    My poverty CAAD10. I switched wheels to Zipp 101s that I scored dirt cheap and added a 53/39 instead of the 50/34. I think I should be able to attain "hot" status now, but probably need white Zipp stickers to get there.

    I live in Dallas and Austin has the most severe climbing I see aside from vacation to New Mexico, so I decided it was time to man up and get the 53/39. I'm still slow and weak though.

    If you must do something with the stickers, just take them off. I don't know that it's worth going to the trouble putting new ones on, but I'd go with white if you did. It looks fine as it is though. Oh yeah, IMO. etc. etc. etc.

    What were they thinking with that downtube? Nice wheels, though.

    Interesting... the bottom of your paddles are lower than the ends of the drops...

    Beautiful bike btw... hot!

    gc3, that Colnago is off the charts hot. I love the classic look of that lugged carbon frame. Hot, and presentation is spot on except for that pesky front valve stem isn't at 6:00?! What were you thinking! …in my opinion.

    And has nothing to do with it's quality. It's the bike I like most among the recently posted bikes. I'd love to see demonstration that any of the bikes here is better than yours for what it was meant for, racing.

    Yeah that down curved downtube, certainly not to please everyone, me included. Or the very curved fork on what looks to me a racebike, almost looks like that fork should be on a touring bike. Not questioning it's responsiveness and to do what Bianchi wanted, it just looks out of place on an aggressive frame like that. I'd expect to see it on a steel bike with a steel fork.

    I'm sorry that trying to get the thread back to the initial friendly atmosphere is upsetting to you, but we really want Bike Forums to be a pleasant place for people to visit and post. Since this seems to be bothering you, I think the best option is to just ask you to not post in this thread again. That way the thread can move forward and you will be spared the angst of trying to come up with something nice to post about the bikes.

    FWIW i thought it was pretty funny and wasn't offended in the least bit. Posted in HrN expecting any type of response negative or positive.

    Did he upset you by saying your bike was not hot? You seem to take things very seriously/personally.

    I didn't say anything that was rude. The frame isn't something I find appealing. Nice bike with great pieces though.

    You want this FORUM to be A pleasant place for people to visit and post!? Sounds like you need to take a better look around. I understand wanting to cut down on the hostility within this thread, but if you're looking to create a harmonious and friendly environment for people to come and go without feeling afraid to speak up, you have a lot of PMs to send out to a lot of people, not just me. I'm not upset that anyone is trying to get things "back on track", don't put words in my mouth. As @redlude97 said, he wasn't offended and took it as the joke it was meant to be, as did a couple others.

    I don't get the hypocrisy from the moderation around here. Just when moderation speaks up and says they will not allow any kind of bullying, i seem to get my head kicked in for pages and pages, while billyD sits back with arms crossed and smiling. Then expect me to just lay down and take it since I somehow deserved it because I am outspoken in one particular thread with my personal opinion!? Ok, good to know. Didn't see you make a post towards anyone else who have been making light if this new "everyone wins" attitude. You happen to miss the unicorn farting a rainbow a few pages back??

    Sounds to me like you need to take it to a p.m. with an administrator.

    The stupid badge was unnecessary.
