I like my LBS a great deal but they sure don't have bikes like that hanging around for sale.

I note that the Eisentraut Limited has a seatstay attachment much like Ron Cooper's. Anybody know how many other framebuilders use (or have used) that particular style?

The Singer and Masi are both beautiful.
