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

This should go in a "Best of Hot or Not" thread or something.

Not really asserting that it's hot, but just updating so my legacy here isn't the weird blue tired bike LOL. I'll eventually get to black tires but for now the look I can live with.

Going to leave this bike alone for cruising rides and going to build a more typical all black cervelo for speed. I'll be back.

Finally, something that isn't black and/or white. Hot except the steerer tube obviously.

I'm sorry, but I find that Fuji to be an abhorrent mish-mash of color and weird angles, and award it a NOT

Just noticed the "hell-bent" post, that puts it even lower on my not hot list. But, ride the heck out of it!

Yeah that was a little rough. I like the frame and the wheels. I don't like the white tires or the Thompson setback post (never have, never will).

For someone who isn't fond of Specialized bikes, I'm liking the last two. Well done, jmX.

Nice bike! I'm mainly jealous of the fact that you live in OC. It's a nice picture too.

I threw this together over the weekend, so I can sell some of my inventory. I forgot how nice that frame looks built up. Pearl white Nashbar frame.

You know, the Venge is a nice bike and this one is nicely built up with high-end parts/wheels. Yet, I find the shape and profile of the top tube on the Venge to look more mountain bike-like and less road bike-like. Yes yes, I am sure that the head tube is very stiff as this bike frame is suppose to be all of that, but aesthetically, it does not do it for me.

Not crazy about colored tires but this build pulls it off perfectly with the rest of the black/white mix. Simple and clean but HOT at the same time.

This is as good as a bike can get, also the background.

This is a nice bike! Someone many pages ago likened the aesthetics of the sloping top tube bike to a dog taking a dump and I admit that I can't unsee that anymore, so that affects me. But this is a hot large bike. What size is this frame?? The head tube is so tall (and I'm a 6'3" guy so I get it) that it does take away… Sort of like when I buy shoes, the model shoe looks great, then I pull out my size and they look like skis. So I think this bike would look better in a more modest size, but you can't ride that, I get it. Love the bike though!
