My cross check set up in with bullhorn bars
So, how, where and when do we want to start the "Official Commuter version" of the Hot or Not set of rules?
OK, this is a gratuitous attempt to revive the Hot or Not thread and continue spamming pics of my new bike in the process.
Right now it's in CX racing configuration, but I chose this frame specifically because I'll be able to conscript it into commuting duty once race season is over.

Thanks - I was very pleased with how that came out. The headbadge is very appropriate given the decals and build.
I'd love to put some fork with a fancy, over wrought, crown on it...like a Rivendell...if I could get it at the right price, and if I knew the rake matched. I'd still add huffy transfers.
It really needs a carbon fork. A carbon huffy fork would be hot.
Don't think I didn't consider it, but this bike really is a beater and does take abuse (like salty roads in winter). As funny as a CF fork would be, I don't think it would work.
Aaron, it's hot because it's so perfectly functional for you.
It really is a terrific bike...not much it can't do with aplomb. It's a weird-o, but it suits my needs very well. The shifting can be a little wonky - in a perfect world I'd change over to a Suntour 7 spd rear hub/freewheel and derailleur - but the replacement costs would go up a lot as well. It's usually not TOO bad and can be tolerated.
