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

Thanks...I think that 2002 "blue panels on black" scheme has still been one of the best paint schemes Cervelo has done yet. Then again, I'm slightly biased since it's mine

To recap again. These are the ones "I" would call HOT.

My dedicated racer. No CF, except fork, so that, when I crash, she won't explode. Love my Colnago C40, Tommasso Super Leggera, Masi Gran Criterium, Torelli Express, Raleigh Super Course and SS bikes but nothing rides quite like this S-Works E5 when I want to thrash with impunity.

How about a vintage Italian frame with a modern Campy drive-train?:

^^ Purty! I really like Nate's Orbea, also.

JRennie, your new bike's not bad, but the Rue was much hotter. I have been eyeing that frame; I don't need it but I sure lust after it.

There must be an awful lot of not hot bikes on the road nowadays. Do you see a lot of standard-geometry frames around?
