    have a chat with Warwick at www.thylacinecycles.com . He's a big guy himself so he will definitely be worth speaking to.

    Strong Frames (15 Years and Counting)...

    As you can see, there are a lot of good builders, but very few with the experience that Carl brings to the table. Check his stuff out at www.strongframes.com, then shoot him an email.

    He has built bikes for people bigger than you!!!
    I'll be along... eventually.

    If it's any consolation I'm 6ft 4ins when I stand up straight, which is rarely.

    Triple triangle as in GT stylie or are you counting each side of the stays as a triangle?

    What do you mean by triple triangle? Here are some pics off of Carl Strong's website at:

    strongframes.com

    Carl's phone numbers are:

    (406) 586-6264
    (800) 586-1105

    From his website:

    Ordering a frame is easy, just give me a call. Even if you're not ready to order but have some questions and want to learn more. If you don't know what you want and you don't even know what questions to ask, give me a call and I can explain the process. It's my job to translate what you say into a frame no matter how technical you may or may not be.

    i would 2nd/3rd Strong Frames. I have had Carl build me a frames in the past and i just placed my order for a new steel hardtail frame 2 weeks ago. He will listen to what you want and will spec out tubes and geometry for your weight and riding style. Carl really is the man when it comes to building custom steel bikes.

    Before you commit to having anyone build your new frame for you, take a few minutes and call several builders and see which one you agree with and which one you feel most comfortable working with. Since you are going to get a custom spec'd bike, you want to make sure the builder is going to listen to your concerns and build you what you want. Not what they want or just use what ever tubes they have kicking around the shop. You are most likely going to have this frame for many years, so it is worth spending the extra time up front to talk to all these builders.
