Steel road frame for Seattle

Maybe it isn't the lightest, maybe it isn't the newest.....perhaps it lacking a bit of snob appeal but frames like this will still be on the road many years after the latest rolling carbon fashion statement has been buried in the landfill. Don't get me wrong, I like and build some uber-light racing bikes but in the back of my mind I always think about durability and reliability and try to squeeze as much of that out of whatever material I am working with. It just happens to be the case that steel is enduring.
Team colors, team decals....this guy could live in the bay area no problem.
