Agreed with above. I like the visual simplicity. Looks straight like a retro bike and a rider both. 8)

That is very, very nice. As said above loving the simplicity and clean lines of this bike. I think you've restored that to it's full potential.

I think you've slightly over-done the cutting and pasting from Bikepedia there - award yourself an XT rear mech and spd pedals! And actually the lack of the Tioga Psychos is the only regrettable part of the whole thing, great otherwise.
