    Who built your custom frame?

    Hi there. I am considering having a custom frame built (steel or ti).

    I am on the smaller side, so I want someone who is going to be good at building a bike that is going to fit me.

    Ultra-Swim works for me.

    I was swimming 5 days a week for a while and ended up with brassy, crunchy, hair from the chlorine (and I have dark hair).

    Ultra Swim helped a lot.

    Also, the tip...

    Oh, PHEW. Thank you. That is what I was hoping to hear. Intuitively, it didn't make sense that everything would have to be re-done, but I really didn't know.

    I really don't want to drop that kind...

    I have had the same problem. The part that gets me is the seatpost attachment (not the sides).

    I wrap it up in electrical tape. It's so stretchy and sticky it works well to make a smooth fix....

    Wow, thank you for your thoughtful replies. I am definitely up for finding something used on CL or ebay. This does not have to be the bike to end all bikes (that was the road bike, ahem) but it just...

    Oh, thank you. I will look at your suggestions.

    (The Campy really is not a deal-killer. Just a wish, if possible, which I am now thinking is not gonna happen.)

    Thanks for your replies. Roguedog, it does not have to be Campy, though that would be nice.

    If I bought a frame, or even went sans-campy and bought a whole bike (possibly my preference because...

    I am in Europe and am bike-shopping right now. When I ask about WSD, everyone's whipping out the Specialized / Cannondale brochures.

    That being said, I am short like Papaver and that could be...

    Thanks, aicabsolut. That's helpful.

    Thanks, both of you, for your input.

    Zia, did your immediate "comfort" on the new bike translate to long-term comfort? Also, out of curiosity, have you done a triathlon on your new bike?
  17. Newbie question on "fit" for those with experience (advice sought)

    Hi there. I have a newbie question for the more experienced crew out there. It concerns fit and finding a bike. I'd like to hear what women have to say about this....
