    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.



    Lol...it was in the other H or N thread.

    8/10. Almost there. Black clipless pedals, black 105 brakes, remove the rear decal and a racier seat.

    I like the general look of that Soma but as set up it looks like it's a size too small and the fit looks pretty awkward.

    Agreed. that frame looks a size or two too small for the rider.

    I think this thread still gets more views than the "New & Improved..."

    So, I'll post here as well...

    Many upgrades recently. I've installed Ultegra 6800, Sugino OX901D crank, Zipp carbon cockpit and post...Selle Italia saddle, Nokon, yada, yada, yada...I gotta lower the hoods a wee bit. I argued with my mech he said, "They're flat here..." but, I want them lower on the hooks by a hash and a half...When it comes to hoods...do it yourself.

    You all have my permission to be mean if you'd like, no sunshine up this arse required:

    Not everyone liked that evo, in particular the guido chain and loud wheel stickers. But really you need to go to the other HotRNot thread for proper criticism.
