The Newest and Most Improved Hot or Not

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

IMO, hot is effortless or at least making it look so.
All the lettering/labeling turns me off more than the red trim -a different taste here.

Yes I know it's a bitsa but it works sweet, the aesthetics of the Red bits are a good match for 9000, and one of these days I'll throw 9070 shifting at it anyway. Maybe wait till I can afford the 9170 levers, which look a fair bit better IMO
There's a lot going on there between the wall to wall graphics and the multiple shades of red. Not feeling the seed pod cable. If you have a Jones on for red cable, get some of the smooth sided in a brighter shade that's closer to the red stripes on the frame. Ditch the red brake pads/holders for black/silver. If you feel the need for red in that area, get some red Koolstop pads instead.

Hot or Not Tip, if you ride SMP and wanna post your ride in the thread, switch it out with something that isnít suffering from ED just for the pic.

IMO, jury is still out on the different depth wheels. I get their purpose but Iím pretty sure it ainít this thread.


I get it. I am on the trainerroad plan so 5 days a week on the trainer. When the weather's nice I switch to an outdoor day. Not swapping the saddle anytime soon. I actually might keep it on I can ride in the drops with this saddle way longer than the power I had on. Enve only sells these wheels this way, they're not for looks, which I suppose is the point of the thread lol. I guess my race rig isnt meant for hot or not. I am ok with that

This is the current standard for Enve road wheel sets.

IMO, this rig is all business. A very clean build and everything just flows together. HOT.

Since taking this pic two weeks ago, I've swapped out the Record 11 pieces and JT GT-F calipers for H11 ergos + calipers, SR11 rd and SR12 fd.




A budget build that has exceeded all my expectations.

also, the off-balance 5000 label would be a deal-breaker for me - I'd never buy 'em.

For your consideration. 2020 S-Works Roubaix.

The wheels are not as hot as they could be, I know. And maybe I should've waited until a sunnier day, but no pictures ever do full justice for the paint job, and I was too excited to wait any longer.

Hot, and well staged. Nothing wrong with those wheels at all.

Not feeling the paint scheme. Probably me, not the bike. The colorway has that sheen/look of an oil spill/slick on water.

Edit: If you feel the need for valve stem caps, put some black ones on.

My old Scott CR1, first in climbing guise @ 6.75kg



With deep sections



I am not a fan of the red cables but they're light weight alu and black had sold out. Much prefer the look of a straight top tube too!

It used to have the old eTap that's on the Scott now. I prefer the look of the Red AXS myself.

I no longer own or ride any carbon bikes but damn, this definitely got my attention. It would've been perfect... had it been built up with Campy. Either way, still HOT.

Paint is def hot!! It'll look even better with deeper wheels. Hate what they did with the seattube on the Roubaix, but I've heard it's comfy.

Def need to see that paint in the sun!

definitely hot-ish, definitely extremely hot with some 40+mm deep wheels. Just the shallow wheels with those brake rotors take away.
