    I do have to ask though, do you really find the hoods comfortable pointing down like that?
    thanks for the comments. the hoods and bar angle have also been adjusted after the pic was taken. you are right. it is better slightly higher. let me see if i can take another pic this week.

    Haha, I saw the Trek, but it was from a while back and my browser had been sitting on the page. By the time I got around to clicking on the thumbnail it was gone... O well, apparently it wasn't Hot anyways ...

    Lol
    It did get deleted, I think you hurt his feelings.
    Looked like a Trek 1.2-1.5, it was shot in sort of a overhead angle. It was placed in a stand, & the background was quite busy.

    Black/blue/white colorway, 56cm+.

    This is just wrong. Cannondale frame with Bontrager wheels and Specialized saddle?

    Granted, I can understand. I'm guessing you got the bike from a Trek Superstore, which explains the 'Dale and Bontragers, and the Specialized saddle is just nice on the bum.

    Level out the saddle and it'll get warmer.

    Nope. Built the bike up myself, originally from a nashbar frame and random parts. Bought the Caad frame, rebuilt, got job at said bike shop and was demoing wheels. Took a pic cause I thought it looked good. And the seat is level and very good to my bum

    The CAAD is hot. I'm not mad on the shape of the bars, but that's just a niggle. Is that a long cage RD? Funky skewer handles too. Needs a better photo to do it justice.

    If saddle was not too far forward, yes.

    This is not the "Up-to-date-tech or not" thread. I'll admit I'm a sucker for chrome forks, and if you rebadged a Denali with a Columbus sticker I'd fight its corner on here, but the red-and-yellow colouring, vintage Dura-Ace group, and leather saddle are all hot in anyone's language. My only criticism would be to title the bars forward to get the drops level. Otherwise, that's a gorgeous piece of bike.

    The picture leaves much to be desired, but that won't keep me from giving it a hot.

    Question is hot or not. It is not.
    IMHO

    You said it was hot 20 years ago. This thread is littered with steel framed 20 pounders with downtube shifters and 42/52 rings. Why has this one not held onto its charms IYHO?

    ^ What?! Motorola StarTac cell phones were blazing hot 15 years ago. Today... eh, not so much. Just because it was once hot, doesn't mean it always is. I appreciate what he's saying. I mean, I was probably hot at one point... ok, never mind. Bad example.

    hot bike. but in regards to the photo itself.....maybe too much contrast. at least for me since the advent of instagram, overly contrasted photos or instagram 'look its an old photo, but really it isnt' type photos are done for me. Its the auto-tune of the photo world. not saying this is an instagram photo...i just don't like too much contrast. although +1 for have a blue door. The bike however....hot.
