The San An is certainly a classic, what year is yours!

You've also manged to fully cultivate that mid/late 90s MBUK reader's bike look. I think the clean look would suit it better, but heh it's your bike :wink:

One final point I always thought it a no-no to have stickers on the frame of manufacturers whose components don't grace the frame. Might as well have a "Dogs Die in Hot Cars" or "Jesus Loves You" sticker. Not a bad idea actually.
