Not Retro, Original

In 2008, BMW recreated it's 1972 2002 tii to pimp the release of it's 1-Series tii Concept. Most folks just wished they'd just re-release the original rather than simply give a new model a retro name. Specialized has done just that.

Specialized has re-released their classic Reynolds 520 frame and dubbed it the 2010 Langster Steel Frameset. This is not retro, it's the original created once more—and it comes it white. Check out this totally beautiful and inspirational rendition pictured above. I love the simplicity and cleanliness of this little whip.
