pounds 6 ounces with cages and powertap on the bike.
