Wow! Very cool post. I'd like to see more of these. I don't know if I've ever been to the Spectrum Cycles page, but now I'm going. I especially like the bit about mistakes among the general cycling public. It's pretty much what I would have said (which means, of course, that he must be right)... :)

Thanks Everett...

There are plenty more to come. It's going to be an entire series.

And yes, by all means check Spectrum (and all these guys) out!!

Yes, very cool.

And hey, number 30 came true!

Shame about Tyler. Unless he really did it.

Nice job Scott, very interesting.

Keep 'em coming.

Good stuff, Scott. I've seen plenty of his bikes in the flesh as he's sort of a local (an hour away) builder. Many folks who finally decide to go custom do what I consider really, really smart and visit the builder to get fitted. So he makes sense for somebody in the Philly area. This area actually has quite a few builders. There is Steve Bilenky, Harry Havnoonian, and Bill Boston who consults or smething but still lives nearby.


A Spectrum Ti is the bike that I hope to be riding someday. Tom's attention to small details makes him a fine example of what one should look for in a framebuilder.

Very cool! I'll be back to read more.

Some very interesting and well thought out interview questions. Perhaps you can add this to the Tom Kellogg site on the CR Website.

I've been riding a new Spectrum custom ti for about a month and a half now. My only non-steel bike. Awesome, awesome ride. I'm not sure which type of customer I was, but I only second guessed one detail of Tom's original design, which led to a bit more discussion and a minor change. Let him put all of that knowledge and finely honed instinct to work - he's the expert!


Like the site. You're a good writer, a touch poetic, but got some talent.
You could leave some of the favorite food type questions out. Would like some frame philosophy, material useage questions, Tubing, lugs, geometery, Opinions on the effectiveness of carbon seat stays. Stay design. Rider position, stem hight and lenght. You know, the nitty gritty.

I have a '79 Tom Kellogg steel custom that's absolutely terrific and incredibly light - I've haven't weighed 'em, but it feels lighter than my all carbon Kestrel....the front end of the Kellogg is pretty whippy, so I gotta keep my concentration in the right zen-mode....
