I agree with Curt on this but also like the look and style of this bike a whole lot. Simply my opinion, of course, and no more or less valid than any other. I do know the price with a steel fork or a carbon fork (God forbid!) is supposed to be $2295. (I got several photos of the frame in various iterations over the last month or so.)
I feel that lugged frames should be encouraged in this day of cookie-cutter frame building and robotic 'framebuilders.'
It is also nice to see Richie back on this group.
