Wouldnt this be something to have sorted out before the frame build began? I would think you and the builder/company would come up with frame geometry that works for your intended use and body. The fit difference between a drop bar and flat bar or the various alt bars can be significant.

If you read the thread you will see I am working this out with the frame builder. The actual frame building will not start for some time. The wait times can be quite long. Thanks

I read it- the current and future tenses were confusing, so I posted a response about it.
Cool that the build hasnt started, this makes more sense.

Who is building the frame?

No worries. Joseph Ahearne is building the bike.
