    Anybody Have the October '05 Issue of Bicycling?

    Here's the cover:





    Somewhere in this issue is a small 1/4 page (or so) story about a custom builder based in Idaho or Montana - somewhere up around there. The company has a funky name and there is a picture of a road frame or a complete bike.

    There is a mention of the paint job on this frame being one of the nicest Bicycling has ever seen. They also mention the guy who who painted it.

    Please help me find this information - the builder and the painter - I had a long conversation with these people back in October and have completely lost all my notes.

    Thanks for your help.

    Not sure but is it this:

    Owner Carl Strong started Strong Frames in 1993 and the company has grown steadily ever since; Strong now builds about 200 steel, titanium and aluminum frames a year, and while most are road frames, the company also makes mountain and cyclocross frames. Most Strong frames are custom builds (the Hyalite is the only model to come in stock sizes; a custom Hyalite is an extra $200), and Strong offers plenty of build-kit options, including four kits from Shimano and six from Campagnolo. If you're in the neighborhood, you can visit Carl Strong and his two employees in the Bozeman, Montana, factory for a tour or a fitting.

    No, Strong makes great stuff but that's not who I'm looking for. Thanks for trying.

    Information found - Hairy Gary Bikes in Spokane was the builder, Steve Forsness in Hayden Idaho did the paint.

    Thanks to MICHAELM in the road forum.
