that is absolutely beautiful.

there's a purity to it that just does it for me, like there's not a single millimetre of unnecessary metal on it.

That is pure Bike P*rn, nicest Bike I have seen on the site, they handle like a total dream. I have one of the old Specialised Videos- Pulp Traction and these frames are well featured, I have always wanted one, but they are very rare now, just missed one in Mango last year. Are you going to actually ride it? They really do shift!

Oh yeah, I'll definitely be riding it! I never add anything to my stable I don't intend to give plenty of trail time to. :twisted:

Your Steel is a very beautiful example! I really like it, especially the TNT cranks look sweet.
