Is it Luck?

A while back I decided it was time to build up a nice bike that I could be proud to ride, you know… something nice from the ground up.  I started getting everything together.  I got my wheelset built through the guys at Velomine.  By the way, Ben at Velomine was a pleasure to deal with…  Anyhow, I then started getting everything else together.  Cinelli stem, Murphy seat post, origin8 this, origin8 that, KMC chain and so on.  I had a color scheme in mind and wanted the bike to look mean.  I was painting some chainrings for it and other odds and ends.  I basically got all nice/decent parts and ended up skimped on the frame (which i know was retarded).  I got some jap knockoff of a Leader frame and I definitely  got what I paid for.  It looked tight and was not total shit but I also wanted this bike to be my main bike so it just dident cut it.  So this whole time Id been looking at builders (which I never thought Id have the cash for) and other nice frames from companies like the Cinelli, Leader, Masi, and whatever else.  I came across Spicer Cycles through some google searches and loved what he was doing.  Ive always wanted a pursuit frame but was never able to get them at a decent price.  I also wanted a steel frame so bad.  I gave up in my searching for a bit and just dealt with the old frame. One day I went back to Spicer and I ended up getting lucky.  He had a clearance frame that just so happened to be my exact size, the exact style I wanted and was even a color red that was perfect, not to mention it was steel.  It was on sale all because of some small powder coat issues which I could give a shit about.  I got a hell of a deal but to be honest his prices are great to begin with.  I gotta say his quality is outstanding and service was even better.  Im just about done building it up and cant wait to put a shit load of miles on it…  steel pursuit

I love this frame.
