Hot r Not

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

This thing is the Bees Knees. I wouldn't change a thing.

I could put a Specialized saddle on it and she would still be hot.

Thank you!

For those that may not be a fan of the bike but still enjoy some different bike porn, check the dropouts... It's one of the little details that made me fall for the company.

Maybe it was my computer. Showing on one of the posts now! I love the Moots bikes and I bet they ride like a dream. I also like the look of the brushed and satin titanium. For me, when I was once looking at them, I just would have done a splash of color to break up the finish a bit. Lovely bike

Wait!!!
What???
You are meant to say, "looks like a POS brushed aluminium Giant from the 90's".
your saddle is too high and your bars too low.
Cranks, valve stems are placed incorrectly and you have bell on your handlebars.

What kind of amateur are you???

But thanks.
I love her, she is amazing.

I agree and I am not a fan of the classic looking wheel set at least not on that frame. I do like the frame and Campy groupo.

Whatís up with the red fork and red saddle? Looks like you pieced together spare parts laying around the shop. The extra frame looks like yet another spare part laying around.

The speedvagon is hot for sure. I personally would have picked the top color a darker blue. I am just not sure about the azzcheek hole saddle.

I am not a fan of carbon wheels for people doing anything except racing.
See too many non-racers toodling from the carpark to the coffee shop on Giants with Deep Dish wheels (or even better the guy I saw babying his bike down a very steep descent in 46C temperatures after melting his wheels).

Do a search on the Specialized Allez Sprints. This is one of the tamer looking models.

Sweet! Looking forward to seeing it with upgraded 35-45mm carbon wheels down the line.

Keep your eyes on those hubs.
They tend to loosen off and if you dont keep them adjusted they end up wrecked.
I have a friend who didn't and bye bye hubs.

I love the polished aluminum one. Not sure if they still offer it but it was stunning. I was a Trek guy mostly, but Specialized does a much better job with their paint... that and their contact points like shoes and saddles.
