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

Bone stock with Sram RED, Boyd cages, and speedplay pedals. (my guess is racing wheels are Boyd too huh)
That being said. Not hot. Though any black/white black/red cannondale or cervelo usually fairs well on this thread.

Seriously? It's a light, also, the bike appears to be fitted very well. This thread really bottles the mind sometimes.

There's no such thing as a bone stock CAAD10 with SRAM Red or Thompson anything.

You're right, I stand corrected. Still not hot, though.

Seriously, it's held on by a bolt. It's not hard to remove the eyesore from a picture.

This is a Gunnar, it is a plain, ordinary, inexpensive, heavy steel frame, with ordinary wheels and a big ugly flashing light strapped to the seat post
What universe is this?

17lbs isn't bad for steel. Tune mig/mag laced to Stan's alphas are sweet. You should try them.

Inexpensive? srsly? The frame alone is $900, fork another $300. Please go find another universe to your liking. The Gunnar is hot.
