    Endless possibilities and we will work with you is not the same as you can do whatever you want. I went back and read your original post. I understand their position better than yours.

    Glad it worked out.

    Would they put "TREK" on the downtube?

He is building the bike and it is his reputation that he is marketing so he should be allowed his whims of what he will or won't do. His reputation is what brought you to him, and his ideas on what is or is not right should be respected.

    There are other builders, and you said you found someone who would do as you want, so bring your money there.

    Disclosure: I have not read any of the 16 pages of this thread.

    Sounds to me like the builder gave the OP several reasonable options, including one that allows him to put whatever he wants on the downtube.

    I can’t believe he bothered a bunch of other frame builders over this.
