    Classic looking, lugged, good quality (thin/lightweight), steel frame(sets) or bikes?

    I'm in the market for a thin, vintage looking, light weight, lugged steel frame. Think cinelli super corsa pista, mercian, or all those kierin frames like panasonic and bridgestone. Sky is the limit on price because I just want to see what else is out there but of course cheaper is better. No entry level bikes but whatever the next step up from that is fine. Perhaps, reynolds 631 or columbus type steel quality or greater? Brands and custom builders both welcome. If they are local and/or available for purchase online or in stores, even better (I am in the US and going to the UK to get custom fitted for a custom built bike isnt really realistic for me). Also, I am 6'4 so they'd have to make frames > 60cm. Would appreciate any input!

    i just might, brian. i like the specs of the wabi's. pretty hard to find for that price it seems. although wish yall had an aluminum colored frame! Are those clips holding on to the brake cables removable if I wanted to take off the rear brake?

    It's not my company, I just got one of their bikes for my birthday. Since they're new, you'd probably be helping them out to stop by and have a look, and let folks on the forum know what you think. They're really sweet bikes, and could use some more word of mouth. And yes, the stainless clips are removable.

    While I am not personally familiar with his frames, Adam at Standridge Speed Bicycles seems like a real stand up guy based on my experience of buying a T-shirt from him.

    heres a post on some other forum that lists a bunch of different track frame makers:

    http://www.londonfgss.com/thread527-2.html

    i hope i dont get kicked out for posting a link to another forum. if it means anything, i am not a member of that forum and just found it on a google search.

    man, it would be great if there was a list somewhere with all lugged track frame makers that used steel comparable to reynolds 725, columbus zona or better!

    No. I'm just one satisfied customer with their products. In 14 years their customer service has always been outstanding.

    Fuji Obey? There were some frames on ebay the other day but don't seem to be there anymore. Their website just says "cromoly" though, no clue what type.

    When Bill was still in SoCal, he was right around the corner from my brother's house. I bought a lot of stuff from him and had it shipped to me in Australia. Excellent service. Wabi is like that too - you can call up the store and owner will provide personal service. We need more businesses like that.

    I just found out that they're also going to be offering a fully lugged/brazed frame in red or champagne - $600 for frame/fork, or $925 for the complete bike. If you stop by there in about a week, you'll probably be the first to see it. That would make me a bit jealous.
