That’s it, because I just can’t be bothered to itemize every little threaded boss or whatnot. If you want something that you don’t see listed here, ask.
Getting started: $300 deposit gets you on the list, then I send you a fit sheet to fill out and I’ll ask you some questions. I may ask about your current bike, past bikes, physical limitations, local riding areas, alien abduction memories and all kinds of other stuff. Then I design the frame, send the design to you and we talk about it. Once we’re both satisfied, I’ll set aside the materials for your build. When it’s time to build yours, I’ll give you an update and you can peek in my internet/social media widow and see how it’s coming. When it’s ready to go to paint, you’ll get another update and I’ll ask you to have the balance ready. A week or two after that, I should have your frame ready to ship, at which point I’ll ask for the balance to be paid. You’ll also be responsible for the shipping cost, unless you’re local and want to pick it up.
I’m currently building about 12 frames a year, which I try to keep to one per calendar month. That gives me time to enjoy the build process, not fall behind if I encounter a minor setback and maybe even go ride my own bike;) Chances are, you’ll get assigned a month when I get your deposit.
