While I agree that the Leader is a NOT, it still lives up to the spirit of the thread, and aesthetics are personal. Logick may think, and probably does think it's hot. It's on the big ring, has an uncluttered background, it's got the crankring side facing us so I think it belongs.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, if he is proud of it that is all that matters, you may not like it but your opinion is irrelevant.
I do believe that there are many things that could be adjusted on the bike and it would allow him to ride better but that is for him to figure out.
Everyone must also remember that each individual's budget is different, some cannot afford new Zipps on a Colnago, this is something to remember and respect.
the bike is looking good! one thing though... the setting of the photo is kinda creepy.... like a underground basement dungeon.. my imagination is going wild wondering what lies under the plywood -with the oddly specific installed thin wood siding to hold the ManOcoque bike in place?

^^ Leveling the picture helps also...
Wow didn't know guys in here were so serious about a picture in a thread ON THE INTERNET.... -_-
As it seems this thread is very important and affects the lives of people I will try to make it up:
2010 Jamis Sonik Track
2011 Unknown LV1 Track
2006 Cannondale Synapse
Hot. I like those clear EDGE decals on the front rim.
I would think that most people would post a HOT bike with the occasional not. seems as lately there are a lot of nots. People even posting their bike and saying ,"My mediocre contribution"!? If you know your bike is nothing more that mediocre, why post it here? post it in the "show us your bike" thread. That is NOT to say that the "NOT" bikes aren't nice, they just dont have that HOT quality about them. I realize people here have different incomes and expendable money to spend on their bikes. I am one of them. Not every "HOT" bike has to be slinging $3000 wheels though. I also understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, BUT a lot of the bikes lately that are NOT's have been hands down across the board NOT'S.
wasn't trying to be disrespectful, just tired of the well known "mediocre" bikes being posted here in this thread. I loved this thread because I could scroll through hundreds of HOT bikes. Now it seems I have to skip through pages to find a single hot picture.
Sorry, Crying done....back on topic.
regardless if this follows BF rules for the picture, this is a HOT bike. thank you for your contribution!
It is a creepy wall though. Not quite as depressing as a garbage can though.

The reason the back decals appear white is that either there was flash used and hit the bike indirectly, or its the indirect sunlight/light source coming from another angle also hitting the seatpost decal which is reflecting white (compare that to the same emblem/logo on the stem which isn't being hit by light).
