    Are you sure you want to take a cyclocross bike on a year long trip?

    I think you're going to have to convince yourself it's worth the money. How long is his wait at this point? His involvement with Speedvagan has been getting him noticed.

    I HIGHLY recommend Mike. Real down to earth guy, very nice. I have 2 of his frames. If you want credentials bikes have been voted best Tig bike 2 or 3x at the NAHMBS and used to teach at UBI, not mention like unterhausen said he welds part of the Speedvagens. As for worth the money, he is cheaper than many others.

    Be sure and tell him your intended use of the frame before he starts on it. CX frames aren't suitable for loaded touring only due to light weight being a very high priority. I am sure your application would require some additional consideration and perhaps some additional wall thickness in places.
