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

You people should read the posts as much as ogling at the pictures... The name of the building has been mentioned 4 times already and the location twice.

I agree. The current color rings, with the black arms, offset it all perfectly.

aliens have touched down.. they call it the the F'ing Space Station with a pool. When you go there, there are a lot of Asians around, they are considered a different type of people from the caucasians, so i guess Alien would make sense.

Bella Donna

Well here is my Bella Donna up for your consideration. Built up by me from an unlabled Kuota Kredo 12K carbon frame with Campagnolo Record and Chorus 10 spd components. I respoked the Campy Khamsin G3 wheels with Sapim CX-Ray spokes which made them much lighter and responsive. I felt gold and red looked good with the clear coat carbon and added bling to dress her up. Then named it for my dear wife who not only tolerates my bike passion but encourages it.

+1. That (and the saddle bag) are too much. On the other hand, I think the rims and gold accents are nice. Seems like you had a decent concept (adding some color)...but took it way too far. Black saddle bag, hoods, and bar wrap would go a long way in toning it down. I'd change the rings too, but I know that's a more expensive swap. Please do the wrap and bag at least...

That has got to be the ugliest saddle bag I've ever seen. And the red rings with the McDonald's themed tape & hoods is just... bad.

Definitely not hot, not even just a 'not'. We're in fugly territory with that one.

I'll take some of that eye bleach when BoSox is done please.

Bella Donna...

Yeah, well, although I want to give credit for having the courage to embrace color, I have to agree with the above that the net effect is absolutely not hot. Sorry. I struggle to even get to interesting as an adjective; it's really just kind of bizarre, the look.
