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

Bro, I was in your shoes when I first started out on this forum. I thought it was a tough crowd here also. Just wanted to clarify that before sounding like a hipocrit.

BUT..... You posted in a thread that is nothing other than being judgemental. AND You said, "Belittle my bike!" that is like taking the door off the hinges in a thread where the door is meant to be left open. You ASKED for it. Your photo does not really compliment the bike. Aside from the bike itself, the angle is bad, a garbage can in your photo(your not the first to do this, but you could have cropped the photo and even better, when taking your photo you should have seen there was a garbage can in the shot), it appears as if your hand was covering the flash OR there was a light on that couldn't light up the whole bike since the lighting is not even throughout the photo. As for the bike, everything you list....."Fuji Newest 1.0 2011 with upgraded rims, stem, & pedals. The left bar end cap is mismatched because of a crash I haven't had time to update the picture. I got front and rear lights, a computer, and a new saddle." cant see any of that because of the angle of your photo.

Before you go rolling around on the ground throwing a tantrum, take off your skirt, put on your big boy bibs and pull your head up. Take a better photo and repost. Part of the "rules" to making a bike hot is the surroundings....I.E. staging your bike to make it appear as "Hot" as possible, no clutter in or around the photo, good lighting, good angle. A TOTALLY hot bike can be easily voted as a NOT simply because of the photo. This thread was created for fun and all to often people take it waaaaay to seriously. Use your own judgement when posting. If you can look at your bike and honestly compare it to some of the REALLY HOT bikes in this thread than post and hope that the people looking at it had a good day. If you look at your bike and see that it is a nice bike, holds sentimental value to you, but at the end of the day you can admit it isn't HOT and still post, then ask for ridicule, prepare to get your arms and legs ripped off one at a time.

Oh I almost forgot, welcome to the forum!

I haven't had time to update the picture. I got front and rear lights, a computer, and a new saddle.
Is that many spacers safe?

it is probably "ok" provided the fork has an alloy steerer. if it has a carbon steerer then i would say no.

well, "belittle my bike" was a failed attempt at a joke and the poor lighting is because I took that picture when it was getting dark out. I'll probably take a better one later... The lights, computer, and saddle aren't in the picture i posted btw. and thanks for the Welcome.

I know what you're getting at, but unfortunately I don't have a hacksaw so I can't trim my steerer tube down.

I'm going to say hot. Black wheels would be better but it looks like it means business even as is.

Needs 0 setback post. Keep C02 in jersey pocket.

Get different bars or rotate those forward a little bit so you can use the drops without sliding right off the ends.

first of all, your bike doesn't actually look that bad aside from the tower of spacers. not hot, really, but at least give it a chance with a decent picture.

that's not the issue. it doesn't matter how long it is; it matters where you clamp the stem. just because the steerer is really long doesn't mean the stem has to be all the way at the top...unless you need it to be there for fitting reasons, in which case the bike is probably the wrong size (or type). but that's a different problem, i guess.

Wow I'm nervous
I'd really like to replace the cages with carbon ones and change the brakes to black sram rivals (weigh less and would match the other black components

that would be hotter with a more favorable camera angle/perspective.
