The Newest and Most Improved Hot or 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

Different seatpost, different cage, BINGO!

Funny, I feel the exact opposite. Paint does nothing for me whatsoever but the rest of the bike has hot DNA.

Possibilities, but one cage, and a sideloader no less... Gumwalls are a personal choice.

I give it high marks for having a single decal as opposed to putting it on ever surface big enough to fit one.

My new to me 1996 Eddy Merckx EX Titanium.

And for those people that won't consider a bike hot unless it has deep section wheels, I did this one especially for you

Hummm, well, if you are going to ride with the shallow rims, change out the tubes for shorter valves stems. Although I'm no "fool", I wouldn't consider those Shamals as "deep dish rims". I have a set of Reynolds Alta Race rims I could slap on and say deep dish also.

Ahh I forgot about the short valve stem rule. I tend not to bother as I run deeper rims occasionally too so it saves having to have different types of spare tubes for different wheels. Points deducted though, fair enough.
