Ready to buy low cost Ti frame, Which one? Many mentioned.

I'm ready to order a custom Ti frame to my geometry specs. I don't want to spend a lot of money for a Moots, Seven, others. I want to keep the price down. I'm not going to order XACD because of lies and long shipping times. Which companies should I be ordering from? I don't mind ordering anywhere, U.S., China, Russia. As long as they don't steal my money and they deliver.

Its a where do you want it made. imported, You have no input.
just cash or credit card?

if you get it made in the US by a small shop,
then you can have personal changes made..

Brick and mortar benefit.
if you go thru a retail bike shop there will be no risk
of your money not getting you a bike.

depending on what kind of bike you want, touring, road, mtb, etc, this question might be better asked in the related forum
