So much 90s cool on that Mega-Pro.
I can't believe you took off the Cook Bros crank and Ritchey pads.
The saddle and tires I can understand, but Thomas Frischknecht and I are shedding anodized tears right now at what you've done to that bike.

You may not see it this way, but what you did was very much in the same vein as those hipsters who build retro cred fixies out of old Masis. You took a great period bike and turned it into some commuter/touring machine.

I don't want to attack you, but somebody has to speak up for 90s cycling around here.
