Steel bicycles hand made in Pleasant Hill, CA
Base-price for any frame with a typical suite of brazons etc. is $1200. Add to that the cost of special tube sets, internal cable routing, rear dropouts of your choice (range from $20-$250), machined head tubes... Basically, anything extra that I would need to purchase or is an insane amount of work.
Truss Fork (R.U.R.F.) $750
Realized Ultimate Reality Fork. The last mile of steel fork design. This design is very strong and stiff both fore and aft as well as laterally. The truss transfers the forces from hard braking to both top and bottom bearing surfaces. Integrated. The Aluminum steerer tube significantly cuts down on the weight. The result is a very strong fork with improved fidelity in braking. Available along with a frame purchase or custom made for your bicycle in 1" or 1 1/8" standards. I build these according to your needs or intended use from road to mountain to multi-gallon water carrying beasts. There is a small up-charge for full rack and water carrier bosses. Comes with Spacer Kit and Cane Creek 40 Headset.
Standard Segmented or Traditional Crown Fork $400
These classic style forks are available center drilled for road calipers, with bosses for canti-levers or for Paul Racers. Standard 9mm dropouts, 12mm or 15mm Through Axle.Any wheel size or tire width. Any standard from 1" to 1 1/8" to 1.5". Disc brakes not available on this type of fork (with rare exception).There is a small up-charge for the use of tapered steerers from Paragon Machine Works.
I am very proud of my stems. A lot of work goes into these. The Stem clamps and the H-bar clamps are machined down to save weight but maintain strength. Available with 4-Bolt face plates, 2-Bolt face plates and traditional road style clamps. A variety of H-bar clamp diameters, 1" or 1 1/8" Steerers, full spectrum of lengths and drop angles available.

You can have any color you want...as long as it is black. My frames and components come standard with a Blue-Black patina + clear coat. I put a lot of wok into making my frames beautiful and I do not cover them with pigments. If you want powder coat in a hi-gloss clear that can be arranged for an additional charge of $200.
Wheel Building $150/set
A variety of hub spacing, rim manufacturers and spoke types available. -OR- Ill build to your wheel-set if you already have them.
Components Group $500 - ridiculous
I can order nearly anything you want through my accounts with various component makers and distributors. I cannot order just parts for you. The parts you purchase through me compliment the things I manufacture. I have a standard mark-up but do offer better pricing on my Frame, Frame-set or Fork when you order a complete bicycle. I strongly prefer to outfit my frame-sets with components that are made in USA and particularly those made local to me in California. Companies like Paul Components, Paragon Machine, White industries etc. deserve our support. Visit my page on "The All California Group" for more information there. --- I understand that people have budgets to work with or have specific requirements such as racing performance or stylistic needs (Hard to beat an 80's Campy Super Record crank-set for beauty and performance!). Usually this means a mix of high-end low-end parts that can be upgraded later.
You can order a frame-set from me and build it yourself using your parts or I will make all the parts purchases on your behalf and build the bike myself...no charge for this. All cables and housing is included.
