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

Its closer to $10K in Canada.
I'll take the CAAD10 black inc for $3200, with DI2.
Hell I'd take a look @ the Tarmac, or Venge @ $10K.

Edit:
I don't think these welds look all that smart.

Perhaps frames vs complete bike prices?

Yep.
I didn't even know it was offered as a frameset.
I was under the impression the S-Works was an extremely limited edition. Only a 100 made or released I. US (something like that).

Hate on haters
The Madfibers make it look too busy. There are very few bikes they actually look good on.

Only thing I would change is the orange tires. I dig the orange on the frame, but not on the tires.

I say hot and I dig the orange tires.

-1 for the saddle bag
-1 for the tire labels not lining up with the valve stems

I like orange.

Hot!
Love the colors, & the internal routing.

Since this is the Hot or Not thread we have to "nit pick"...
Cable kit doesn't match, maybe go yellow or pink.
White hoods don't work for me.
Saddle doesn't match the bar tape.
Red bits seem out of place.

I see the ZIPPS, Enves and Di2 on plenty of lower end carbon and CAAD10's...whats the difference?

Yeah. I'd call that bike ugly but that insults self-respecting ugly bikes everywhere.

They've got their share of logos, but a part of the reason that they look so gaudy here is the lighting - the CF weave doesn't stand out nearly so much most of the time.

I don't really like those bars in this case, they look too big for that (what i think looks like a small bike) bike, in addition i think the hood position is a little funky, but none of this is enough for me to not give it a hot.

It's just the camera angle, the bars are pro vibe carbon round 42cm
