Gabo. If you do not make this a production bike I will be furious. At least make one for your old pal Joe.

All Highend MTB's and Road-bikes were CR-MO before the use of Aluminium frames was so common..

Jamis makes beautiful steel bikes. I think Rocky still has a frame, so does Kona tons of custom builders use steel. 24 7 dark cycles balfa brooklyn machine works you get the point steel is real.

Jamis yes they do make a decent steel frame, also if you get a chance, Harry Gary out of Spokane makes hardtails, and fully.... IVY cycles makes them too, but the guy is waiting on his jig to get here from the midwest... he moved back to good ol CDA IDAHOtup

Found a NORCO 16" chromo frame at Goodwill... bought the whole bike complete w/ U-brake on chainstays for 5$, had the rear spaced to 135mm, dropouts changed to vertical, headtube changed to 1 1/8, and had disc mounts and braces placed on the rear triangle for support...

there is still high end race and xc frame made out of steel. they give you approx. the feeling of titanium at a fraction of the cost

usually they are really small company that produce not a lot of frame per year
