Hot r Not

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

I am not a fan of Specialized at all. Something about it does not appeal to me personally, but that has nothing to do with my respect for them as a brand. Just does not appeal aesthetically to me. Despite that, these 4 bikes below are very hot indeed.

Yes, you are correct. I made a mistake when posting the pictures as attachments. I meant to put the one specialized by the steps posted above instead of the Pinnarello. The Others, Calfe and the PF are hot too. Just wrong wording and attachments. In other words, wrong post altogether

Here it is.

That's frickin awesome. I would love an Argyle bike. Not sure I love the logos, but the argyle is cool.

Original (1970) chrome on Reynolds 531. Lined lugs too, also original, though they show a bit of age (inconsequential, IMO):

Thankfully, the original Schwinn Paramount decals are extremely understated - and as a bonus, the downtube lettering came in red, like this one:
