Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

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.

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.

This is offtopic, but it's something I've observed about the two road bike forums I read. I haven't noticed this as much in other forums like the race/commuter forums.

I find road bike forums have constant negativivity and insults thrown at other members. Just seem to be the nature of road cyclists. Lot of name calling, judgment of their intelligence etc. It's one thing to post a negative opinion about an object, but another to post a negative opinion about a member. That's what the ignore function on the forum is for or you can have self control and not read their posts rather than spewing your opinion about that member.

I'd rather just have a steel lugged bike then.

FWIW, I'd have to agree with the sentiment that moderator response was disproportionate and, on a couple of occasions, resulted in stirring up much more strife than what was present.

Dood - aren't you the same guy who accuses others for only liking obscure brands, while at the same time touting an obscure brand as your next/dream bike? Isn't this the pot calling the kettle black?
