... I like it...

Human beings enjoy surrounding themselves with objects that reflect their character... why should a bike be any different???

A visit to many frame builders and paint shops websites will reveal that not only the pro sponsors go for a bit of flash...

Indeed, we're a bit cheated these days...

In the past, makers offered far more options for paint than today (Trek's "One" project is a joke IMHO). I believe that if we had a chance, most of us would opt for a more personalized ride... after all... we do it with accessories and clothing anyway.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I think it's garish. The Festina Specialized bikes were cool looking. One man's crap is another man's art.

Other than that sloping top tube and that ridiculous long seat post I like it.

I actually like the design of the bike but the paintjob is surely too colorful for my taste.
That bike would look great in my closet!!!! [nm]Elefantino

The Bike is Not that Badlnin0

However, if you think the bike is bad...

How would you like to wear that outfit?

Personally I don't think the frame is bad. The wheels are a bit obnoxious but will probably not look bad when moving. I think the worst part is the zebra bar tape...I have some on my old 80s bike hanging up in the basement...horrible then and horrible now (what was I thinking?)

The whole team is gaudy. They renacted a scene from Eyes Wide Shut with a bunch of topless women when they unveiled their uniforms. They all were kneeling before Cipo. The picture in Cycle Sport was a riot. It looked like some sort of satanic ritual except that we all know Claudio Chiapucci is El Diablo, not Cipo. He is putting up some great results this year though. That was a great win in San Remo.
