I would do some research barmeybear. I mean other than asking strangers via the net. Have a think about what you want, and look into what each of the builders offer.
Feather – lug work, Nagasawa – stunning finishes, Rourke – amazing fit, Mather – understated detailing, Cooper – fillet brazing etc, etc.

The distance from seat to bars is immense, how tall are you?! Maybe just the angle...
Either way I love it!

Lol, cheers guys, I love it too although all I have done so far is stare at it. I'm 6ft1 but I measured the saddle to BB centre and it's the same as my daily as a starting point, I'm sure it will need adjusting as I get used to it. Also the drop isn't too bad when you consider my elbows will be on the pads.

It mean that you can spend 11 months riding properly and then have a better idea of what you want for a fixie skidder.
IMHO, the 11 months waitlist is a blessing in disguised.

I've been seriously impressed with his frames ever since I first saw them a couple of years ago and have been following his work since then. I know he's only been building a few years but his work, his bikes are amazing!! If I was to go custom, he's very high on my list of builders.

As a Feather owner, this is my take on it: Ricky is a very talented framebuilder who puts immense attention to detail into his work. What he doesn't have is decades of experience building bikes for racers and tourers, like Rourke or Roberts. But those guys have their methods and are much bigger operations - they either can't or won't do the sort of work Ricky routinely puts into his frames.
So it very much depends what you want - a 'proven' bike with custom geometry or something more unique. Both are made with skill and passion. I think there's space for both those bikes, even in one stable.

Whether there is mony for both is a different question ;) I'll contact Ricky again, who seems like a really nice guy, and see how quickly he can get a frame together, im already drooling over a black frame with brushed raw stainless lugs and fork, ahhh. I he can get one done before the year is out I'm sold, of not then I may have to look elsewhere. While Bishop look lovely I know that they are immensely expensive.
Regal do you have a road of track?

I love the modern way of choosing a steel road frame. When I was doing it, it was all a bit different.
1: Get train/tube to Kilburn
2: Pick cheapest OTP frame in my size from selection hanging up in J D Whisker's
3: Ride for next 26 years and counting.
Advantages: no waiting time
Disadvantages: none that I can see. I still love my old Hirame Osaka Pro, well worth the £120 investment.

Has anyone here tried using a 31.8mm clamp stem on a 26mm bar with shims before?
I couldn't find a decent (that I liked the look of too) 25.4mm or 26mm clamp stem to fit in on my salve(ish) current project so got a new Rithcey WCS 4-axis, but still being very indecisive about bars and very tempted by either some Syntace Stratos 200 or Nitto equivalent which obviously have smaller clamp size than the Deda Debar, or even the Cinelli MASH bars, which I'm loath to get on principle, but are a good shape.
Was wondering if anyone have tried reducing shims and if they looked too ridiculous, or more importantly, if they slipped at all?

love the shape, cheaper than MASH, OS clamp.

I ask because this was top result when googling Hirame Osaka Pro

Although, I'm not sold on some of his stems.

Problem is I'm a perfectionist to the point of anal retentive when it comes to setups, and I really want this bike to be a perfect mix of form and function and am convinced it can be done without compromise to either, or at least to my tastes.
