    The Canyon is near perfect.
    Rob13's TCR is very hot.
    The TCR with Di2 is also hot, but not as much my color/setup preference as the other.
    The Cube is hot in the picture without the add-ons. The basic form of that bike is quite attractive.
    The Bianchi 928 could be hot. It's hard to tell...

    So it is, hadn't actually noticed. To be honest if I lived in the US and wanted a high quality alu frame I'd just get a CAAD10.

    I'm sure caads are fantastic performers, I just like to go against the grain a bit with my bike builds. I've been a little turned off by some caad owners as well which sort of instinctively makes me cringe every time I see one. Dumb I know but hey, there's lots of good alloy frames out there, I can dislike one for stupid reasons and still have plenty of other options to choose from.

    You could get a Spooky, or a Tsunami. Or sticking with the Germans, a Focus Culebro. I'd choose the CAAD though.

    The Cube has potential. Pino on the other hand is so much over the top that I don't see much hope in it.

    By this one. If you mean the Agree. I like the Stealth Black but not so much the red one. I think they are nicer frames than they look. But many would say that about the frames I ride.

    I don't think the Pina looks bad at all. IMO, the graphics on the wheels kind of push it over the top. If the wheel stickers were to be removed...it would look a bit more subdued.

    that BB bluster is insane. I'll say hot but with black bar tape it would look better.

    it's 17.3 lbs with the powertap, pedals and cages. It's a large frame, but with the bb and top tube being 5mm lower, it almost resembles a 56cm.

    the guy who ran the internal wiring for the Di2 tried to convince me to go black saddle/tape

    I like the white saddle/bar tape combo.

    The Gallium is a sweet bike, but that seat post has got to go. I'd replace it with a Fizik Cyrano or something. Also, I think I would prefer black tape/saddle and different wheels than Zipps, or at least FCs.

    I would say that is a hot bike, Argon 18 makes some nice rides.

    So beside the seatpost, saddles, bar tape and wheels, you're good with it as is?

    I thought about replacing them for a nanosecond, but it's pretty tough to justify the $370 cost when I already have a set of perfectly good working pedals. You can't see them when I'm riding, so I'll take licks in the hot or not thread and save a few bucks.

    Fair enough...but it had to be noted.

    The seat post is really the only thing that needs to change. The rest are just preferences.

    Frankly I was surprised that it wasn't caught on the first post.

    Finished it up, light years ahead of my old road bike. Shred away.
