I like my bikes (1) (2) made this way too. My 1991 Bridgestone MB-0, 1992 Bridgestone MB-3, and 1996 Specialized Stumpjumper FS were all — fortunately — acquired in the era where they were still handmade. I built my pre-amplifier and 4 monoblock amplifiers this way: resistor by resistor; capacitor by capacitor; diode by diode; solder joint by solder joint. One day, I will build a car and a plane in the same manner.
