    Baum makes really nice bikes. They are located not to far from where the world championships are taking place.
    Look forward to seeing your pics.
    Sometimes I ride my bike to nowhere, to see nothing, just so I can ride my bike.

    Just to verify, you live in the USA and ordered from Baum in Australia? How may days between when you placed your order and when it shows up at your front door? And, you are getting just the frame, or a whole bike?

    @moonmoth I'm in the US. It took a couple of months, one of the reasons: The Baum people were incredibly accommodating of my repeated geometry changes. Only Darren Baum welds the bikes which I think makes the bikes ultra special.

    Good stuff. Wonder how much is he asking for frames. The paint jobs are flawless.

    Prices were taken off like 2 years ago, the only option is to call. What i have noticed in the pictures is that almost all he had pictured is Titanium. Anyhow, the guys works pretty good, like his designs, racing stuff.

    i read in an edition of Ride (australian cycling magazine) that the price of the Dura-Ace custom titanium cyclocross rig (without discs), was $13K AUD ($14 USD)

    which compared to my Seven, which is basically the same thing at $10K SGD ($8K USD), is extremely expensive. I know you are buying handmade, but when compared to other handmade...

    Beautiful bikes some of the nicest Ti frames available for sure. Though, I think their classic solid graphics look 10x better than those racey GTR/GTX/GTH etc themed graphics or whatever they are calling it, and the painted seatposts/stems aren't my thing. I do love the way they paint the inside of the fork legs. They have done some beautiful matte paint work too.

    I recall hearing the Corretto ( Ti race model where every tube is butted) is in the vicinity of 6500-7000 for the frameset, but who knows if those prices are out-of-date, or gone up since Cadel became a Baum customer!

    I agree they are expensive, maybe a bit too expensive. I don't doubt for a second that there are lots of Ti builders doing work that is on par with Baum. I think Baum has a knack for putting together the full package—not only the craftsmanship in the metal work and welding but also the paint schemes (and thankfully they don't let their customers mud up work with their own concoctions for cheesy paint schemes—no flames or tacky stuff like that!).

    Perfect frame/paint:

    I realized I've never posted the full build, the bike has gone through fews changes. Still, the best ride ever, 13000 miles in one year, and it still feels amazing!

    I wanted to support Australian made, but a combination of the price, always having wanted a Moots, and hearing of a few cracking pushed me towards the Moots.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but even Moots crack (like any other brand). I've personally seen a Mooto-X roll in my old shop with a cracked rear stay...it happens.

    I understand any frame can crack, I'd just heard about more Baums going. I'd heard about 2 SS mtb frames and two road frames, all ti, in a short period of research. At the same time I'd spoken to owners who had their Baums for a long time and loved them. The desire for the Moots won out, especially at a similar price.
