Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

So you're going to post it again in the hopes that a saddle change will make us 180? Great - let 'er rip.

Considering what you think is hot, I'm not too worried about it.

Londonflu, we do REALLY want to see it again, but sadly, it will never be a hot on here, and I haven't even seen it. Most everyone on here is looking for specific things, and so although your bike might be smoking hot to you, just be ok with that.

You are obviously very young, and will develop thicker and more assured skin in time. You may rest assured that just because you like it and we don't isn't any reason to be despondent or lie. It's ok. That's called life. Like what you like, listen to others when they strongly disagree and you just might learn something if you're not so convinced you are right.

But I do want to see it!

p.s. - the black on black on black bikes on here are also boring to me too. But there is such a thing as too much of a good thing (read: color)

Lol, ok Chief. You could care less what we or anyone else thinks, but yet you pulled the picture because us "effers" are to harsh on our commentary, then lied about selling the bike.....all because you don't care what we think.

I won't lie, I spent a good 30 minutes last night looking through my internet cache to see if I could find it.

Seriously though londonflu, you posted your bike in the most judgemental thread on this site...take your beatings. It's all fun and games at the end of the day, no one really cares.

It still reminds me of mcdonalds tho.

* the correct terminology is "couldn't care less". And methinks thou protesteth too much, if you didn't care, you wouldn't get so upset about all of this. Again, it's all in fun...

I couldn't find it in my cache, either.

It was bad, but we've seen worse.

OP's reaction fed the frenzy. Big boy panties, Oct 2013.

@ londonflu
Dude, the bike is essentially a hipster bike. That type of bike just won't fare well in road. If we had a hipster forum it would probably be wildly popular, but not here.

To be fair, it's definitely clean and neat and hip. But not appreciated in Road despite all it's finer qualities.

It's so close to Hot but that saddle position is making it more slightly undercooked for me.

I think you can automatically upgrade out of Cat 5 with that bike, Isberrios. Sweet. I usually hate matchy tires but it looks nice on yours. Obviously the saddle looks way nose down and a little far back, your stack height is skyscraper high, and you're in your bailout gear (what is that on the back, a 30?), but the frame and wheels are great.
