As some of you may know, I was recently swiped by a careless driver and subsequently had my bike mangled. So, while I am healing, the process of choosing a new frame begins...
The question I have for all fo you is: Do any of you have a custom frame as your daily rider/commuter/do-it-all bike?
The reason I ask is, I am leaning towards a full custom Bob Jackson frame 'cos I think they're lovely but I am starting to wonder whether its a good idea to have such an expensive frame for a commuter due to the inate risks of theft, damage etc..... Part of me thinks I shuld just get a Steamroller and be done with any fancy notions of gorgeous hand-built bikes but part of me thinks I deserve a really sweet ride 'cos my bike is such a huge part of my life.
Help me out!
