ti or steel (not AL) high end production (not custom). So far I've seen:

Bianchi XL ti/boron/ti-carbon
Merlin Agilis
Litespeed Ghisallo (not out yet but soon)

who else?

doesn't look compact to me. Glad to see that wood rims are making a comeback, though :)

I think the photo is distorted because of the angle. It's nice to see a preview of the '02 Spinergy design. ;-)

BTW, I found the Wilier compact steel. It's the Angliru:

and anyway, until recently I think they had a statement on their web page dissing (one s or two?) on the whole compact concept. I just checked--seems to be gone now. I know they'll do the sloping thing on request, or if a person asks for it.

He is making custom steel, some with sloping top tubes at great prices. E-mail me if interested!
