Beautiful Bikes

There’s a wonderful thread on the RoadBikeReview.com forums entitled, “Contest: Best looking bicycle!” While not a contest per se, it does feature 25 pages of gorgeous two-wheeled machines that are forum members’ actual rides. Consider it some of the world’s best bike porn.

They range from simple and elegant fixed-gear beauties to lustrous Italian art to 90s state-of-the-art aluminum to swoopy time-trial machines and contemporary carbon-woven speedsters. Below are some of the ones that caught my eye.

TurtleShuffle's Seigler.  I really love the swoopy tubes and paint.  Too bad it seems like Wes Seigler is no longer marketing bikes.
