I am not sure how to do this, but I have heard of a few bike enthusiasts(nuts) getting together to request a special order of a frame from a builder. I have been itching to get a Downtube bike, but would like to start from scratch so that i could spend my budget on the custom build, plus I could never find a used NS in black(if there ever was one), plus I can't even find a used one(a good sign i guess). I have heard of so many other people doing modifications to theirs, that i wonder how many people would go for this. Maybe we can get Yan to order a few extra bare framesets in his next batch.
Yan, what do you say, If we can get enough people together, can you make a custom order, or include some bare framesets in your next purchase order?
