    Is english your first language?
    English is all I speak and even then its not always best. Sorry if I come across that way. I give my opinion on what it would take for a bike to be hot FOR ME. I don't know how else to give my opinion. I have tried to focus on saying "its a not For me" instead of just saying "not". My OPINION is just that, an opinion. Just like everyone else's "vote."

    Just like texting, most things across the internet are easy to misinterpret the way information is meant to be taken. No sense of tone or body language can leave someone's post or reply open to different contexts. I'm a good guy but sometimes my opinions can come on strong. Sorry if I have offended you with any of my comments or opinions.

    FWIW, I agree with 99% of Bianchi's opinions...

    Bianchi's the Simon Cowell of "Hot r Not"-- gives an unvarnished opinion everytime. Nothing wrong with that. The charge juicer lost me at shimergo.

    I really like this bike, the cable routing is a little funky and the shimano bits with the campy shifters is a little odd. Is it a 9-10 or 11 speed? Why use 11 speed shifters with a 10 speed crank?

    EDIT: I see why you went with the routing like you did. Cool brakes.

    Thanks. 11 speed Campy levers will shift 9 speed Shimano, so that's what's happening here.

    I'm really digging the brakes. Good modulation, plenty of power, and they won't pinch the fenders I'm planning to install. The look is an acquired taste though. I will probably mess with the routing and see if I can get it cleaner once I wear through the original pads.

    I've gotten a few longer rides in on this bike now and I absolutely love it. The lighter Prestige tubes and 28mm tires eat rough pavement for breakfast.

    Love the vintage but Neuvations on a Bottecchia is driving me crazy (not in a good way). Love the bikes though.

    It seems like all texts and posts come across way harsher than intended. However, if you can view someone speaking the words it helps me somewhat. I like Bianchi's opinions. Don't always agree, but I'd much rather he (and everyone) be bluntly honest. I agree that sometimes he comes across harshly, but as he said, he doesn't mean it. Just can't help himself. I understand that, because I'm often that way myself.

    And some things DO look awful. If you can't stand the heat... ;-)

    Y'know, its interesting, one of the ways to improve in life is to LISTEN to criticism. Praise is far less helpful in most situations. If we can get past our egos and actually hear the criticism, it's often incredibly helpful. On the other hand, praise does almost nothing for you and can hurt you... especially if it's inflating your ego. But I digress.

    We need more hot bikes! I saw a Calfee bamboo bike at last weeks group ride. It was butt ugly and oh so sweet at the same time!

    It's a not for me. I don't like the integrated seatpost with the Ridley logo in 172 pt type. Just comes across as garish to me. Otherwise, I usually love Ridleys. This one is a bit... in your face. How many times do they need to plaster their logo (and they are definitely not alone) all over the bike. We just need it once. And not that large.

    Sorry, just can't get past that.

    A frame like that needs deep wheels. That's all.
