    Spicer 29er

    Gene Spicer did this custom Ti 29" "cruiser" for me in January 2006. Working with him was wonderful, and the process of reviewing and amending blueprints proved fascinating! Seat tube length is 20.5" and the overall weight is a fraction over 25 pounds. Handling and ride quality are delightful. Styling (and welds) are beautiful. This bike is a keeper!

    The first four pictures show it on Day One, the last shot is tonight's- note the addition of a Blacksheep Ti unicrown fork and Moots Tailgator rack.

    Poppy, your Thylacine is really beautiful. It is the best looking bike to have been made (ok, its not quite finished yet) in a long time !

    Youre welcome. Being a Thylacine owner myself I know that you are going to be over the moon with the finished product.

    XACD for Two

    I had this made by Changda almost 4 years ago. It was a totally custom project and they performed to spec. I missed on one detail that I should have caught but that was my fault totally and I was able to fix it on this end so no biggie. Not the prettiest welds but they are holding, so far, and I hope they do for years to come because we really like the bike!

    Gene Spicer

    Middle man? As far as I can tell he was the designer, not merely an importer. My frame was a full custom and during the spec'ing process any changes I'd request would be quickly incorporated into a new blueprint and emailed to me. He is certainly fluent in the language of frame design and fit! However one defines Gene's role the end result was 100% customer satisfaction.

    Here's mine; it's a copy of a Karate Monkey and came straight from XACD (no designer or middle-man). I've been really satisfied with it so far and the construction and execution is pretty nice. If you deal directly with XACD you better know exactly what you want because they are frame builders not craftsmen or designers.
