By the way, for some reason they came out at a angle, so the saddle looks as if it is much lower and the handlebars are much higher than what they really are. Don't know why they came out that way though.

595's are always hot - esp. in black.

edit: what kind of pedals are those on it btw?

Thanks.

Pedals are Aerolytes!

Edit:
Why is it that people repeat all the pictures over and over to just say HOT. Maybe just re-post one of each to save web space and help out the people browsing in slower speeds.

I kind of like reposting all the pics for the sheer unadulterated bike porn affect. :)

ravenmore 08-28-08 09:20 PM

Btw - aerolyte pedals are cool and very unique, but a pedal with a broader platform will probably smooth out your pedal stroke a bit.

You do realize that the computer doesn't keep downloading the same image over and over again, right? If somebody posts and image and somebody replies including the image, it's the same image, it only needs to be downloaded once...

Thanks Vic, I can't even describe how beautifully this rides, even with the crappy Ksyrium Elites it came with. It will be a while until it's done though, I decided that instead of buying a new set of Attacks or Assaults that I should have my rear Cirro wheel converted to a Campy freehub body. I figure it will be a couple of weeks until the parts show up. Perhaps a set of Campy DV46T is in order for next season.

PS: I love the Orcas. I think I may be more fond of your older bike due to the\ paint scheme, but the red skewers on the 2008 are a nice touch. Please tell me you didn't sell that frame off when you bought the new one.

I rode with LOOK pedals forever without issues. It is the only pedal I have used before the Aerolytes. I figured I give these a try for the weight saving only, and can tell you I a not only pleasantly surprised (I was very skeptic about them) but also very happy with them so far after 5 months of use. Likely to continue to use them in the future.

As far as the web space comments, I did not know it does not eat up more space. My apology. However, it does seem redundant to have pages and pages of the same pictures over and over to just say hot or not. Given the bikes posted in this thread so far, I think it would be much easier to just point out the ones that ARE NOT hot as the list would be much much smaller.

How about this...hot or not? (Looks only...not politics).

Bikeforums is an exercise in redundancy. I thought we already covered that all topics have already been covered... :innocent:

Very hot!

So far the hottest bike to me would be the Look 595, that is definitely my dream bike.

I guess I will settle for the Orca. . . . . :rolleyes:

Vic, what skewers are those on your Orca, think those would look nice on mine?

I've got a buddy who rode with a similar type pedal - the name of them escapes me at the moment. He's on my team and I've spent a lot of hours riding with him. His pedal stroke was real choppy and jerky. He's a really strong rider too. He just got some Keo Sprints and his pedaling has smoothed out tremendously. I think anything with a broader platform would've helped - he just happened to go with the Looks. Anyway, that was the sole reason for my observation. These pedals maybe different.

Politics aside, a beautiful woman.

Add in that she is a 'powerful' woman, hot as hell!
