Do I need a custom built steel frame?
Some of you may have seen my 'dilemma'posta month or so ago, very briefly when my insurance payout (hopefully!) comes through I will be in the market for a new bike, most likely I will end up riding carbon bike in the 2.5 - 3k range.
I am constantly drawn back to looking at a custom steel frame, Ricky Feather is based nearby as is Arthur Caygil, very much old and new skool.
I like my bikes fast and to handle, comfort is important but I'd take the former if I could only have one of those!
Should a steel beauty be left as a 40th birthday present when it really will be a bike for life?
Would love to hear from those who have gone from a 'good' carbon bike to steel - both positive and negative!
