Hot bikes..What's yours (looks only)

Reading Big Sean's post got me thinking...Let's all get vain here, and show what you think you'd look good on? What match's your ego, cause that's something we all have....Bring it on! Take a leap!

My dream bike. for looks only..call me crazy:

Since a Ti is the only material I don't have, this is what I want. Merlin Extralight.



And this one.

I already have a fairly light carbon bike so back to the past for me.

A steel 7-11 Team


And I always thought this was one wacky fast looking bike.

My dream bike. for looks only..call me crazy:

The Cannondale SystemSix was the other bike I was interested in. Just came down to a few CM's difference. And the fact that Cannondal is lagging on production and it would have to be ordered and be an additional 8 weeks. Also meaning that I couldnt even size one without ordering it and pre paying.

More realistically, I think I'm getting this on the group buy over in road forum. I'll grab all my parts off the BD motobecane (almost all Ultegra) and toss 'em on the frame. $808. Good deal, no?

That's one nice frame. I would buy this too if I didn't buy the Bottecchia frame from the other group buy already. Now the Bottecchia frame is in the current group buy and it's cheaper.
