Yeah...among other things. That's the big reason though.

NOS New Success and Sachs Attack drivetrain (8spd), NOS Race Face cranks, NOS SDG, black Altek levers and NOS Control Tech goodies. A frame from 2008 that looks like the frame from 1994, sprinkled with some old school love, but disc brakes and the RS Revelation fork will keep the party going in the modern sense. The best of both worlds!
