I've seen these guys before, I think it's definitely cool but the bikes look heavy as hell and aren't my style.

Pretty sure I'd give my left testicle for a renovo though.

The Renovo frames are super cool and not all that heavy either. Not to mention compared to a custom frame price wise their pretty comparable.
