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

Those two Ferrari's are odd.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but are these Chinese frames? It's odd that you refer to each bike by its group rather than its frame.

The forks on the red frame appear to be pinarello and seem better suited to match the pinarello looking seat stays on the black one.

Both bikes appear to have the Ernesto Colnago decal when clearly they are not colnago frames.

Like I said before , no love at all. Well back to lurking status. But before I go, the origanal fork is leaning against the wall behind the Black bike . It was so stiff that I changed it out. And sent that out with the frame to get repainted since I had a young daughter who found a sharpie and decided to decorate it. the origanal color was yellow and naked. The Frame will jar out your teeth, it is as I said before a prototype as shown on the frame. it does not have a forgiving strand of carbon on it. when you get off it you want to throw it! Then you look at your results on your Garmin and wipe it off and kiss it! So back to gawking and leaving judging and riducule to the experts.

You don't have to go back into hiding because some people on the intarwebs didn't like your bike. I know my bike isn't hot, so it's not in here.

Thick skin is good to have, especially on this forum.

Good post, BUT what about the brand/provenance of these frames.... I mean, if you posted them here the least that you can do is answer that.

I think the black bike is smokin' hot. I'm digging the aesthetics. The red one? Not so much. I fail to understand the infatuation with gold-colored chains and other parts. They remind me of...



...but to each his own.

Well, according to the red one, they're made of Aluminium-Carbon Fibre-Ceramic-Titanium-15.

No idea what that means, though.

my question was rhetorical, a simple yes they're Chinese with Ferrari and Colnago stickers would suffice. Personally I think it's cheesy to put stickers on a frame and try to pass it off as something it's not, but it's your ride so do what you like with it. You did post in the hot or not thread so you must be looking for a critique. I'm gonna go with not solely due to the decals. okay not soley... I don't like the wheels or tacky gold either. Suck it up a bit. I had a roubaix posted somewhere in this thread that received a resounding not.

MY two submissions:

'08 Cannondale Six 13 and '07 IF Titanium Crown Jewel




And I ride this one as much as anything else, a German "house brand" Columbus SL tubed bike with Super/Nuovo Record group. The workmanship and brazing on the frame is superb, it was likely outsourced to an Italian frame builder. Paid $150 for it to a British Soldier who had no idea what he had, was using it as a beater bike.

^^With a more attractive stem, and no red tyres, that might be a hot. Saddle slammed back on the rails is also a little odd, but I guess that's just long femurs.

I would probably ride your "house brand Columbus SL" bike most, but the IF is the hot one.

Although I still like the red treads, they didn't work out as well as I thought they would. Once I wear those out, I'm going to switch to black treads. I have a really nice Ibis stem that I plan to switch out eventually. There is no saddle slammage goning on, though.

Cleaned up the old beater yesterday, and put my Spinergys on it. Rode it today on a windy 40miles. I like the look of the -17 stem a lot better since it has a horizontal top tube.

The spacer stack alone is enough to warrant a not. Some nice parts though.

Back to lurking status?

Personally I like your black bike, but the Ferrari sticker has to go. I find your red bike to be very Italian flair which is cool to, just not my thing. Remove both the Ferrari symbols and I would say hot to both, even though I'm not a fan of the red bike.
