    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.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I have to say I thought the same about the saddle. I did get a fit not long ago and it feels pretty good. I am terrified to change it because I'd hate to have problems. Further down the road as I adapt to a racier riding style I'll do a refit which luckily is 50 bucks. Next thing is a Romin Pro saddle to get rid of those ti rails and get some more of that carbon bling

    PS. Granny gear is a 28. I had just finished adjusting the FD
    Cat 6 going on PRO....

    I like the new wheels! Still not a HUGE fan of the red tires but it does work with the frame. I like it


    What i think would really set this on fire FOR ME is:
    First things first, retake the picture and dont take it from below looking up. Be just above the bars looking slightly down. Choose a color of cages, black or red, not one of each. Black hoods. It takes a very special case for me to like colored hoods. I think an all black seatpost or at least one with less white on it would look better. all black tires.

    PS fix that chain

    Londonflu, um wow. Pot? Meet Kettle. Ok, moving right along.

    Isberrios, cool bike. It almost looks like a red Tron bike. However, you've managed to just do enough red but not too much. It sort of works! Not my cup of tea, but you certainly managed to get everyone's attention. I guess I'd vote hot.

    I'd also prefer it without the red hoods, but that's my take.
