    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.

    ^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?

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

    I like the Ritchey.

    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

    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.
