The New and Improved HotRNot Thread

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

Close, but the shifters and mismatched seatpost ruin it for me.

You must be very proud, but do you really expect a Frankenbuild to get a 'hot?'

Would look pretty good with a silver seatpost and some newer shifters. It looks well set up.

Man this thread is tough haha. I agree with all of you on the shifters - hopefully a drivetrain upgrade is in my near future.

Cheers

I don't even get this. I can't imagine anyone riding this seriously, so I'm assuming they put it together for show, but why use such a mishmash of random parts.

Check the links. It was a poor (engineering) student who couldn't afford a real tri bike, so he built it. That explains the mish-mash.
