Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Best custom road bike fitters / builders in San Francisco

Looking to get a custom full carbon frame built. I live in San Francisco and just wanted to see if anyone out there has some recommendations. Looking to spend around $5-6K for a frame that will last me a LONG time. Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions on who is the best in scSan Francio for this.

Thanks,
Mike

All the guys I ride with (sf2g.com) swear by Bespoke Cycles in Noe Valley for fitting and custom builds (mainly Ti and Carbon). I'm scheduled for a full custom fitting this week.

I was hard-pressed to find anything negative spoken about them.

Calfee is near Santa Cruz. You can get measured by them and buy the bike directly from them. Calfee probably knows more about building bikes from carbon than most other manufacturers, they have been building them since since 1987 and have repaired thousands of other manufactuers bikes.

A Calfee is a bike that will last you a life time. They have bikes with more than 120,000 miles on them and finding one of their bikes from the late 80s or early 90s that is still being riden is common.
