Hottest bike of 2012, period.

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

Saying "period" to conclude your statement makes you come over as a ******.

IMO, the matte black bikes look good in an ad or in the store, but when you see one out in the road, they look very nondescript, nothing special. Saw one today. I didn't get a great looks as he was riding by but it could have been one of a dozen different $3000 bike or it could have been a spray bombed CL frame for all I could tell.

I dont' know but I sure want those black Reynolds decals for my DV3Ks...the huge white ones are hideous. I've got to go with the OP on the Canyon over the S5 in the looks department...the S5 is no doubt more aero though.

Definitely looks better than the S5 but don't know that I would go as far as saying it is the best looking bike of 2012.

Nothing to worry about. The Italians will bail them out.
