    custom aluminum full suspension w/ horst?
    Does anybody make a custom aluminum full suspension bike with a horst link? I'm asking for myself and future generations. :) I know about some custom ti and steel options but what about aluminum?

    They do Al as well as Ti.

    Hope this helps,

    As far as I know, they only do CUSTOM ti or ti exogrid frames and not Al. The custom ti frame is sometimes as much as a full 1/2 lb heavier than the Al. frame and that's why I'm looking for a Al. frame.

    It sounds like Ventana will do custom geometry. Not a Horst link, but I imagine the performance is pretty comparable in most situations. That's the only custom aluminum fs option I'm aware of.
