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

Latest build. Bike Island 'Gravity' frame, Microshift 9-sp, FSA brakes, FSA crank, Sora RD, 105 FD (and without rub on x-chain). Tighter, crisper, faster than my Scott 105 rig.

If this bike had a name, it would be, "Bud Tugly."

It has a lot of personality...

That red is really bright. How come you cut the shifter housing so long? It looks a little excessive.

I can dig it. The red keeps the bike from being a boring "all black" bike.

Does the top tube have a tumor on the bottom of it?? It's … cute. I wouldn't call it hot, though no.
