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

Like the Ritchey. Maybe swap those Fulcrum wheels out and use a silver 32h wheel?

Some not-road bikes, but probably my best chance at reaching "hot" status since my last two road submissions were left wanting

This reminds me of a light bike from Tron. It's gorgeous.

Sans decals they would look good. At least in combination with this particular frame.

That's a good idea. Pulling at least the 'Fulcrum' off each would help...the 'Racing7' isn't nearly as bad.

Close to hot. The camera angle makes the bars look like they are rotated up, which is ugly. The large gap between the rear wheel and the seat tube is also a bit off putting.

A local has a near twin of your bicycle, only difference is the Enve stem, post, and bar. Fire hot, I bet it's heavy.

Sell that one and apply the money towards a carbon version.

Thanks,

I guess I need to work on my cellphone camera skills.

Here's a shot with a set of Wolber profile 20's (tubs) on DA 7400 hubs ( just don't have a front tire at the moment)
