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

Totally agree with your statement. The only blue and green combo that I would ever consider. Trying to see if I can buy one (despite the other three bikes). Might need to offload a bike to do this...

Cheers for the kind words, the tyres are Veloflex Master 23 Clinchers.

When Vittoria decided to move production from Italy to the far east, some of the (ex) Italian employees decided to set up a new factory, they are indeed hand made in Italy

They also ride so nice I don't plan on using anything else in the future.

That's because this is a thread for hot bikes. Not many Treks qualify.

It is a Chinese frame, indeed although I've been told that it resembles more a Canondale than a Pinarello. I wasn't thinking about getting something that could pass for the real thing; I just liked the frame. As for the components, it has full Dura-ace 7900 including the pedals, chain and BB, SLK seatpost, FSA carbon handlebars and OS-99 carbon stem, Fizik Aliante saddle and bar tape. I added a Cateye Strada double wireless computer; the wheels are American Classic Sprint 350, 32H and they are very light and strong and they spin longer than anything else I have seen_ I routinely pass people that are pedalling downhill while I am just coasting.

I bought the Dura-Ace piece-meal and the total cost of the build was around $2300 so I'm pretty happy with the final result and performance...

Other than the stem definitely HOT! I know in the real world it probably fits best with the stem the way it is. However, in the hot or not thread what fits doesn't matter, it's all about looks. FLIP IT!!!!!

The only other thing I don't like is the seatpost. The white stripes on it take away from the overall appearance.

Absolutely HOT on the Roubaix given the aforementioned stem flip. Seatpost is a detail which should be addressed but overall minor consideration. Well done! I bet it's a dream for a century ride...

I appreciate the comments. Couldnt bring myself to go to the trouble to slam the stem just for a photo opp, knowing it would go right back the way it was. For a 52 year old who may not be at peak flexibility, and was looking for a really nice stiff, light bike which also had geometry for week long supported tours, the fredly arrangement works pretty well. Don't have any need to turn my Roubaix in to a Tarmac. If I start tinkering with the bars, maybe some S Works or Zipp Carbon bars, I'd probably also do a different stem, and drop it a little.

The seatpost is an S Works I picked up on eBay. May replace it with a Cobl Goblr if they ever are actually available, or a Fizik Cyrano would eliminate the white, and go well with the Antares 00 saddle. Frame is also Di2 capable, so who knows what may happen someday with that. Other than that, I'm finding it to be an incredible bike. My Seven is feeling a little neglected.

Oh, the crank slipped a little, and wasn't properly aligned with the chain stay. That's another 5 point deduction from the Eastern European judge, right?
