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

Cervelo's are never hot, too much going on with the graphics.
Giants on the otherhand are hot in a very subdued way.

I think the graphics are on the more subdued side, for bikes...

okay, deep down inside I like the bike.
But it goes against all standards already establised in this thread.
Go through the previous 94 or so pages and you'll see what I mean.

The BH is hot. Even more so because you see them nowhere.

With Zonda wheels and PMP titanium seatpost to replace the generic black aluminum one that used to be on there:

I just noticed this bike.
I rode the Sunday San Antonio ride with this guy whilst down in Florida this past September.
The bike is hot, in a very subdued way.
It's also plenty fast.....

That's a major fail in this thread, on several different levels.
