strong frames custom blend

after 3 months, my custom road frame has arrived. no, it's not some uber exotic carbon wunder frame. it's actually a very modern steel steed. it's made by Strong Frames, from Bozeman, Montana. i talked to him a bit, sent him my beloved fastback frame, and he took it from there. it was really that easy.
it's made from true temper, columbus, and reynolds. a nice "custom blend" of tubes to make it something special.
really simplistic graphics, nice black paint, and a very elegant look.
i dig the chainstays.
it turned out very nice. it weighs in at 3 pounds, 3 ounces. i plan on using most of the parts from the fastback, but it will eventually get an Edge Composites fork.

Who did the paint?

the people at strong did it. it's plain powdercoating, but it came out very nice. lucky, i guess.
