I think I found the Hottest bike on the planet

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

I've never seen anything like this, all I can say is wow!! But If you have something hotter hidden on your computer post it up.

And hell no, I could only wish this was mine.

Clavicula cranks, AX seat, LW wheels... that thing is going to break if you look at it funny.

I love stealth bikes like that. Nice find.

Parlees are always amazing to look at.

Good call - bike does nothing for me. But after seeing the Avatar of the original poster it all makes sense now...

I think that's a Spin frame, and those are definitely Lews, not Lightweights.

Anyhow, I have to agree that it doesn't really do it for me either. This bike however (found at Weightweenies), oh damn.

Is that REALLY a sensor wire running up the front brake cable???

Other than that, I think it's pretty cool looking but you'd better be a bad ***** rider.

Like a weight weenie is going to take the extra grams for a wireless computer? Or maybe he's just like me and prefers the no-nonsense of a wired sensor.

Those cages only can use Tacx bottles - they are tapered from top to bottom and don't slide out. Cages weigh 9gr. each.

I use em on my BMC - work well.

I assumed it was the 7 pound SPIN bike.... but actually it looks like it is not.

My bad... carry on.
