    Gunnar Crosshairs is a great steel option. Harvest some parts from your other bikes, fill in new parts as needed. Light for steel, eyelets if you need them. Don't think there's a disc option...

    Top Tube Preservation

    They keep the top tube prestine, the same reasoning that applies to putting a plastic cover over a newly purchased couch. Except trendier. One might question the purpose of keeping the top tube...
