a few of you may have seen this posted on the Cr list but i thought id add it here.

mark bulgier has made a full stainless steel bike and i like its minimalist purity. henry james lugs and columbus metax tubing - nice.

metax. rhigyn is defunct by now.
do i like it? it won't rust, yes. painting won't scratch. you don't need chrome. no weight savings since metax is heavier than other steel tubes.
hmmm... i don't like it. give me a painted steel bike. in red please.

Seems to be the most popular name suggested by the CR list for Dave Bohm's magnum opus in stainless steel. It's in the gallery at the Bohemian Cycles, website, at This bike is truly amazing.
