    Hopefully I have something threadworthy in a couple of weeks.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    +1. Need to do some fine tuning to the Bianchi I recently picked up, not going to Hot or Not it until it is ready.

    Would it happen to have "888" somewhere in its name?

    Same here LC, I'm patiently waiting for my Noah Pro to come back with its new paint job.

    I agree that their bikes are hot, but keep in mind it's subjective. I think my bike is hotter than many of the "hot" bikes on this thread.

    Frankly, I'm sick of the all black carbon bikes and cervelos on zipp wheels. They are dime a dozen. I will take pictures of 20 "nots" if it promotes getting one hot (and unique) posting.

    All of these very clearly not hot bikes are upsetting me.

    If your first post on the forum is of a not hot bike in this thread, read the thread to see what hot bikes are. I realize it's 501 pages, so just look through the last hundred or so. You'll get a better idea.

    You'll also learn how to set up your bike for best pics.

    I think it's pretty nice, but the stem makes it loose a lot of points.

    I got an 87, but felt that I could have done better with a little more study time. You?

    Not to be a jerk but in his defense there is a "post your bike" thread elsewhere. This thread is for bikes that are HOT or on the verge of it. Do you really believe your flatbar Allez is even remotely hot?

    Did you even read my post?

    A few points I'd like to raise here:
    1)I've been here longer than you and am fully aware of the thick-skin rule.
    2)I was being a jerk in the post because
    3)I was calling pretty much every bike on the page (including yours) not hot and
    4)People should at least read through a bit of the thread to get an idea of what qualifies as hot before making their first post ever being that of a not hot bike.

    edit: Gary beat me to it

    That and the seatpost are its most polarizing features. I personally like them but understand that opinion is in the minority.

    what would you like to see on it? I nearly used an ec90 fork and threadless stem. It would have dropped a bucket load of weight but the fork didn't feel as good under my 180#.
