    Owning a Fuji myself, I have to like it, but you took a picture of the wrong side.

    I find brifters displeasing to look at.

    ^Oh, and turn your bike around and try again.

    if that saddle was flat and your garmin was erect, I would give it a Hot.

    Bike itself is hot to me, but the saddle not being flat and the garmin pointed up sticks out to me like a sore thumb.

    Would be hot, but:
    - Saddle Tilt
    - Garmin Tilt
    - No pedals
    - Bad camera phone resolution

    I wonder how much the oval carbon wheels weigh? The aluminum oval 330's that came on mine were almost 2000g.

    Other than the few things mentioned and the fact that I'd change the bar tape to black after it got dirty, I do like the bike. Quite a bit actually.

    I was told 1500g for the wheels. I put my old Look Keo pedals on it and with the Garmin 510 it weighed 15.14 lbs.

    Pretty nice overall, looks like it'll ride fast...but me no like the yellow, and the Garmin placement looks rookie. The not so subtle wheel decals ain't for me, either.

    HOTTT... Great lines and the color scheme is very nice. I really disliked the MTB look of the 4 arm spider of DA9000 cranks, but it looks good with this frame...

    I wouldn't normally be a fan of that color scheme, but it works very nicely. I really like those SSTs, and that bike is hot.

    Not a bad looking bike but fire engine red and white, although flashy, is not hot to look at. But, I am sure that this is a nice riding bike. The black Ultegra crank set sort of sticks out and polished aluminum might be better looking.

    a few notes on the Look:

    i knew when i ordered it that it would be a love-it-or-hate-it bike. i guessed it would go about 50/50, but it seems to be a nearly unanimous 'not'. that's kewl. no problem with that.

    i've found that as i've gotten older, i've become more fascinated with the Classics, especially the northern ones, than i am with the Tour or Giro. so when it was time for a new bike, i decided i'd do something to kinda pay my respects to van Looy, de Vlaeminck, Maertens, Merckx, and Boonen. so i did the bike in the Belgian national colors. a bike to honor the hard men. which matches my style perfectly, because God knows i don't bike pretty LOL

    i'm not a fan of the stem. it's bulky and clunky, but it's proprietary. i'm not even sure another stem would fit with this system. and it's not that big a deal to me

    the bars???? plain, simple shallow-drop ergo-bend Italian bars with plain black perforated tape. what's the problem with that? if you don't like the angle of 'em, well, they're really comfortable set right there when i'm in the drops

    Look rings. they look pretty kewl to me

    i guess in some highfalutin' bike races red and yellow paint aren't deemed race-worthy. i find that pretty funny, actually. i'm curious what colors bikes must be to be allowed into those races. i'm guessing that would apply to apparel as well. of course, i think the German, Belgian, and Spanish national champions would have a problem with these color requirements

    so i took the clown bike out this morning and climbed a few Rockies. second best time ever. i rode the clown bike today because i'm faster on it than my Time or my Pinarello.

    y'all have a good ride today

    It really needs the red tires replaced with black...other than that I would give it a hot.
