    Very nice. I'm thinking steel frame and wide tires for my next bike--------when ever that happens. And a Sam Hillborne would be towards the top of the list!

    I just think the narrow tubes - particularly in the rear triangle used on a steel bike are so elegant. Good looking bike.

    Those tubes aren't narrow, they are normal. The ones you are used to seeing are fat.

    No - the ones that I am used to seeing are correctly sized - the ones being cranked out by builders in other materials are - well - ugly...

    Sorry you lost you best friend - here is mine:

    Looks ok to me. That is a huge frame. You must be one tall dude.

    I'm 6"1'. It's a 60 frame. To give you an idea of the difference in sizing, I ride a 56 in the Cannondale. While the bike doesn't feel to large, it certainly maks the CDale feel much more compact.

    My first thought exactly!
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Not a spec of CF in that photo.
    Where is the white garage door backdrop, though?
