    Here's my ride with its race wheels on. It's got a number hanger on the frame. I'm a 37-year-old cat 3, got a bit of the old school. It weighs 15.25 lbs with a 60 cm frame.

    I give it a hot!
    You make 60cm look good!
    I'm a fan of the 7800 series too.

    I've seen that bike on a Heroner's ride if I recall correctly. Hot! I actually remember saying very nice ride going up Seminole at the beginning of the ride.

    Thanks, Ricanfred and Ghost Ryder. Ricanfred, yes, I remember that ride -- I think we were talking about the MotoGP documentaries -- Faster and Fastest -- later in the ride. Late August or early September? Ghost Ryder, agreed, long live 7800.

    ^HOT

    Its weird how this is those of were the last years before everything went sloping geometry. You can actually create large frames without massively tall head tubes by doing the opposite of sloping geometry (where the top tube slants downward toward the head tube). Its hell to fit riders with short legs long torsos, but might be the answer for those who are the opposite with long legs and medium/shorter torsos if they want a traditional frame without a tall head tube. I remember my old 1999 5200 in USPS colors and even the small frames had that geometry. very aesthetically appealing in a traditional sense.

    Got possibilities IMO, clean lines and nicely unobnoxious for a Trek..., although I'm ambivalent about the the look after removing only one of Zipp decals.

    Slam the stem. Also, how tall are you? The saddle looks really high.

    Looks high due to the virtual top tube. DOH!

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    I would say the Cinelli is warm. That Thomson seatpost is not helping the matters

    The saddle isn't helping either. Probably comfortable and the correct one for the OP, but it is not hot.

    Cinelli is very hot. So clean. I would prefer a more modern/slimmer saddle though.

    Not a fan of the red chain bolt rings, plastic water bottle cages, 80mm tubes or the trunk or the fact it appears to be staged next to a sub...





    Still HOT!!!
