Beautiful photo from an 8"x10" glass negative, hundreds of megapixels even scanning at a modest resolution. I'm still not completely sure what he's got going on with the handlebar mounts though. And it doesn't quite look like a Brooks logo on the saddle in that photo.

Probably a deal breaker for me too.
