    Like you said, wheels, black cockpit, black bar tape, white hoods, bottle cages, and remove all the warning stickers. It'll look like a brand new bike.

    +3. I like BMCs, but I never liked the seat tube/top tube/seat stay junction on that bike, and that color scheme is too busy.

    somebody post up a bike, preferably a hot one, so this thread stays on page 1...

    It's the angle of the picture. I've seen this bike in person and it's freaking hot.

    All do respect, I'm not judging this based on the photo itself. Its a not a hot for me Because:

    -DEEP insertion point of seatpost
    -Stack of spacers, though a majority of it is hidden from the drop
    -Stack of spacer + a positive flipped....17 degree? hard to tell from the angle
    -Dont care for the junction point of the top tube, down tube and seat stays.
    -Dont like the shape or aesthetics of what little I can see of the seatpost.

    I'm sure its a fine bike and I do realize that sometimes a photo just cant do a bike justice. For me, this is a "Not" that isn't even on the fence. This is a solid not for me. So even though you say its hot, we will just have to agree to disagree on this one. Nothing wrong with that.

    I will back you up on this. I've never had good experiences with carbon (or other "composite) cages. I don't go with Ti, but I do (and have for nearly 20 years) stainless steel cages. The never mark up your bottles, then never break, they weigh maybe a couple of grams more and I've not dropped a bottle with them. And yes...I think they're FAR more sexy.

    Some people spend too much time worrying about how their bike looks rather than riding.

    Fair enough. However, taste or visual appeal is subjective. I'm completely smug with the choices I've made concerning my bike. I can appreciate everybody's opinion, but in the end, I didn't build this bike for others.

    I did but I'm not going to change anything because of this thread. LOL, let me buy some Arundel cages because someone on the internet didn't like my choice in cages.

    Methinks you protesteth too much. Nobody really cares whether you like the feedback you get in this particular thread. To the contrary, when someone gets their back up because they don't like the negative comments (like this case), it gets a little interesting. If you just want folks to look at your bike without commenting as to whether or not they like how it looks, there's another thread http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ke-do-you-have

    I'm still kicking myself for not buying more than one Cutter (Competitive Cyclist house brand) carbon bottle cage when they were on sale for like $12. There isn't anything about it I don't like (aside from only having one).
