What Bikes Make You Drool???

For me it is a Colnago C64 in white or red with raw black carbon tubes. I get weak in the knees when I see one.

I've posted this many times but I want it so bad I can taste it (and it has the beautiful steel tang) when I get back to the states in 2024 I'm going to buy one.

IF the S-Works Aethos - Founder's Edition came in matte black & mechanical brifters (dislike E shifting) I'd have a pool of drool.

And the shape. That basso is cool but a very different design as compared to the Battaglin. The Basso looks like a modern bike while the Battaglin is a modern take on a classic design (as stated above).

Like @indyfabz, I don't drool.

But no matter how hot, cold, or windy, I always sweat while I'm riding a bike. So I guess what makes me sweat is a bike I can ride!

I want a new Alpha 7 Velomobile in a bad way. Can't afford one, and I'm happy with my Strada, but damn those things are nice looking.
