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

Yep, hot bike. Tires need to be mounted correct.

Oh, it's no lightweight. It's about inline with a Dogma in terms of frame weight.

Merckx has some odd angles, and I can't make myself like it.

Giant is hot.

ehh..........

I personally don't like treks, but nevermind that. From what I understand about HrN 101, no saddle bags, cranks need to be horizontal, chain in the big chainring, and chain on a bigger cassette ring. (right now, the gearing is making the rear derailleur look like it's a dwarf). handlebar lower than the saddle, etc. I hate to be anal, but there's a reason why I don't hang around this thread too much.

but that's a lot of bananas. I can't complain there.

that's a lot of coolers.

also there is no way i'm giving any bike a hot if it has an iphone mount on it. It could be a Baum Corretto with the gulf oil pain job (google that) with Lightweight tubulars...but the iphone mount would be a killer.

Does the bike look hot or not? Screw all the silly amenities stuff.

Even with the distracting background it looks hot.

Restage the photo following the above advice, ditch the ipad holder, flip/slam the stem, take the photo in front of a non distracting background then come back to us.

You have a nice bike, but it doesn't look good the way its currently staged.

There you go, constructive advice. A bike can look good despite all the "rules violations".

Well, for a while in this thread it seemed like having a Trek was an automatic not.

Yeah, that's about as silly as it gets.
