Hot r Not

Notices
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

Are the skewers actually pink, or a faded red? A friend has been looking for pink skewers for quite some time.

The Ti skewers have a pink anodized finish and I bought them from Amazon.

Now that I've just about got this sorted out to what I want, I'll throw it out here too.

Let me have it!

Bars have kind of an odd retro shape, but otherwise very hot.

Hot-ish, but those bars look like they were shaped by a kindergartener.

Uncanny how two consecutive bikes posted in the Hot r' Not thread have 90's bar shape. Modern bars with flat transition to the hoods are so much more comfortable.

After 1000 pages, the topic should be resumed in some points.

-Bags destroy the look of the bike.
-Retro bikes are so ugly. Its like old muscle cars owners that think their car is hot. Its not. At least the majority of them.
-Big frames are also ugly. They just look weird.

LOL, no argument there. But when you ride around 20 different bikes it get's pretty expensive trying to put your favorite bars on them. I normally just deal with the shape if the width is OK and the drop isn't too large.

^ 0/10. There is nothing hot about a bike that's too small to see.

Here goes nothing, freshly built. Still messing with seat height but that's pretty close to where it will be, maybe slightly higher.
Also, debating on what stickers to use, if any. Leaning towards the black (a bit more understated).

In my haste I forgot to line up the stems. Please forgive me!

I agree. I wish this web site would get into the 20th century and allow you to upload a photo and the upload process size it correctly.

Bike is cool, but not hot in any sense of the term. Leave the stickers off.

Gorgeous. No stickers, please ... it has all it needs except mileage. I would be happy to ride it for you.

Correct. And that Empire State Building's worth of spacers doesn't help.
