    Hi J. Lee Cooper in Coventry might be worth asking. Made 14bike co's stuff I believe. Has built plenty of tourers I think. Maybe with the fitting by scherrit and a nice tubeset, his experience (like Winston and some others) could be just what you're after.


  • Here's an xcr he made:

  • I also recommend Lee Cooper. Made a lovely one for me for a very reasonable price. Nice bloke, too. Doesn't do bike fits, mind. You need to get that done by someone else.­e-Frames-143467732372026/

  • I thought the only reason to get a custom frame was so you can get a massive headtube, slam 'dat stem, and look rad

  • Ti as well actually.

  • Anyone know much about Stelbel? The frames and finishing look incredible, and the price is very keen for custom geometry and paint. What is the catch?

  • They're not exactly cheap. I love them, the sb/03 is to of my want list.

  • When you add up the frame, fork custom geo and custom paint the price is pretty good I think. I like the look of the Rodano personally, which is a bit cheaper.

  • I can't find the price list now but I seem to remember the sb/03 starting at around 1600 Euros, then it's plus paint etc. Very similar to what you would pay in the UK.

  • Yeah, but they're just as well made - so it's same price, same quality I guess. A guy at work is riding one and it is beautiful. Really lovely. He raves about it.
