Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ti Habanero is hot IMO...how this looks is why there's something to be said for titanium frames...and this thread is definitely about looks not functionality AFAIK

Crankset needs to go, and the shifter positioning is all sorts of wrong.

My first thought is to give this a hot, but the more I look at it I find things I dont like.

Nice and hot, but....the saddle does look a bit tilted down and too far forward. Wheels and crank should have been staged.

Bar tape, red hoods, bottle cages, red white and blue wheel decals, red cables, and big stem pointed up in the air just don't do it for me. Also, staging needs some work.

Just put new Thomson handlebars on. The white saddle kinda blends in to the garage door.

I really like the bike I just can't call it hot. I am pretty sure that it is the photo because the bike has all of the right ingredients.

The bike is out of focus, also the bike is angled slightly. Think it would help if the front wheel and rear wheel were closer to the same difference from the garage door. I know it sounds like nitpicking but it does make a difference.

To give you an example, I took these photos of my bike using my camera phone. They are not properly staged so please try not to overly criticize them. In other words, I'm submitting for judgement, just as examples.

I like the red accents. Looks great in my book. HOT.

Well done. I like the mix of colors on this frameset, everything flows on this build. HOT.

Would be hot with a silver stem and crank, but I still like it
