    Wow! Nice bike! I'm a bit of a Hobbit at 5' 3", it looks like my size and it looks great. I notice that it doesn't have the ISO (integrated seat post) that you see on some of you bikes. I like the looks of ISO but is it overkill/unnecessary on small frames?

    Thanks! No, I do not think its an overkill, but it takes a bit of time to fine tune the geometry of a small frame to look nice. We recommend a minimum of 200mm of integrated seatpost exposure. Now that means that an extra extra small frame will have to have a very short seattube c-c measure, which is fine as long as you don't mind using a side-swapping bottle cage. We have built many small frames with ISP which look just as good as bigger frames ;)

    Nice review of your Suppresio frame on CyclingTips.

    https://cyclingtips.com/2017/07/witt...-frame-review/

    I didn't realize that your Dad did the titanium fabrication for Colnago. I am sure you've mentioned it here, and I just missed it. I remember someone telling me back in the 1990's (?) that Colnago's titanium frames were built in Lithuania, but I just didn't make the connection.

    Cheers for reading and sharing the review.

    Yes, my father's biography has been described in details on our website for quite a while now :)

    Some pictures worth posting here, I think, thanks to Matt Wikstrom at Cycling Tips
