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

Very nice

I am guessing a smaller frame size?

I am all for big frames (because I am 6'2) but this is one of the bikes that only looks good in the smaller ones

Thanks! That is a XS which actually runs like a 49-50cm (I'm a short dude, 5'4 1/2 to be exact lol). Most comfortable bike I've ever owned and it also makes it very easy to hold higher speeds for longer times. Look frames are a thing of beauty...

One of the least hot bikes I have ever seen. Sorry. Nothing about it looks good. I know this is the PC Hot or Not, but.....

I can understand and admire what they're going for, but the end result makes me think of a ogre head fused directly to the shoulders, absent the neck. Not a look that I find attractive.

Why? He could have a 1995 iron horse that is ugly as all hell. He can still say your bike is a Not.


For what its worth I agree. No offense meant but it is a hard not for me.

Of course it matters. When someone tells you that there is nothing that looks good about your bike it's only fair that they post whatever it is they ride.

I like the stealth bomber Look. The larger versions of that frame definitely look wonky though.

Your rear wheel looks swollen. I am going to have to give it a not till you get that checked by a doctor. No one likes riding something that's...dirty....down there.

It's absolutely filthy down there. Course, I'm a dirty boy, and would have it no other way.

Some people had trouble adjusting to the new non-volatile atmosphere of the thread. Old habits die hard.

Carry on.

Many upgrades recently. I've installed Ultegra 6800, Sugino OX901D crank, Zipp carbon cockpit and post...Selle Italia saddle, Nokon, yada, yada, yada...I gotta lower the hoods a wee bit. I argued with my mech he said, "They're flat here..." but, I want them lower on the hooks by a hash and a half...When it comes to hoods...do it yourself.

You all have my permission to be mean if you'd like, no sunshine up this arse required:

(Oh yeah, chain is on the SMALL ring...THE HORROR!!!! )







Cool. The cable housings are starting to grow on me.
