Springy tubes and biggish tires, this is a suprisingly awesome riding bicycle.

Helped the special lady build this one up a couple years ago, frame from craigslist for cheap needed paint, so we started scrounging used bits and pieces, all told I think she has about seven hundo into it including the powdercoating (the brooks was a birthday gift from me). My lady built the wheels, and did all the work on the build on this one herself, while I provided parts, instructions and advice while drinking beer.

I think it turned out pretty alright.

Nicely built, looks like a great bike.
