Only thing I would change at that Fuji is bar tape. I'd use black one.
what's next? the Fuji has been bludgeoned enough.
So for those who aren't following my "testing new wheels" thread, I just picked up my second demo wheelset today. When i walked into her shop I saw a set of wheels leaning against her work bench and prayed they were not mine to pick up. Sure as crap, they were. I was actually kind of irritated about them being pink. Got them home and put them on my bike. I was surprised that they didn't look AS BAD as I was expecting them to. Not a color I would EVER chose if i were paying for them, but they are just demo's so I am going to ride the crap out of them while i have them! (I was told to throw them in the hot r not thread for a laugh)
I look at it as a win win...Either you love how it still looks and I get a Hot OR you dont like them but cant deny that they are Hot....as in HOT Pink?
I'm a fan of the wheels! And the bike as a whole.

Lol this is true, BUT just like everyone in my thread said before I posted pictures, I thought the same thing..."this has to be a joke!". At the end of the day, the wheels are freaking PINK for goodness sake!!! It does look waaaaaaay better than I had imagined in my head before putting them on for sure!

In that case you deserve the pink wheels (which I kinda like anyway)
i was just giving you a hard time. I look forward to your feedback.
Is my steel bike hot?

Bianchi, be honest if someone else posted that you would give it a "Not" because of the wheels.
lol I bet my wife would love it But then again she also rides a pink mixte-frame BD bike.

Some very nice bikes I see are being ruined by saddle bags. Put your stuff in your pockets! It looks better and is easier.
The Cervelo is hot. The only thing I don't like is the white pedals. I think that the levers would look better in black than silver but I would not spend the money to change them. I like that you did not go over board with various red, black and white accessories. I like the wheels are not over the top with graphics.The black cages blend in I like that you avoided red or white. Nice job.
The photo has some "hot or not" setup violations: Gearing, tire/valve stem relationship
Bianchi10's C'dale with hot pink wheels - Hot (but you knew that already)
Mercier, I actually like it, maybe not smoking hot, but hot-ish
Cervelo, quite hot, funny that I can't stand the looks of those DA cranks but I own the 9000 series which some see are the ugliest ever.
