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

That's what I am trying to say here.
Coming from a cervelo rider, I will take that as a compliment.

Hey man don't get me wrong, Sandra is a nice looking bike. I think I going to name my new S2 Sarah when she arrives. BTW, I would only be sweating his Venge because I'm riding this for the time being. Which I still think is kinda hot for such, and old bike, one of the best Treks ever imo, and some agree, but it's no Cervelo.

My new addition. Built mostly from parts that were sitting in the corner of the garage (including the rare Biaach frame ). I think it pretty hot, but it'd be hotter if I had some pedals that didn't clash with the color scheme.

Slap on a set of black Look's, some celeste bar tape and a celeste Fizik saddle, and you have one hot Bianchi!

As it sits it's about 19lbs.
Nice - take a look at the first bike in the thread btw.

HOT in my book.

That R3 looks great, and is definitely one of those frames that still looks good as you get into larger sizes.

I have it there just because I don't have a support team to come bail me out if I get a flat. I'm pretty much on my own whenever I'm on my bike.

I've been working for Endure It! for two years now. It's not a bad place to be day in and day out.

Huh, I just noticed I have seen little to no Bianchis in this thread (after looking through the first 36 pages). Is no Bianchi worthy of the grand epithet of "hot"?

You don't need to ask the Hot or Not question.
