    Anti-Ugly Bike Thread (Bike Pron)

    While some of us will ride ugly bikes if they perform well, I'm wondering what everyone considers the best looking bike. This could just be frames or complete bikes. I'll start it off with one of the best looking bikes I've seen recently. I submit, the Unno Dash from Spain.

    This Blackbird HT of his is about as progressive as it gets.

    I know the whole "murdered out" trend has probably played out, but dang I'm a sucker for it. Santa Cruz gets pretty close. Someday I will have this bike.

    For some reason gumwalls have never grabbed me. I don't see the big deal with them.

    Totally agree, although the saddle is an odd angle.

    I'm a sucker for gum walls too. Not all the time, but in certain cases it's a cool old school look. Resto-mod if you will.

    I don't know if I'd call it the most beautiful bike I've ever seen (I go back and forth on the swoopy lines), but I think Pole's new Machine looks pretty badass, and they get extra radness points for CNC'ing the whole thing out of a single block of aluminum:
