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

Close but no...

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

^Not everyone's cup of tea, but I like it. Wheels clash a bit. Is the front run of that rear brake cable a little tight?

baj32161 03-20-14 06:22 AM

I dig it!^^^

LAJ 03-20-14 07:24 AM

Too much stuff hanging off the Kestrel. Could be hot, with work.

I like the Ritchey.

EnzoRWD 03-20-14 07:42 AM

Like the Ritchey. Maybe swap those Fulcrum wheels out and use a silver 32h wheel?

Some not-road bikes, but probably my best chance at reaching "hot" status since my last two road submissions were left wanting

I like those two track bikes.

This reminds me of a light bike from Tron. It's gorgeous.

Sans decals they would look good. At least in combination with this particular frame.

That's a good idea. Pulling at least the 'Fulcrum' off each would help...the 'Racing7' isn't nearly as bad.

Close to hot. The camera angle makes the bars look like they are rotated up, which is ugly. The large gap between the rear wheel and the seat tube is also a bit off putting.
