Thanks for the suggestions guys. Ritte, from what I remember, basically just buys an off-the-shelf frameset and wraps it in some snazzy paint and graphics. Appleman, while custom, does tube to tube and I need monocoque. It appears I'm just going to have to invest $5-10K to get one of the frame sizes completed so that I'll have a real-world bike. Might as well since we'll need to dial in the carbon layup eventually.
So, until I can drum up that kind of cash, the project is mostly on hold. I'll still do the modeling and get it ready to roll though. But Kickstarter will have to wait until I've done some more market research and have an exceptional one-off prototype for testing purposes. Whatever the case, it's an exciting project for me to work on!
