    Strong Racing

    Anyone riding a frame from Srong Racing? If so, please give me your opinions. I appreciate it.

    I was. Picked up a used custom Strong that was built up to match the geo of a Kona Explosif. I ENO'd it and rode it for about a year. Absolutely loved it, both in terms of fit and ride quality. But alas it didn't have disc mounts and I wanted to try the 29er thing on a dedicated SS design so it's now stripped down and hanging in my garage. Anyway, I'm sure others will respond and everyone will speak very highly of Carl's excellent frames. True works of art. And supposedly a real pleasure to work with if you go the custom route. S

    Talk to Donkey...

    You'll find him over on the 29" board as well as this one. He's had great experiences with Carl, and owns 2 Strongs, I think.
    Although I've never owned one, I've ridden one a bit, and it was nice. Carl's also a pretty solid guy, from what I know.

    Strong

    I have a strong SS custom blend OX Platinum and Columbus Foco frame. It is a fantastic riding frame that can handle a ton of abuse. I highly recommend working with Carl.

    Not sure of all the companies that Strong has built bikes for, but it's a long list (includes Ibis). From what I understand, Carl is only doing his own brand now, but it doesn't change the fact that his work is quality and it's well respected within the industry.
