|I ordered a custom bernina last year. They don't answer emails, the frame was two months late, the rear dropouts were grossly misaligned so that I had to spend an hour filing and sanding them, a bottom bracket cable guide hole was mis-tapped, and they left aluminum shavings in the cups of the headset after installing it.
If you're looking for some deals check out gvhbikes.com or if steel is your weapon check out strongracing.com; anvilbikes.com, or steelmancycles.com.

|Friends in Vancouver call them Craperotti, but i know guys who ride 'em and like 'em.
Have looked at them up close, and they look all right, but thats all i know.

|They have some very compelling values in all their lines. The road bikes look very good but the cross frame can't take Avid shorty brakes. I don't know who else makes good brakes for cross bikes. Normal MTB cantis are marginal and V-brakes are worse.
Even at bargain prices I wouldn't take a gamble on a shop or frame builder so far away for such an important thing as your bicycle.
A good friend of mine just bought one from their main retail store in BC (he lives there) and I'll know more about his experience soon.

|There was a recent thread on this exact subject on the VN forum. The consensus, as I recall, was the Cramerottis are sub-par compared to a lot of other frames out there in the same price range. You may want to see if you can track that thread down to see if it provides any first hand knowledge.|| |
