Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I am a piss poor point and shoot full auto user (PPPASFAU). IMHO photos don't really do the frame justice, but the November FB page has some pretty good ones.

Thanks for posting some pics of your build, Herbie53. Looks great. Something about that wispy saddle (is it an SLR?) combined with the stout tubes and the deep Zipps make the bike look like it's all business. I also think the alloy braking surface on the Zipps coordinates really well with the silver Shimano spec. The SRAM bikes we build are all murdered out with black cranks, black brakes, black shift levers and black hubs - yours has enough strategically placed silver to balance really nicely. Well done.

Looks like a Specialized Toupe saddle. I agree with the statements on the polished bits too. As much as I rip on Shimano constantly, the 7800 crank is a really great piece, and great looking as well.

I should just unsubscribe to this thread. Nobody reads even the topic of threads anymore, so about 80 pages back this turned from post hot bikes to post any POS bike you can find a picture of. There is already a "post your bike" thread, which is a stickie at the top of the forum!!!

every once in a while we get a truly Hot bike, but yeah, we need to start voting 'not' more often.

Not mine, but I've been saving this pic to post in this thread in response to comments like the last two. Ladies, and gentelmen, I present you an 11.1lbs $30k bicycle.

either those are like 800c wheels or that is one tiny frame. what a bike, though.

Not. Where did all the hot bikes go? Dgas ...post your bikes. It seems people need an example of a HOT bike.

I already did over 100 pages ago! Besides, my comment was not say mine is hot and others are not, but to point out that clearly we can all agree most of the bikes here are not hot by most people's standards. Again, hot is simply an opinion. There is already another thread to simply post your bike. Any bike.

With that tiny frame I'd be surprized if it did weight more. Now let see a grown up version of this bike.

it's orange...and as such, it matches my team colors. the guy who fitted me (the shop is a team sponsor) really wanted to do it and i let him. it's kind of grown on me, to be honest, although it does make more sense when i'm on the bike with orange kit.
