Bike builders in Alberta

Just wondering if anyone knows of a bike builder in Alberta. I am a welder by trade and would possibly like to build a road bike.
Thanks
Jim

I have a Runout. Chris Read is a friend of mine (great guy), and I got him to build me a custom titanium frame and switched the components over from my old(er) bike. I rode it for a few weeks before the weather got too bad and it's great, no complaints at all.

I like what I see online from Arvon Stacey in Tofield. There is a guy here who reps his stuff, probably the best pics are now on here in various fora.
