    Capitol CX Frames
    Anyone heard of the Capitol frames? I'm not really coming up with much on Google. It looks like a new company.

    Yes, that's it. I checked the site out. A Google search didn't really come up with any useful information. I was hoping for some first hand info from a member. Of course every manufacturer is going to say their product is great.

    They're based out of Cleveland, I'm in Akron. The carbon frames aren't anything special. Open mold frames (Ridley and Scott bikes I think) that they're importing from China.

    The metal stuff however is pretty rad. It's all fabricated in the USA with custom geometry options. A custom steel frame will start at about $900 from what I've been told. One of the local shops has been working pretty closely with them about getting the geometry dialed in on a line of 29ers and fat bikes. The guy behind Capitol hasn't been building bikes for too long, but does have a pretty extensive background in aerospace fabrication. The steel 29er frame I saw was very well made. Fast turn around time as well.

    Thanks, that's what I was looking for. Are they in any shops?

    Is Edge Outdoors in Medina? I'm just south of Cleveland. I've seen a couple for sale but hesitated on pulling the trigger.
