I remember a discussion at work a few years ago that went something like this:

Co-worker: "Make it idiot-proof so anyone can do it."

I picked this up for a steal on ebay (I was the only bidder). It was the full Cyclone group that drew me in. I believe it's a 1985 model, and probably built for Nashbar by Maruishi.

Love the color...

Andy, I do think there was a lot of initial "copy-perfect-improve," but there was definitely a lot of innovation, too, which the book does go into. Components and tubing, definitely. As you know, I'm...

This. I'm in favor of a mid-week "Bike to Somewhere More Meaningful than Work Day." :)
