I like the way a classic steel frame looks and feels, but I'm not a hopeless retrogrouch. Fact is that modern hubs, rims, tires, brakes, and drive trains are all far superior to what was available years ago. One thing I don't think is an improvement, however, is the threadless headset. The quill stem of a threaded headset is quite elegant, while the threadless stem looks like something that should be bolted to a steam boiler.
How many of you believe that threadless is a soon to be over fad?
