    You start a new hot'r'not thread, and then you reply with the exact same thing people do in the original thread? haha, I'm not understanding the point to this.

    I think its pretty hot but imo i think the hoods are in a funky spot, maybe it is just the camera angle, and i don't like busy bar tape. This is however the only hot litespeed i have seen... ever...

    I'd love to see this with the white striping of the FSA bits removed so the only white is the actual FSA text. The stripes make it a tad distracting

    I just made a mess in my pants. for some reason this is super hot to me... maybe the wheels... maybe the color... maybe the chrome... maybe it's the crack.

    who knows

    I'm pretty sure they are not.

    They are great wheels though. I might go with blackwall tires next though.

    Hows that then? I think the bike is hot. The difference with this thread will be people are free to give an honest critique, positive or negative. They're also free to inject some tongue in cheek humor. Personal attacks and being an asshat in general will probably still be moderated but if you still don't get it, I can't help you.

    I got some bars very cheaply, and didn't realize until I rode it how tight the drop is. It's not my primary bike, but I still need to replace them when I get the energy & time to go through the hassle.

    They're just guidelines. And definitely not hot.

    Can't tell about the bike from that angle, but that spot looks pretty "trouty". I'd get off the bike and nymph the hell out of that.

    I don't fish. I just thought it was a nice view of the river that most people will never see since it is out in the middle of nowhere on a gravel road. Funny thing is the only times I ever saw anyone out on these roads was when I would stop to take a picture. I stopped three times that day and had three cars go by me (during the gravel sections).

    Nice. One of my favorite places to ride upstate NY in the northern Catskills can be like this if you get an early enough start. More deer than cars.

    How are those tires on the gravel?

    Not ideal. The roads I'm hitting are basically straight so I just pick a line and go; as long as you're not turning the tire doesn't seem to matter too much. I know I'm playing the odds on getting a cut tire though since they're Conti Ultra Race tires and not meant for gravel by any stretch. Although, they are not showing any excess wear.

    I want to buy some gravel specific tires and I know my bike can handle some 700x28 (meh) and might handle 700x32 (mo' bettah), but since none of the bike shops carry much of anything and don't want to just order stuff for me to try out (understandably) I'm kind of waiting on feeling lucky playing the online order lottery.

    Some guidelines:
    1) For best results, stage your bike properly:
    a) against a neutral background
    b) drive chain out with chain on large crank and one of the smaller cassette cogs
    c) cranks at any angle except 90 or 45 degrees
    d) remove seat bags, water bottles, lights, etc. (we really just want to see your bike, not your accessories)
    e) valve stems at 6:00 and, if possible, tire logos properly aligned on rim.

    2) Be prepared to handle criticism and not take this thread too seriously.
    3) If you must criticize try and be constructive and not mean. We all can enjoy a good ribbing now and then and some tongue in cheek humor, but let's not get carried away or make it personal.
    4) A "not" should be followed by a pic of your bike. (Unless you've posted it here previously)

    (if I left something out, let me know and I'll add it)

    I've been through the gauntlet with my bike so I can tell you, it's not that bad. Just have fun, post your ride and let's enjoy.

    I keep getting drawn to the bottle cages, then the other white accents. I just don't think the FSA theme goes with that bike. Not quite hot.

    That's a lotta quill stem sticking out. Bars are pretty high. Not as hot, but likely comfortable.
