I'm looking at a used sycip right now. It seems like a really good steel frame bike. Any opinions on their frames.
Also, I like the looks of the soulcraft..opinions? I live in the bay area and want to buy from a local custom frame builder.

You can't go wrong with either. I have always been a fan of Sycip though. I love the unique features that the frames have, and I hear nothing but great things about the ride.

I have a friend from So Cal that has had one for about a year now, and he loves it to death.

Good luck,

Good choice.
I had (Curtis) Inglis Cycles in Napa build mine. Apparently they all worked together in same shop, Fat City I think.
Can't go wrong with a hand built custom steel frame, the ride is too die for.
Bay area? Eisentraut!DMoore

One of the first great American framebuilders in the modern era. If you're looking for a steel frame, he does terrific work. Located, I believe, in Oakland, with a reputation that's nationwide.
Eisentraut? Really? never...canafornian
