Death to press fit on steel frames.

When they introduced the Mr. Pink, they were all PF30, and they made a big selling point of it.

Things I hate:

Yeah, the whole point of buying a Brooks was the break-in that makes it comfortable and custom ass-shaped. I keep getting different answers as to whether the Cambium breaks in at all. If not, might as well go with a normal saddle that doesn't weigh over a pound.

and white bar tape gets dirtier much faster, making it look like you ride more than you actually do. recommended.

I know 3 people IRL that have cambiums and hate them, ladybiek included.

White bar tape makes it look like you ride when you don't.
Black bar tape looks the same whether it's dirty or clean, which hides the fact that you don't ride.

white bar tape also shows off how little you actually use the drops

High Mileage Steve cracked three noses off of Cambiums and has now given up on the saddle. He gets 15K miles and then the rubber cracks where it lays on top of the metal nose where the rails attach.

I don't love my cambium but I'm too lazy to change my ways

Fat tire fixed gear, cool chainring, nice aesthetic and it's a Surly. Idk. I just like it. I recognize that it's almost a laundry list of tarck-unapproved components.

Only unapproved because we all have owned every single piece of that spencer at one time or another

Bought a spencer today. Could not swing an Endpoint. I put up half the parts from the Nature Boy on ebay and they all sold. Once the frame sells I will be at $-50.00 spent on a new spencer.

Trek Crockett frame:

Front wheel is Hope to Stan's Grail 32spoke, 15mm QR. brakes are some shimano ones that one of the Laughing Dog mechanics described as "great." He said the Spyres were garbage. Bottom bracket is a Wheels Mfg converter so I can use my GXP crank.

Reusing the seatpost and cockpit, rear wheel, and tires from the nature boy as well. Still single, still ready to mingle! Saved about... $1200 going this route.

And I love the "Shitty Trek 69er" colorway

Unless you are allergic to money, you definitely don't need a Wheels Manufacturing conversion bottom bracket to run a GXP crank in that frame.
