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

Not butt hurt at all.

Ask Bianchi10 for the OCP rules

I've never seen someone throw such a fit for getting a not. It's not even his bike too.

This is rich.

That makes sense(strangely).

BTW, the owner of that bike is about to turn 61.

Bianchi10 seems to be a good dude. Just need to abide by the rules on this particular thread. Co- Motion makes some nice bikes, but that green is horrid.

No fit thrown. I simply disagree with many opinions.

I think it looks good(minus the stem/spacers).

We have drastically different opinions on Bianchi10, but I'll never hold that against you.

I thought Rule #1 is you're not allowed to express a positive opinion about any of your own bikes. Seems like a surefire way to get slagged.

Other than resembling a Slurpee On Wheels color-wise (and maybe being parked someplace that looks like La Jolla), I think the Co-Motion is okay. Tall folks gotta ride too.

False.

For proof, I quote my own bike, which is in fact made of metal, with high spoke, non-deep dish wheels, followed by a few comments.

Many smiles to you.

Not La Jolla, but AZ.


As large as this bike is, it's probably too small for the owner.

BTW, I like the color.

Good for you, and I'm not upset either.

Just because I disagree with you, doesn't mean that I'm upset.

A "happy" stem like mine would help with both of those problems. Removing spacers would make both worse.

I am pretty sure that it is only a bad picture of a nice Co Motion.

It might have potential, but we can't see anything.

Not.

Show it as it currently is in a photo where we can see things and that might change.

"Hot" begins with quality Ti and meanders elsewhere.

My opinion but I don't really care about dissenting views.

I'm no expert, but I thought this thread was "supposed" to be nice pictures of "ideal" bikes - sort of a photography as art thing. I love my bikes but would never post them in this thread, they don't fit the mold. Don't take offense if you don't get the reaction you hope for.

exactly.

All my bikes are FUGLY, and mostly stock, which is a big no-no when it comes to hotness.

+1 (kinda). I've done some upgrades and have decent looking bikes (IMO). But I don't think they are 'Hot' or anything special and this is a pretty tough crowd. I'm sure my spacers and limited saddle-to-bar drop would get slammed. Can certainly be entertaining in here though...
