Now I really am confused. FWIW my Masi reminds me of my Ducati in that I love to just sit down with a cigar and a glass of cognac and look at in sitting in the garage. Guess the site won't let me upload a pic. Oh, well.

They both look like nice bikes with a lot of potential to be hot, which is roughly where I'd put mine (and RPK79's).

I actually love both of them. Thanks to it's steel frame (18 lb bike) and proper fit I'm really loving the Guru.

yes. Am I missing something? Why is that a no no?

I like the Attack/Assault combo (deeper v in the rear)

I think it's totally hot the way it is.

Don't get me wrong, the bike is totally hot, but I felt obligated to razz a bit ;)

Get a Ritchey 88 in the rear and a 50 up front.

Upgrades include dura-ace di2 (7970 because 11 speed junior cassettes are pretty uncommon), planet-x cnc brakes (after reading bianchi's review why the hell wouldn't you buy them...), white and black arione r3, hed 10* stem. I'll probably be stuck with the ultegra crank for a while, since i've got a stages on the other side.

Somewhere out there ravenmore is turning in his grave. Leave it to a cowboys fan to destroy 791 pages of fun.

Not the most glamorus photo, but here's mine! Before you knock it as "Not" note it has tubeless tires and wheel sets and I've upgraded the saddle and pedals from stock. Let me know what you think!

Sorry Bill Walton, you may be a tall legendary basketball player, but your bike isn't hot. It's kinda cute tho. :)

Not sure the WTB saddle 'adds' much.

I'm sure its an awesome bike and fits you to a T...but this is a thread based purely on the looks of a bike.

Typically there are three criteria that makes a bike "hot".

1. Nice set of wheels...something deep or lightweight shallow ones.
2. Saddle to bar drop
3. Slammed stem...with a minimal bearing cap

If your bike has all three of those criteria...most of the time it will get a hot.

The blue Evo is a shining example of what is universally hot.
