This is a nicely built modern style bike.

I always wonder why companies like Surly - who have expensive frames - put the brake cable stops on top of the top tube like this. Not only does it look odd, but it also forces you to use the little rubber donuts to keep the cable from slapping on the top tube when you're riding the bike, which to me doesn't help the appearance any. They could just as easily put the cable sops on the bottom of the top tube, or just use cable guides instead of stops so you could run housing all the way back to the brake.
