    Right on!

    Old steel moots are so full of style.

    This bike rocks!

    That one looks like it was built in '91, I think they started in 90.

    The steel ybb couldn't handle the flex, and in 93 Kent started building with ti. Steel ybb's that aren't cracked near the bb, on the crank side show the rider was light, didn't ride hard, or didn't ride much.
    Nice bike!
