    Ditch those bottle cages for carbon and it is smokin' hot! The red cages are just a little too much. All the other red bits work for me. Overall, it looks like a very well thought out weight weenie build. How light?

    Gorgeous bike. To be fully hot as per the rules of Hot or Not, it needs a slammed stem and better staging. Love it!

    I'll try a proper shot with the stem slammed soon. I broke my back and shoulder in a race 3 yrs ago so this is as low as I can ride!

    I find the photo angle trick to hide the erect stem to be disingenuous and a slap in the face to the high standards kept here.

    Looks great! You like the KEO pedals? I just bought my first Road Bike and can't decide on pedals.

    Yes, I like the red, except the cages as well. Looks great.

    I agree with gc3. I'd rather see a hot bike reposted after every single upgrade than one that obviously doesn't fit the thread. I like to look through this thread and get excited about other "works of art". I hate having to filter through 5-6 pages of mediocrity or worse.

    In fact, I'd like to see some of the bikes from the past that were an obvious hot in their current state. Small upgrades or big upgrades, it's always nice to look at some hot bikes.
    I just reposted, care to comment?

    I'm sure it's beautiful to a tri-person, and it's well suited to it's intended use. I won't even denigrate it for being a Trek. But...personally not to my taste...

    I wouldn't let some tri-freak ride this bike. It's built for TT, pure speed. Yeah, it's a Trek, but the frame has proven itself long standing as a great wind cheater.

    I think the colors on the Colnago are awesome. I think they do understated colors better than anyone, but can also make a bike scream out loud, if they choose. Hot

    If the color on the cages were reversed (black cage, red "buttons"), it would be sizzling. Still hot.

    Dislike for housings, cages, and stem. All of this can easily switch to black and attain hotness. I don't understand why people run stems like that on custom bikes; why not get a taller head-tube? Nice frame though, just a differing opinion.

    As long as the fit works for you, no need to change anything. IMO, the bike looks perfect the way it is. HOT.

    Yeah, if they slam it it will look bad until the steerer gets cut and if that is where it needs to be for them to ride it would be silly to slam it for a photo.

    just goes to show you how ignorant I am...can't tell the difference between a TT bike and a tri-bike....although I of course did notice the limited gearing...lol @ tri-freak...I'm sure they appreciate the nuance that escapes me.

    the rest of your observation was quite reasonable, however (IMHO)...

    Hot. The saddle isn't my favorite, but really that's a pretty minor criticism. The bike looks quite nice. I really like that paint scheme.
