It was supposed to be sarcasm. I guess it didn't come across that way. BTW, I gave pretty serious consideration to an Ellsworth Flight when I was shopping for a new bike at the beginning of the year. It's going to be on the short list when I convince my wife to let me buy another bike. Enjoy.

I don't think it is so ugly, Cipollini is riding it next season, and he is mister fashion in the cycling world. He has done alot for modernizing attitudes in cycling.

Don't your seat and tape look like that?spookyload

If not go out and ride it more. That is what happens to a seat and tape when they get sweat on. It looks well used to me. On the other hand, if he ridden those wheels as much those tires would look brown. So in summary it is a ridden bike with picture wheels.

I kinda like it, very loud, unlike my very subdued black Trek. Dag
not so badDog

I've seen much worse. As a pro bike, not so bad. I don't think I'd take it to my local century, though.

No stealth points, that's for sure.

I bought those same tires, but never mounted them. They clash with my bike paint horribly.

Colnago Geo (or any Colnago for that matter)- just hideous.

Not my taste, but not ugly.
Kinda badass, actually.nigel

Sure, the seat and tape are well worn, but the bike's a typical pro-issue number. I'd certainly take it if it were my size.

Gaudy for sure, but I like the paint job/color scheme.

To each his reach, I suppose. :)
