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

^^^ It's not just you. I think some people are under the impression that if it's expensive then it must look good. Not hot.

The one posted above is a little too funky for me, but the c59 and EPS/Q are anything but hideous.

To me, my Colnago is definitely hot but everyone is welcome to their opinion. I realize that it isn't for everyone.

White garage door. early morning, or evening pic with no shadows. I have a checklist for all the rules, I'll be sure to forward it along. I understand the excitement with a new build, but this bike needs to marinate a little longer then it'll definitely be hot. Also, loan him your Boyds for the pics.

Nice bike but it just looks like a custom painted cadd 10 and I'm sure it costs $15,000 more

If I borrowed his Boyds that would be cheating...
