going to have a custom fixie built. have pretty much narrowed it down to rich adams. like his style and his know how. anybody ridden his work, any suggestions, first frame i will have built....
I spoke to Rich at NAHBS... super, super nice guy, and a really motivated/interesting builder. Definitely a guy I'd have on my list if I wanted a frame built -- really lovely work. Interestingly, he primarily builds with Dedaccai steel, which is fairly uncommon amongst US builders. Definitely give him a shout though.

GREAT guy, knew him from when he was at Medina Cycleworks (aka Wrenchscience). Chatting with him at NAHBS reminded me how down to earth he is, which can only help you when ordering a custom frame. As for suggestions about your first frame, make sure you take your measurements 2-3 times before giving them to the builder. Get a friend to help, if not the builder himself.

He runs a GREAT local shop here in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

i've always been a big fan of his bikes as well. also talked to him at the show and thought he was a great guy. plus, he only has an 8 week wait on his bikes (before paint). i would highly recommend him.

Go for it. Every frame of his I've seen has made me lustful. All the owners I've spoke too just kept going on and on and on about how wonderful their bike was to ride.
Been a long time fan of his work and if he hadn't relocated from CA, I would probably have been a Rich Adams owner myself (aside from that little issue of money).
well... i thought i had made the right choice, this just seals it...thanks for all your feedback. i will hopefully be placing my order when he gets back from the show. thanks
affordable, street tuff, smart builder!
