Who makes the sexiest road bike frame?

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

Specialized? Specialized?!?! There must be a lot of Specialized owners on this forum. Those are some of the ugliest bikes I've seen. From their tube shapes and sizes to the boring azz paint schemes (the matte black on black is decent) to their garish S P E C I A L I Z E D logo...I need eye bleach stat! If we are just talking about "sexy" they should be at the bottom of the list.

Bianchi, obviously. I mean, it's no contest, and it's weird that you didn't include it in your poll. How on earth did you come up with four American bike companies and only one Italian company? Are you simple, or just ignorant?

For a major manufacturer, I'll vote Bianchi as well. I just purchased a new Infinito. Its a great bike, and I love it. It was literally the bike that caught my eye when I walked into the store (I was actually more interested in a few Giant models). The design is just gorgeous.
Obviously, there are some of the custom shops that will consistently turn out better looking bikes.

Specialized also has nice lines, but their paint schemes don't seem to have the same care as the overall frame shape.
