    Frame builders/modifiers in SoCal (san diego)

    So,
    I've googled and to no avail. Well, little avail. I can't find an email address for Holand cycles, and I've heard they ONLY do TI frame work.

    The back ground is I'm tired of playing with vert drop outs on my old road frame. It's my daily bike and it's a PITA to get the tire even, chain tension right, etc. So, I'm kind of willing to put some cash down to have the drop outs replaced. But, I don't want to spend an arm and a leg, and I don't need it painted. To make things even harder, I'm not willing to have the bike lost and gone for weeks on end. (I'd have to ride geared.. or resurect my back up frame and the Thylacine isn't close to being done.) Now I could cludge it, cut them off and buy some drop outs AND have some local yocal weld them up. But, well, I'm a little nervous about that.

    Anyone have any links, email addys and ideas on cost? I'd appreciate any ideas, help, etc...

    I could buy a cheap track frame ~ even an IRO for a reasonable cost, but I have developed a special love for the Bianchi frame and would like to hold on to it if possible.
    Regards,
    William

    Call Bill Ron of Bill Ron Bikes. I'm sure he could at the very least point you in the right direction.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I know a few people who have Russ Denny bikes and are pretty happy with them.

    He's in Temecula.

    Thanks, I'm stuck with emailing now. There are no phone lines. How antiquated is that?
