Custom Ti in SoCal?

Holland Cycles looks amazing. Love that it's a full service shop complete with in-house wheelbuilder. Any others I should look into? I would prefer them to be in SoCal to make the fitting process easier.

I don't know of any other reputable Ti builders in SoCal but not sure if I would even consider anyone else. I've seen probably over 100 of his bikes riding around San Diego for the last 25 years and every one is absolutely flawless in construction with some of the best welds I've seen. Every owner I've talked to seems to be very happy with their Holland. Of course shelling out that kind of cash may effect your perception if it was yours but never heard a bad word about his frames. I don't think he even had a website until about 5 years ago so word of mouth was his way of getting new customers which says alot about his bikes.

I love everything I'm hearing and reading about Holland. Looks like about $14-16k all-in w/ wheels and just wondered how that compared to others out there. Currently on a Pinarello (love it); but if I were to upgrade to the Dogma with DA-Mech and decent wheels, that would already put me north of 10 - and it's not even custom.

Russ Denny is well known, not sure how many Ti bikes he builds.

His website has turned into a simple business card, but he's worth contacting.

I think he's building full-time for Ritte... but can't remember.
