    Not if you use a carbon hair dryer - then it's fine.

    Which saddle is that? I thought you were on the Spec Romin Evo? Think my Toupe RBX is just about done and about to start the search...

    Hot as always!

    Thanks Robby. That is a Specialized Romin Evo pro. I have ridden a toupe and though it wasn't bad, the Romin Evo has been great.

    The ****** level in this thread is unbelievable. I'd be interested to see those who post comments like the one above include a photo of their bike for similar ridicule.

    1. This is HrN. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
    2. My Look is in the shop... don't worry babydoll, I'll post her when she's ready.

    Yes, it does look comfy. Ride the wheels off it and enjoy yourself!

    So you don't actually ride or have a bike to put in this thread? Nice!

    I can stand the heat, I just can't stand ******s.

    If you love it, RIDE IT! Why I didn't critique anything and just gave that wonderful response is that it's not staged in a good manner. Try staging her first... better lighting/background, lose the bottles and bags, etc. This is HrN, not the What road bike do you have thread. We are supposed to critique the bikes here, and to do that, it helps if we have a good picture with decent staging.

    Maybe try taking the bottles out of the cages, all the bags for hauling your garage with you on a ride, lean it against a wall and take a real photo of the bike. That will help.

    It looks like a nice gravel grinder, I like the gray and orange, but right now it looks like someone slapped road bars on a mtb and called it a day.

    Original plan is to wrap the bar in white, but I'm kind of thinking black gives it a nice balance. What do you guys think? White tape/ black hoods, or black tape/ white hoods? Got the new invisisram chain and cables, sorry it's in the small ring.

    Not digging the logo on the seat post. And you need to cut the tube. Think you could go either way with white or black tape... if going black, you might want to try a black saddle.

    All that said... I'll give it a hot.

    I like it, but I'm partial to white bikes. I'd go with white tape. IMO the only​ color for hoods is black.

    gadabout, I didn't know ANYONE was partial to white bikes, lol. So good to know you stand out.

    As to the criticism to that gravel grinder, uh, this is the ROAD cycling Hot R Not thread, so obviously it's gonna have to be smoking hot in order to garner praise here. And that's no *********, whatever that means. That's just as plain and obvious as the nose on your face.

    Now, more HOT bikes, please...

    Ray, I'm glad you posted it, because it is a very different bike. Lighting is awful and I can't tell too much but I actually like the orange/gray look to it all. Not my cup of tea, and certainly not HOT, but an interesting bike, nonetheless.
