    Lots. Mostly steel. Mostly heavy. Mostly geared, and very low, at that.

    Front radialo spoking on something that old? Am I seeing things?
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    on my polo bike i have some of these.

    http://www.boxwoodbicyclepolo.com/bars.html

    they're way skinny, like 32cm across, so climbing any type of hill can get kinda sketchy. i have yet to try then on a non-mtb setup, but i guess someone could. i think they maybee a bit too thick in the clamp area though

    It's a collector's bike. It probably is still overpriced, but stuff like that sells for a$s-tons of money.
