My new Tsunami...

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.

For a custom made frame? It's better than the 6 months I waited for my first one from another builder....or the 5+ year wait list for a Vanilla or Sachs before he stopped taking orders.

2 months is about as fast as you will ever get when it comes to custom frames :)
aaah, custom made, no wonder. then the time delivery darn good for ya. gratz mate. enjoy ya ride.
