    IMO I have to say I Love the bike, the only changes I would make is get rid of the Red on the Wheel set, Use an all black seat and change the chain to black.

    Only thing I would change at that Fuji is bar tape. I'd use black one.

    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?

    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!

    Don't know about pink...but I'd agree that the bike looks good with a bit of color added. I really liked YOJiMOB20's use of blue (rims and bar wrap on the Litespeed).

    You are getting to try before you buy and you are irritated about the color? I wouldn't care if they had pink hubs, purple rims, and gold nipples. A free demo is a free demo.

    well to make it sound even worse then, I'm not even buying. She just wants me to experience different wheels and hubs so I can know first hand instead of having to ask someone else what their thoughts were. I will be purchasing form her eventually, but the purpose of these demo tests are not for buying purposes.

    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.

    Not to my eyes. Not bad for what looks like a tall bike with classic lines, and also looks very roadworthy. Might be better with a black seatpost, but the contrast between the silver post and the black-to-blue transition throws me off.

    Bianchi, be honest if someone else posted that you would give it a "Not" because of the wheels.

    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.
