Found: Custom Steel Cyclo Bicycles from Spain
Frames like this make me feel special because I don’t want to race them. I don’t want to do time trials or sprints. Instead, I just want to ride them. Cyclo Bicycles is a company based in Spain that manufactures classic-looking custom frames, taking a step away from the all-carbon, weight-conscious mentality of bicycling. Cyclo’s mission statement reflects their approach to cycling – they write that they simply want to make the rider smile. In regards to that, everything about these frames are made-to-order so it would be hard to frown. The Asphalt road and the Toxto Mountain Bike hard tail are featured here. Both frames can be bought as complete bikes as well.
The Asphalt can be constructed from various Columbus and Dedacciai tubes, or stainless steel if you’re wallet’s up for it. For stainless, options include KVA, Reynolds, Columbus and Kaisei. Then they’ll paint the frame to personal specifications. Standard colors are listed on their website, but they offer to paint it anywhere on the spectrum. Cyclo also offers a choice of weld construction: TIG, Fillet-Brazed, or Lugged.

This frame is one of the many constructions by Cyclo. The sizing is completely custom and they will work with any geometry.
They offer the Toxto frame in 26er, 29er, or 650C (yes, C).
Cyclo says that they can have any frame completed in 6-8 weeks from initial order. Pricing changes due to the custom nature of these frames, but they have detailed information on their website to help calculate the overall price .
