Custom Carbon Fiber Framebuilders near Philadelphia?

I am considering a custom geometry CF road bike. It seems that the vast majority of the framebuilders are in the West.

I know Seven is in Massachusetts but even that is a hike. I would like to find a more local option (so I can meet personally with them for fitting etc).

Any suggestions??

Some brands have "working" relationships with retail shops who act as the hands on fitters and customer service. Have you checked into if Seven has a more local to you dealer? Andy

Yes. And there are. That is Plan B.

There are very, very few custom carbon makers in the world. Holding out of one in Philly is like looking for a jet engine factory in Sudan.

I don't know anything about Strong's carbon bikes, but someone like Carl Strong is going to design you a bike that is going to work for you. Even if they never meet you in person.

The last shop I worked in, which was 2 years ago, was a Seven dealer. Seven has it dialed in for fitting and delivering an excellent product. Never had any issues with them.
