That is the kind of frame I like, though I can't see the point of a fixed gear on it.

me neither, it would be great with touring gears, but it is on the "hip" single speed frenzy anyway it is indeed beautiful

I think they are just trying to recommend you buy the new CrocsxUggsxSIDI collab for your comfortable winter biking needs. EDIT: oh sure mods...delete the spam posts so that they no longer provide context for my joke

Done.
Here is a closeup of the brakes, but I am really showing it for, again, the lugs.

This frame should be similar to mine:

But that is habit and perhaps I will be talked out of it. Some lugwork photos:
That looks great. Nothing wrong with a nice comfortable ride. Don't know why you'd want downtube shifters, though, except for nostalgia or aesthetic reasons. Reminds me of the summer I rode my dad's old, old Peugeot. I didn't bother to get it tuned up first, and the shifters only kept enough tension to hold two gears, or three if I held it in position while I rode. The leather seat was so dried-out that it was like hard plastic, so I duct-taped some foam moulding over it. It was ghetto-fabulous, and I'd get strange looks from the geared-up roadies who ruled the roads at early hours. Anyway, I much prefer not having to move my hands to shift.

Neither, really.
Just for some fun, relaxed riding. Family life will make all-day trips a bit harder until my kids get older, but that is what I enjoyed doing before. Never did multi-day on a bicycle.

I'm glad you appreciate all of the hard work I put into designing them
