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

The saddle tilt on all those bikes hurts my chode just looking at them. Other than that, the first 3 are hot, the next 3 are not. The last one is mild.

Also, jumping on the bandwagon, 2002 Tecnos with 9 speed Record titanium group.

The skewers are DT Swiss. They come with their Tricon Wheels. They don't swing out and in to open and close. Rather, you rotate the scewer lever to tighten or loosen. By pulling out on the lever, it releases and you can adjust the position without tightening or loosening. Takes a minute to get used to, but I like it. the weels are alson tubeless, although I am only running Conti GP 4000S at the moment. I think I will give the tubeless a try when racing season starts next year. sorry if I gave TMI.

Finally! A hot bike AND it's Ti! Well done. Really nice! I love the teal graphics contrast against the grey Ti.

Check out the cable routing. It's Di2 btw:



The brake housing actually runs through a titanium tube welded inside the top tube.



The Di2 battery is housed in the seat post.



Probably my favorite thing about the frame is that the labels are all anodized on. Gorgeous:



More anodizing:

I hear ya. 1 kid, more on the way, house, school loans. . .I guess it makes me sad because I totally feel your pain. It's not ALL about the bike, anyway. You're paying a big premium for your nice southern CA weather too. My whole family lives there. I like to visit them from time to time

I was so worried I would disappoint once again. In the automotive world you take pictures at funky angles and it looks good. Apparently what's good for one doesn't translate to the other...

you are close to nice but not there

here is what you need to make it look "good":
road pedals
cut steerer
rotate bars down
slimmer saddle
sexier bottle cage(s)

hot will take a larger investment

here is what you need for hot:
all of the above
sexy deep and/or light wheels

It's a not from me. Cool bike, but the bar angle, uncut steerer, and wheels don't do it for me. Silver Open Pros don't look good to me unless they're paired with a silver seatpost and stem.
