    Kish? (xpost)

    Since everyone in General seemingly hates me...
    I'll ask here in the friendly SS arena...


    Anyone have any experience with Kish Ti frames?

    I remember seeing one at Cambria.

    Look nice, local, etc.

    Tell me all you know about it all.

    Good experiences? Bad? Weld quality, etc?

    Any info appreciated.

    Thx.
    Looking for...
    A PINK Chris King Headset... and disc hubs!

    As well as a Morati crankset!
    PLEASE Email me or PM me with any leads!!!

    As far as I know, underhyped, top quality builder. Taught framebuilding at UBI in Ashland to many of the current custom builders out there.

    Thank you my good man.

    It seems like no one has his frames though... bizarre.

    Ask on a roadie forum. I think you'll get rave reviews.

    Thanks Wooglin and Zonic...

    Thanks Wooglin and Zonic (guess I need to get a cooler name)...

    For the record, I still teach at UBI, and there are many manufacturers on this and other forums who learned their craft from me and the others at the school. Also, there are plenty of my bikes out there (12 years worth), but since I split my work time between teaching, consulting and building there are far fewer than some custom builders. Additionally, I spend 0$ on advertising, so my propaganda campaign isn't as advanced as it could be.

    Check the website for details, or email me.

    Jim,

    Out of curiousity (I'm not looking for a new frame right now) what is the geometry like on your production frame?

    Thanks

    Mike,

    Geometry is pretty neutral. For instance, a Medium measures 18" from bb center to top of top tube, 23" top tube, 5" head tube, 16.75" chainstays, 71.5 head angle, 73 degree seat angle, 30mm drop.

    Let me know if you want to see any other sizes, I'll email the chart to you.

    Kish SS

    One of my buddies has one of your custom SS. You built it in 98 i think. Really a work of art. Do you build them with disk tabs and EBBs and geometry for 100mm fork now a days?

    Thanks Zenfrog (now I REALLY need a cooler screen name)...we do them with normal or EBB shells, and for any travel up to 125mm.
