M-gineering frames to measure
seatcluster Why bother with a custom frame?
If you can find a suitable frame of the peg, don't bother with a custom frame. This will save you money, and a long wait.
However having a custom frame built can be worthwhile if you have special requirements concerning construction or finish, or if your bodydimensions don't comply with the average according to the frame factories.
That will be the case with very small or very large sizes (our jig will take a 76cm frame), or bikes for females, but that isn't the biggest market. We find that a surprisingly large number of customers of ordinary size have shorl legs for their size. And they will be far happier on a small frame with a long toptube, than with a stock frame and an oversize stem, because the latter solution destroys the weight distribution.
