|With all the messages relating to custom frames I guess my curiosity has been sparked.
Anyone have a list of custom frame builders? Who would you suggest? Any good/bad experiences?

|You might want to find something local to you if possible.

|Tom Teesdale has a great reputation and I really like my frame. His resume is full of Mountain Bike stuff, but his road frames are pretty cool too.|

|I have a TET road frame and am very happy with the build, comfort and finish.
I have had some problems with the paint, but when I contacted Tom he admitted that he had been having some problems and is going to repaint it for free.

|I second the Teesdale. I really like the way he uses a fastback seatstay, it looks great and stiffens the rear triangle. My foco looks great and rides great, but best of all Tom is super to work with and his prices are excellent. He will build in either steel or aluminum.|

|I'm on my second week with a Strong Road frame. ALL of Carl's frames are custom. He has a strong reputation in the mountain bike community (check the mountain bike review sister site) and I love his road frame. Prices start at $1,000 for a custom steel frame, very reasonable, and Carl is prompt, courteous and knows how to build a bike that's right for you.

|I posted recently on my positive experience with Carl Strong. What I didn't mention is that the bike he built me is the nicest bike I've owned. I've got 5000 miles on it and couldn't be happier with the Foco frame he made me.|
