    do you know how hard it is to get the sum of the parts to equal the weight of the bike? guess what? it ain't gonna happen....

    ...if you really care, and/or you can't believe the pic of the bike on the scale...then there's there's a whole thread at weight weenies where you're supposed to list the entire build by piece with weighed weights down to bolts...trust me, I've done it...an intellectual exercise, albeit a meaningless one at the end of the day...

    Most everything was weighed. I think I could do it, but it's not worth the brain damage. If I cared enough, I'd hang out at WW.

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

    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.
