I've been building steel bikes since 1971 and riding steel bikes since ~1956. With and without lugs.. Dave P

All the talk about CF, Alum, and TI bikes, being as good, better, or old fashioned or who ever else, got me thinking( look-out). I'm 62 yrs and still ride, always do every bit of my own work on bikes. I love to get my hands greasy as much or more then riding. So here's the catch! I have never swung a leg over anything but standard size real steel. When I see a CF bike it's like I glanced at a 1997 Nissian! No reaction what so ever. When I see lugs it's like seeing a 32 Ford coupe with a chromed out 350. Is there anyone else who has been totally faithful to steel?
