Discovered recently that local legend Lee Cooper has started building frames again, and is taking orders.
(Not that he ever stopped building frames - he's just started up as a freelance again is what I meant.)
He made this for me:
And now it's built up. Rides like a dream.
Thanks, karlos :)
Hey @lazybeard that's a great news indeed especially because he is the one who built the frame I always loved. Just out of curiosity since I didn't hear many good things about 14bikeco where he used to work before, what about himself as professional? I understand he is very well regarded on hear but would you be able to share some more infos about him? I'm asking because instead of going down the route of getting another builder to do what I want, I would rather go to who already knows how to. Thanks a lot for your help.
What sort of info are you looking for? He's a very experienced frame builder who will build to your specs, and he's a very nice bloke too. I highly recommend him.
Yes that sort of info, I'm looking for a trustworthy and reliable builder with whome I can have a good communication as well; so far many failed.
About Lee, I just got a reply back from him saying that he is not willing to do the frame I wanted because he doesn't like it (he used to build those for 14bikeco) and I'm now waiting his reply to understand what he would be keen to build instead.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
