    Unlike the Ridley with its arched back look, this bike has absolutely nothing wrong with it aesthetically. I give this an unequivocal HOT. I don't even care what gear it's in. Yes, I even like the 'system' look of the stem and crank.

    Plus, go through all the trouble and expense to get an aerodynamically engineered frame but then put on wheels that have been proven sub-par in aerodynamic testing... and get shifting that is supposed to be the best of the best especially in the front and put on some boutique crankset. This bike reeks of purple anodized parts in a new millennium.

    i did qualify it with a "probably." if thats comfortable and powerful then good, but id definitely at least try moving down and back from there.

    full disclosure: i recently moved forward and up and and am much happier for it. im still farther back than that though.

    2cm of drop isnt too bad as long as youre stretched out a bit. that is more than 2 or 3cm, but its far too short and well into sail territory assuming normal proportions.

    Hey Low Cel: Can you nip up to Canada and take a photo of mine? Perhaps then it will attain the coveted "hot" status.

    Edit: Woo hoo, I got a "hot". Thanks UCI!!!!!

    Never been to Canada so sure, just send me a round trip airline ticket and I'll be right up.

    If I was going to steal a picture of a Colnago to claim as mine it would be a much more expensive one.

    True that!

    And by the way, I do not need your photography services as my bike has been deemed "hot" (even if for the wrong reason). Thanks for the offer!

    Lets start with ugly and heavy wheel set, get rid of the stickers (how do you name a wheel set pro lite and have them weigh 1900g? http://prolitewheels.com/cgi-bin/Web...a/page?id=7410) White handle bar tape and white seats are for people who do not ride and are never hot. Just want to mention that the frame is cheap and only a 12k carbon weave you can buy a complete 105 bike for $1400.00
