I have always liked the funky look of the softride frames.

Would not ride one but they look neat.

The Rivendell website pics do not capture the beauty of the bike. http://www.rivendellbicycles.com/htm...ellframes.html

But I don't remember ever seeing a prettier bike. A wrench in my LBS has a coffee colored Waterford with chromed king James lugs. Gorgeous.

Nothing beats the look of a lugged steel frameset built up with a 10-speed Campy Record group and 36-spoke Open Pro wheels. The classic look of understated elegance.

MMMM, Vanilla...check out those lugs, and if you like discs on a road frame, look at that beautiful cross frame. If money was no object I'd have one for sure!

Hey, Mr. Jerk:

Not everyone is a poser (like some folks). And I don't recall your asking us to post what 'you' think is a cool bike.

I like the way this one looks - now it just needs a Rohloff, different pedals, fenders, v-brakes, some slicks and a nice big rack on the front and back Well, its a good starting point at least.

Crazy TT and pursuit bikes are my favourite. Orbee's Old Fiathful, Merckx's first hour bike (with the small front wheel), Hotta carbon monocoques, Boardman's Lotus, seventies funny bikes, CSC's current Cervelo TT bike, Pinarello's figure-of-eight frame (Bjarne Riis rode it), and Millar's Worlds-winning sport UK TT bike is gorgeous.

Personally, I prefer a shower. I find car wash brushes and pressure hoses a little harsh on my tender bits.
