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

Well - I have the same saddle, so that part is okay. Otherwise, IMO it is the biggest waste of spending on a nice Colnago that should but doesn't rate HOT in this iteration...color scheme not to my taste is all...

On a side note that Colnago is a beautiful bike just a very recreational rider setup. Nice components, beautiful frameset, poor pic.

I won it by guessing 8 or 9 out the the 21 stage winners right in the TDF at a contest for Hi-tech bikes here in SD. It was a nation wide contest…very cool to have actually won something in my life.

The blue is actually better in person, either way it's a team bike that matches our kits perfectly..so I really can't complain with the deal that we got.

Ahhhhh man I can't believe you actually answered it (I knew how you got it) - I wanted to see who would be the first that said the link didn't work.

That's a painted carbon fork? Or a Ti fork?

Painted carbon fork made my Moots. Yeah the saddle is actually leveled, gotta take it outside for a proper shoot, the lighting was too dark as well.

Hipster wheelsets are sold with MSW on the front wheel only ...

Wth? This was from yesterday I did "stop". Why does something I said yesterday bother you so much to mention it today? I was just wondering about his bike ...if he was telling the truth about it because I don't know because I'm new to the whole cycling thing so I asked people on a cycling often online wow. I'm sorry if I offended/annoyed you with tmi but I just meant he could have afforded to buy it and not for it to be given to him...

Chalkshot,
Try not to fret over what was said. The Hot or Not thread will bust your balls, (boobs in your case) over the smallest thing. It's the nature of arrogant bikers the likes of mrhills. You did nothing wrong, except hook up with this ex of yours. Just ride and enjoy!

Hot, I like how the stem is parallel to the front part of the bent top tube. Works well.

Hahahaha you said boobs...
Truly fast guys don't ever tell you how fast they are nor, in most cases, have an arrogant attitude. Some of the nicest guys I have met and are friends with on the bike have UCI CT beside their team name...
