I might have missed it in the many pages of frames, but is there (or could there be) a bring your own frame (BYOF) option? Seems like a selection of drop downs and helpful how-to's on the key considerations (wheel size, BB, HT, brake mounts, etc) is all that is needed. Saves you guys datamining for every frame ever.

Also, thoughts on adding some level of bike geometry comparison? For instance, frame sizes are so different between brands, it might be useful to have a BB locked comparison to say help with stem length, seatpost setback, fork AC/sag so when somebody is building a new bike but wants similar cockpit fit to their old bike, they can quickly see bar height, reach, bb drop, etc between bikes.

Otherwise, this is awesome!

Hey Matt, nice to see you pop up over here. The exact things that you mention we have discussed. The 'BYOF' option would be a great way for customers like yourself who have built bikes through a custom frame builder to input their frames for the purposes of using our tool for upgrades. I could see something like this being added as we iterate on future revisions of our site.

Likewise, the same for a geometry comparison function. This one may be a little bit further down the road once the primary facets of the site have been honed further. But I'd envision this to be a visually represented feature where the 2 bikes were over-layed together for comparison purposes. Maybe even having you as a rider showed positioned on the bike too.

Thanks again for this type of input. Its very valuable and shows that we all may be on a similar thought process as to where this can go.

Cheers, -CBaron
