Good looking disc bike? Oxymoron.

That's one opinion. I do find the fork and seat stay areas to look super clean. A few (very few) bikes even route the front brake hose cleanly enough to not completely ruin it!

I dont agree with u.. Actually There is a good looking disk bike, but for April Fools' Day... Perfect aesthetic for that occasion, especially if it's Aero in same time...

But for rest of the year i agree: good looking disc bike is Oxymoron definetely.... But at least u can put it on the wall, install clock arrows/mechanism on both discs, and on one disc u can show time for example Central Europian Time, on Second dont know.. Maybe time in New York.. So at least it can be used as living room clock if u use imagination enough (clock showing two different time zones, which also is enough reason to consider it as clock with some engineering involved in design)

I don’t hate it but...

Looks more like a giant tcr than a tarmac to me. Neither of which really inspire me. Personally I think disc looks better than rim brake on a frame with dropped seat stays. But I’m not a big fan of discs generally. Or dropped seat stays. But I’d take a venge over this. And if the top tube isn’t horizontal I prefer it to be more horizontal than this. I’d pass.

Yeah, those photos definitely don't look as good. The first pictures were a girl's selfie for a profile picture. These photos are the ones her friends tagged her in.

I've said it many times: IMHO only the made in Italy steel masters and carbon C series Colnagos are 'real' Colnagos. Their other models can be very good but nothing special.

I don’t care where it’s made so much from a quality perspective, quality can be achieved anywhere with the right oversight. But yeah, it’s maybe psychologically nice if it’s “Made in InsertPreferredCountryOfManufacture”. I’d have to see it for real versus those thumbnails, but it’s not doing a thing for me design wise. And since it’s got dropped stays, just don’t even bother with rim brakes... dropped stays are a horrible place for rim brakes.
