Oh, Temptation.......

This summer I will be going to Colorado to visit my nephew. He said that I could hang out at the business he owns the whole time if I want. I was invited to feel, touch and play with the merchandise. He also said that if there was anything that I needed or wanted, just let him know, I can have it. This is the business that he is part owner of:

Oh my gosh....*feeling faint*.... I can't "go" to his shop! I've got eye surgery to pay for!!!!! What to do, what to do.......

You're right. Me stealing from your nephew's store wouldn't be very nice. On the other hand, YOU stealing from your nephew's store....

Steel is real. Have him put together a cyclocross for you w/ some Long Shen lugs and Reynolds steel and you'll have something you can ride off-road.

Taiwanese I think. Which is part of China I think. Anyways, no American company manufactures lugs anymore. Just a few craftsman that handmake the lugs. As for another bike, think of it as your sports bike. The one you take when you wanna go fast, but can still bunny hop potholes and jump curbs and steps.

An example of lugs: custom frame. If your nephew can build something like this for you, I think it'd be a nice addition to the stable.

Edit: the frame linked above is a ss/fg, so it's not a road bike. So you wouldn't be crossing over to the dark side, more like the shady side.
