English Custom Compact Road Bike

Having started frame building I decided that I needed to just be riding my own creations, and thus this was built to replace my titanium/carbon Lemond. I
wanted a comfortable training bike, and thus built the frame around a long titanium USE seatpost; I ended up with a very light compact road frame that
fits me perfectly and rides very nicely.
