The new frontier of stainless steel tubesets is now a consistent reality. I can offer any frame in a stainless steel tubeset. In general the US made KVA tubes are more cost effective in comparison to the Columbus options.

Stainless Dropout Choices
I have a few options for different applications.
Priced depending on market and seasonal availability.

Custom Stems: $225 +
After a few more requests I am offering stems again.
1” or 1 1/8” threadless stem for road or mountain bars, any rise or reach (within reason). Very nice polished four bolt faceplate.
Can add braze-on for/with Japanese Crane brass bell. Looks and sounds very pleasing.
If ordered with frame set, can be painted to match with up-charge. Otherwise black is the standard color.
For local customers, I can fit you here at the world headquarters on the Bernie Mikkelsen Sizer which accommodates a top-tube range of 46cm to 68cm.
Have an old high quality tig-welded frame that needs repair or modification? Call me up and let’s see if we can salvage that old friend. Would you like to turn that old hard-tail into a single speed? Add some disc mounts? Looking for a road to cyclo-cross conversion? Send over that 27″ frame for some canti-mounts.
If you have a design that needs to be realized in steel, stainless steel, or titanium I can be of service. Let my two decades of machine shop expertise see your project through its initial construction. Consultation for fabrication feasibility: Will your design translate to the machine shop environment? Essentially, have you designed something that is beyond standard manufacturing techniques? A relatively short conversation could save you a great deal of hassle further into the process.
