    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.

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