So in other words, it's just a Mission Bicycle?

Yup. Rides better than an overpriced Cinelli frame. And don't worry, I've got my aluminum track bike for that hipster sled cred.

Whew. Glad to hear you have the aluminum frame bike. I was really concerned about that. Even better that you posted a pic of it, just now. Thanks.

But don't you think it's just a little pretentious to go around telling everyone your Mission Bicycle is an Emmanuel Eng? I mean, sure it's an Eng (without any of his design flair), but that's like bringing a bottle of wine (you picked up at Trader Joe's) to a party and making a point of telling everyone it's from France. No one really cares and you just sound like a douche.

Also, it seems to me, you're the one who has insecurities about it. I mean, you can't even call it what it is: a Mission Bicycle. And you get really defensive when someone calls you on it. As a matter of fact, as far as steel frames go I think they're pretty decent.

You take this way too seriously. Riding bikes is fun mkay! Sound like a douche??? Dude riding track bikes in the street makes one a douche! Don't bikecheck people if your stable consists of Mash SF / Cinellis.

Unless you are not the original owner of the La Piovra, I did see you on the street once, and mentioned that the paint on that thing was cool.
