No, your wrong; lugging a frame during construction allows the builder to offer a frame in many more sizes. Now, with that being said, it only REALLY applies to a none custom frame; if you are getting a frame built that is 100% custom than you are probably getting custom sizing and geometry anyway.

This doesn't make any sense at all.:confused:

A bike that is fillet brazed, TIG welded, or lugged can be made in any size. The method of joining the tubes has nothing to do with how many sizes can be offered. Lugs are actually the most limiting, as a builder can only use angles allowed by the lugs available. A fillet brazed join can be made in any angle using any tube length available.
Thank you.:D

Oh yes on that choice of lugs.

And I always figured that my mid '60's Schwinn Continental had to have been made out of solid bars of steel as no tubing could weigh that much.
