I wonder about bikes like the Co-motion, it looks like a well thought out frame with some good components. ( I wonder about some of the choices, Kalloy seatpost?). What make me wonder is the cost of the frame $1375.00, at that price you are getting close to custom frame territory. A custom frame will fit you and not be a compromise. Where the price does go up in the custom, is in the complete bike. Manufacturers get a much better price point on their components. Having said that however a Clyde has to remember that you will have to upgrade many of the components on any bike to hold the extra weight.
I am presently getting a custom frame built and it has been one of the most pleasurable things I have ever purchsed. It will end up costing not much more then the full Cro-motion bike, and I have picked (with help from the builder) every single tube, component, graphic and colour. I think a better choice.
