It's more likely that the framebuilder currently building subcontracted frames in Montana is Carl Strong. Carl builds both lugged and Tig welded frames in steel, and also builds in aluminum and titanium. At one point a few years ago, he was building bikes for Ibis prior to their demise. I have two of his frames, a very light and steep road frame made from Columbus Foco, and a singlespeed mtn. frame from Columbus Cybex. Carl's a great guy, and an accomplished builder.

I don't think Stan is building frames any longer. I'm familiar with his frames, too, and they were quite lovely. Came across a couple when I was working for Sam Braxton back in the '80s. As mentioned, it's a treasure -- ride it and enjoy!
