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

Does SRAM not make a crank that can fit in a 386EVO BB?

Ugly crank, too many spacers, whack saddle angle. Imma say not. But there's potential there.

agree, ugly crank, saddle tilt, too many spacers, saddle bag, poor background choice to see all the detail, bad angle of the bike. I think I would go with black saddle, black bar tape if it were mine.

Sorry, Not. Where are the HOT bikes!!??? lately this thread has become Hot-r-STOCK

I'd say it's more like Not-r-Notter. The Wilier above does have potential, just needs some work.

Penny Farthings are hot, but only if the rider has a handlebar mustache and is adorned in tweed (applies to both male and female riders).

I suspect there's more riding going on than picture taking. I've got nothing left to tweak on mine for the time being, but if I could afford a new bike...

The Wilier above will never get to hot for me, components aside I find the paint scheme and frame shape to be "ugh"....

I could get a picture of mine again with the new natural wall tires, could be divisive.

Well this bike is done, everything is dialled in and weighs just a hair over 15lbs with the lightweight tubs, 810, pedals and cages. Pictured with Enve SES 3.4 clinchers...judge away.

This Colnago is a gorgeous ride! Although TBH I've fallen into the camp that doesn't care for the mismatched depth look of the Enve 3.4s (no matter how much faster it makes you go), so my preference would be to see it with the tubs....like this...

The Ridley is not bad looking generally, but not quite hot IMHO...maybe its the over abundance of oversized logos, or the pose with saddle bag, or the red cages, or the steerer waiting to be trimmed...or the combination of all those...I bet it rides nicely, though...25,0000 miles on the Scott. really?

Hot, it's like just the right amount of loud. Not over the top but enough to get noticed. That steerer tube needs to be cut though.

Probably should have pulled the bag, I looked at white, black and red for cages. The red seemed to work better with the red accents in the paint. Rides great but that has as much to do with the 4hr fit as much as the frame.

You had a 4 hour fit and the steerer wasn't trimmed??? This must be a BRAND new bike... wants you to ride it for a while to ensure that it's correct?
