    Yep, the bars were recently lowered. I will be cutting the stem down when I upgrade to force groupset.
    And I know, I am not a photographer for a reason. I write code, not take pictures. All I can do is follow the photo taking rules, point the camera and hope for the best. Lol. But if these are the couple of things holding me back, I consider that a great success in this thread

    Yes M_Whales, a level would have helped. I think I took that picture sitting on my workbench.

    @bianchi 10...you say that, but this rules start making sense, and then you stop posting pictures. At least until a great photo is taken. I've had a couple of bikes with 0 acceptable photos.

    wrong side
    too much angle

    still HOT

    I don't mind the "nots." The Gong Show would have never worked without those that were obviously unfit to perform in public.
    It's the spandex.

    Dude, your bike is one of the most tasteless builds I've ever seen. His words weren't enough to describe how ugly it is.

    As it seems this thread is very important and affects the lives of people I will try to make it up:
    Not, but just barely. I'm not fond of the 'breaching whale' appearance of the dogma but otherwise the bicycle is extremely clean and functional in appearance. Also, pic is out of regs.

    Not really... the Venge and Tarmac have the curvature further forward, giving it more of an airfoil profile... the dogma has more of a constant radius curve through the middle of the top tube, making it look like an arched back.

    Eewwww, yea, point the ends of your bars so they aim at your rear brake bolt and things would look much better

    I have never seen a Dogma that I didn't absolutely hate.

    Until now..............

    Hot!!!

    I'm not sure how this happened. Dogma's are my absolutely most hated frame. But this one is very nice. Good job.

    It's been a while since I've seen a white turd. I don't get the allure of those Pieceofcrappos. Looks like someone place a lighter under a model bike.
    op
    The Leader build is an aberration in the face of humanity, but I'm curious about the frame. It looks like it'd be nice 'n stiff with the seatstays going under the toptube like that. Is that the case?

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!
    Good post, you're back in my good books now

    Logick's bike needs a serious case of bike viagra.....don;t even get me started on the parts, it looks like you pieced it together in the dark. I would rather walk a marathon in sub zero temps then ride that bike a mile in the best of weather.

    Maybe. He said he'd switch out the alloy ones for the carbon fiber ones to save weight. He said the grams count in the end.

    I'd love to watch what would happen if you were moving fast & on the hoods and had to hit the brakes hard.
