    Thanks folks

    Sorry for the late reply back. I finally went with a Landshark, and I am loving it. Based on the geometry (I had a 72.5 degree seat tube angle), the ride is smooth and tracks like a dream during cornering. In addition, I went with the beefier tubes for stiffness and durability (I didn't want tubes to be too thin). The paint job was fantastic, it is all black with three large copper dragons around the main tubes. Once I figure out how to post a pic, it will be up.

    How about the Brits?

    Hello all. I am looking to replace my 86 Trek Elance with a custom lugged steel tourer. My Trek has severe bottom bracket flex. Gears shift automatically when I push real hard on the pedals or when I pedal over bumps. Not convenient when I'm trying to keep my rhythm and momentum up hill! A great mechanic reduced the automatic shifting, but only partially.

    What do you guys think of British custom bikes, like Bob Jackson? Also, what about Mercian, Woodrup, Malc Cowle (is he British?) and others?

    Steve Rex of Rex Cycles in Sacramento does very nice work as well. Well worth a look if you are in Nor Cal.
