    Hot. Personally, I like the red Fulcrums. I have a pair on one of my bikes. Yours nicely pick up on the touches of red on the frame.

    IMO, the only thing I'd change would be the hoods. This RXR is HOT all day.

    The RXRS is one of my favorites of all time. This bike has so much potential. Take off the Cateye and seat bag. No bottles. Black hoods and electrical tape, black(er) bar tape. 45mm+ carbon hoops with no decals (or black).

    I like the C7s and the skewers. I'd love to see SR or Record, but that's my issue. Do that and it's the hottest bike here.

    I agree. I like the wheels. But the hoods are just a little too much... Hot bike!

    Yep. Black hoods and black praxis chainrings would make it hot. Campagnolo would make it better, but it isn't my bike

    Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.

    Finally I've seen a Time bike on this forum! They look sexy as hell, and it is definitely my dream bike (I think ime looks better than Colnago and Pinarello).

    Guru is really nice looking. However I have some question about bike fit. You have a big set-back seat post and the saddle pushed all the way back as well with what looks like a 120 stem. Is the top tube a bit short for you?

    Actually the stem is 130mm! And the top tube is just fine. It is my DNA that is weird.

    Love this bike! I vote hot! The Ultegra crank comes out looking a tad blue next to all that pewterish looking titanium, but that's just nitpicking. Also, while I'm on that, your top tube looks... dirty?

    Is that carbon lugged titanium or is that titanium lugs just painted black?

    It was condensation on the top tube due to it being cold in an A/C'd room and the humidity of the outside once I brought it out for the picture. Lugs are carbon.

    The only thing I don't like about the Guru is the chainrings. They just look cheap. Not saying that they are, but they look it.
