I would feel more Fred like on an aero full carbon bike with deep dished low spoke count wheels than I would on a classic steel race bike.

Any clue of the price or wait period for a new Sachs? I'm not in the market, just curious is all.

According to his web site, a $400 non-refundable deposit gets you on the waiting list. Final price cannot be determined until he actually gets to your frame, due to the long lead time. He's currently delivering bikes ordered ~18 months ago at a base price of around $2800.

vdub

go to Marin county on a weekend. hang out in Fairfax, San Anselmo, etc... and keep your eyes open. Then you'll see some soccer mom riding one with baskets and groceries. Run up to her and offer $$$$$. there are tons of epic vintage MTBs in Marin now being used as townies. Cunningham racer would be fine for me,my brother has his eyes out. (he lives there)

I'd feel fine but I want a Sachs Crosser. I'd feel bad for all the guys who are faster that have to wait for mine to get made. yeah around 2800 and I heard that it's a really looooooong 18 months (more like 24).

I did not know the connection, thanks for the info. As for the wait times, that is about what I was guessing. If it was 60 months, then I might have the funds time my number is called :)

I'm really close to owning it already...

I've got my Custom Curtlo and the only thing I'd change is some of the components.

Wheel set: Chris King disc MTB hubs, Mavic Open pro rims, 32 14/15 DB spokes
Headset: Chris King
Crank: Not really particular here...Just something very stiff and lighter than my FSA Energy cranks (must be compact)

I would love SRAM to come out with a hydraulic disc brake set and shifters for 10 speed road stuff. That would give lighter weight and a bit better modulation than my Avids.

Overall, it would lighten my bike by 2-3 pounds and still be very strong for my weight and size.

Other than that....I'm in love with my Curtlo.

Mine is easy, exactly as pictured and ya'all can call me Fred anytime. :D
Hey, that looks quite a bit like mine, and as it happens my bike is my dream bike, or at least about 98% so. Once my cranks arrive--about 1 more month--and once someone comes up with an aluminum seatpost w/ setback that is light and not butt ugly like the Thompson, it will be 100% my dream bike.

So as it stands my dreambike will be/is:

57.5cm Moots Compact
Campy Record 10 FD, RD, Brifters
Reynolds Ouzo Pro Anatomic CF bars
Ritchey WCS OS Stem
CK headset, pink of course
Powercordz cables in Shimano housings
Cinelli tape
Polar CS200cad 'puter
Kack FSA cranks (awaiting arrival of THM Carbones Compact Clavicula cranks)
Kack FSA chainrings (Stronglight CT2 chainrings are in the drawer, awaiting the Claviculas)
Kack Shimano Ultegra BB (replace w/ nothing: the Claviculas have integrated BB)
Speedplay X/2 pedals
Moots Ti Layback seatpost (awaiting New Ultimate Al seatpost w/ setback?)
Fi'zi:k Aliante saddle
Zero Gravity Ti brakes
Yellow Swisstop pads
KMC X10SL chain
Cycle Dyanamics Ti cassette
Reynolds Stratus DV wheels
Vittora Evo Corsa CX tubies

For me, the Moots Compact blows the pants off the Waterford frame I had before......blows 'em way off.
