    As for me, I wouldn't kick that R5 out of my garage. I'm more drawn to a traditional type frame with less of a sloping top tube, but overall the bike looks awesome! I'd rank it a HOT! The wheels and the bike are not overbadged which seems to be more of a rare thing these days. Nice!
    Handlebar too tall, long head tube, thin seatstays clash with chunky rear derailleur, front end of the bike seems oversized compared to anemic rear...
    I don't know. It just does not work for me.

    What you mean is "I don't like Cervelo"...that's okay, I don't either, generally...but this R5 is as good as one of them can get IMHO

    I think that older cannondale is smoking hot. The torelli (my phone autocorrected to "tortellini") would be with traditional bars and a race saddle.

    Well said.

    Even though I dont like cervelo's, soloist assassins Cervelo still is one of the hottest bikes I have ever seen.

    This is why it is not hot to me.
    1-It just doesn't look aggressive.
    2-saddle is nearly lower than your bars
    3-Triple crank is rarely hot, yours is not the rare case.
    4-The geometry of that frame just looks....ehhh boring.
    5-components look cheap
    6-mismatched cages
    7-computer on stem doesn't look good. With all the garmins and "cooler" looking options with out in front bar mounts, computers on stems just look out of date.
    8-stack of spacers

    overall, the bike just looks boring. There is nothing flashy about it.

    The one that looks "floating" between the brake lever and bar drop? Those are either Sora or 2300 brifters with the cables coming out the sides instead of running under the bar tape. I never cared for the look much myself.

    cabling that runs outside the bar tape always looks bad to me.

    It looks hot (or cool if you like) on vintage bikes, though.

    Precisely why I can't stand 2300 and Sora brifters. I think the new 10sp Tiagra brifters have the cables running under the bar tape.

    the only thing worse than Sora is when people say "brifters".
