    Hoods are like that cause I use that bike to do heavy climbing and it's where it feels better for leverage,not sure if you ever tried climbing w single speed 48x16 gearing . Saddle bag is where all my tool go, pump, tube etc rather carry it on that then on my jersey pockets

    That's nice, but both look dumb.

    So it goes in the Hot or Not thread.

    PS - the yellow one is close to hot, but misses by a stack of spacers

    [edit] this sort of shows it a bit better, looks like a different seat post too...

    Both hot. I'm not a huge fan of the orange, but it's still a hot bike

    What's not to like about the Alchemy. Zipp stem, aero seatpost, and a Handmade in Denver label.

    I don't mind the colors on the Fondriest, but it just seems they added more gratuitous curves than necessary.

    I think it is hot. Usually this many graphics and logos make a bike look way weird, but this one does it well.

    Thanks for the feedback, all. I agree with the overly splashy graphics - almost nascar-ish. Unfortunately, they're sealed under a clearcoat, so no way of scraping them off Other than that, I'm really happy with the look of it.

    Plus you get points for expending a modicum of effort in staging the picture well...

    Haha, well it is a bike I ride on the road, just not the traditional geared road bike accustomed to this thread. I tried the no brake thing briefly. I can do it, but I don't really enjoy it, nor do my knees.

    What can I say... colors that break out from the monotony of other framesets. HOT.

    Presumably because the owner is not a fan of the "solid object" stopping technique.

    The Kestrel looks like it's suffering from an identity crisis.

    Overall, I think it's hot. I'm not a huge fan of the white fork, and the handlebars are also distracting but maybe that's the angle of the shot.
