For all of the advancements in frame materials, to me a nicely built bike of light steel tubing still *feels* the best to me...(nice looking bike, BTW)

My Zank is Pegorichie, one of the first. The ride and handling are incredible.

I've updated the drivetrain over the years.

Tubeset they (Sachs and Pegoretti) specced that was designed for the lugs they use (or something like that). They make them available to other builders too.

I think my steel Zanconato is also PegoRichie tubes and yeah, it's a pretty nice bike too. Here pictured with some Ergott-built wheels, which have been extremely nice as well and fit this bike perfectly.

Crappy picture, but you get the idea.

Like Eric's, mine has evolved over the years on the build as well. Not flashy, but this 105 stuff is hard to beat for performance and value.

From the Richard Sachs site:

"As professional cycle racing came to be dominated by carbon-fibre, a new wave of craftsmen framebuilders appeared on the scene. Those wishing to work with steel tubes and lugs found that building frames to modern performance standards was difficult, largely due to lack of suitable materials and tube profiles. Doyens of this band of constructeurs, Dario Pegoretti and Richard Sachs, worked with Colombus to develop what became known as PegoRichie tubing – Spirit (Columbus’ premier ferrous tubeset) for lugs. Oversize round tubes and long butt profiles made PegoRichie a favourite of craftsmen builders worldwide. Now, with oversize profiles in ultra-high tensile materials – Spirit and XCR – steel can compete with any other frame material – aluminium, titanium, carbon-fibre." http://richardsachscyclocross.com/sp.../columbus.html
