Hot r Not

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

LOL! I agree entirely. The Fuji of P perhaps? a side note, for 80% of the track going population (myself included) the mid engined platform is far easier to extract speed through cornering than a gt3.

Hope this isnt derailing this thread.

Love how you managed to show off your car in the Hot r Not ROAD BIKE thread. What on earth does that car have to do with the color or components of your bike? Wrong forum? Permaban?

Car is hot, bike is not. But..............puleeeeeeeez.

Fair enough, I thought all velocity heads like fun things. Improper assumption on my part. Pic removed. Didnt mean to enter this forum like this. Tough crowd.

I like the Uncropped photo better on the allez. As someone else mentioned, the brake calipers really pull all the colors out of the frame. If you have plain black calipers, I dont know if it would pop like it does. I dont know if i would have had the guts to take that risk if it was my bike. Kudos for doing so!

You have to post a recent pic of your bike.
It was your bike to turn me on to that frame.

I have another submission for your consideration. I think I have followed all the rules. Just built it back up, freshly painted. I am posting two pictures; one on everyday wheels and one on race wheels. So what say you: hot or not?

Nice looking bike!
Its almost hot IMO, something about the white tape that's throwing me off maybe.
I can't pin point what it is exactly but theres just something about it that makes my think twice.
