“Dear Alex, I just want to thank you from my heart for the Power Plus frameset you recently built for me. It has exceeded my highest expectations! When I opened the extremely meticulously packed box last Fall, I simply could not believe my eyes. I have had many top brand carbon bikes over the last…

“WOW !!!!!!!!! Even better than I was expecting Alex. Totally stunning. I’ve owned a lot of bicycle frames since 1981 and this is, without doubt, the most beautiful.
