The Macho Man is just a bad ass bike. The cable routing on the top tube keeps clean without the inherent loss of crispness associated with full length housings. The dropouts and frame fittings are both elegant and functional. The fork is a lovely tapered straight blade with a bi-plane crown and lugged droupouts. Some frame designs just don't need to be improved. The same goes for the Turbo saddle: it's a classic and will continue to be so for a long time.
