|the website offers custom cross frames for $2,400 !!|

|Craig has always made cross frames. I remember seeing some cross frames he made way back when it was just him and Moose working in a garage on Minna Street in SF (even before he built bikes for LeMond)
One of the big advantages of how he builds frames is that he can make completely custom bikes, including cross bikes.

|Anywhere near Mission and 6th in SF has got to be a "cool" place. Lots of action down there day or night. That's a great part of the city to people watch among other things. That's interesting to know that he started off there.|

|Yeah, lots of "action" as in drug deals, stabbings, etc! The crime went way down during the dot-com boom but now it's gone back up. That said, Pow! is still a cool bar and worth the trip.
Calfee was somewhere around Minna and 5th. It was a loooong time ago ('91-ish) He hadn't even gotten his order from LeMond/Team Z at that point and was still making those funky MTBs with elevated chainstays.

|No disrespect (I own a custom-tetra) but doesn't the cable routing look really uncomfortable for X-cross? Or am I missing something.|
Oct 8, 2002 10:22 AM
|the routing looks a little to the side of the TT. It probably wouldn't be any more uncomfortable than a steel or alu TT bashing down on your shoulder. The only problem I see with the cable going there is that it could get snagged a little on your jersey as you try to bring it down.|

|that routing doesn't look appealing to me. Cables in the shoulder...unless he put them to the outside. Yea I know that neighborhood as well. I remember getting chased by a Latino gang from the Bart Station to the edge of the Noe where luckily (for me) a white gang from the Sunset was coming towrds me looking for a brawl. I ended up bringing the 2 together and I guess they got what they were looking for. I don't know I didn't stop running, probably my fastest mile ever.|
|that's no short hike||climbo|

|glad you made it out of that one. I'm sure for $2,400+ you could get the cables wherever you wanted. I would definitely move them to the side or the top.|

|true about the 2400 and cable placement. then again for 2400 bucks I could Frankenbike 2 cross bikes and have about 400 bucks left for spare parts, extra wheelset, travel to races, beer, etc...|

|no it wasn't (short hike) but adrenaline will do wonders for your running. Then again that was about 15 or so years ago.
Hey I could use the extra money for a gun (kidding) or medical treatment.
Ran pretty well last night as second flat caused a back tire/ rim rollover which sent me for a good one. was out of CO2 so I did a bloody legged 6 mile jog / walk portage practice then proceeded to the Urgent Care for chainring cut stitches and general road (dirt) rash clean up.. Once again ran well thanx to a good dose of adrenaline. That post wreck buzz is a sweet one.
