We've always got time for a bit of bike porn here at Cycling Weekly, so here's our pick of the seven sexiest bikes we've spotted so far this year. And don't worry, it's all safe for work...

Enigma Exemplar

Enigma Exemplar

To celebrate its 10th birthday, West Sussex brand Enigma has produced a very limited run of the Enigma Exemplar which has been “made without regard to time or money”. Each of the 20 Exemplar’s that will be produced will be individually built for its owner and cost £10,995.

This bike is as much about looks as performance. You get a custom paintjob with the electric blue on the bike above extended to the Campagnolo Super Record groupset and Enve wheels, which have all been finished with a stunning blue lacquer.

Vincenzo Nibali’s bright pink Specialized S-Works Tarmac

If you thought Vincenzo Nibali’s win in the Giro d’Italia was spectacular, you should see his bike. To celebrate the Italian’s second Giro triumph, Specialized wheeled out a chrome pink Tarmac that looked amazing even under the grey skies of the final stage.

>>> Pro Bike: Vincenzo Nibali’s Specialized S-Works Tarmac

Complemented with pink Supacaz handlebar tape and Tacx bottle cages, this is a bike that puts the likes of Chris Froome’s yellow Pinarello Dogma F8 in the shade, although Nibali has stayed classy with his plain black wheels, seatpost, saddle and stem.

Fabian Cancellara’s Trek Madone

Although Fabian Cancellara will take on Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders on his new Trek Domane, its the Swiss rider’s aero Trek Madone that really got our mouths watering with its deep aero tubes and clean lines thanks to the fully integrated cabling.

>>> Review: Trek Madone 9.9

And what makes it even better is the almost completely black finshing kit, especially the seriously long slammed stem, which means that attention is drawn entirely to the beautiful frame.

Pinarello Dogma F8W

The standard Pinarello Dogma F8 is a good enough looking bike as it is, but its clean lines and sweeping curves are only enhanced by the lack of wires and cables on this F8W model with a SRAM Red eTap wireless groupset.

And how about that beautiful red and white paintjob? We’ve always been fans of the black and blue Pinarellos that Team Sky use, but this look takes things up a notch, especially when combined with the all black Zipp 303 wheels.

Edvald Boasson Hagen’s Cervelo S5

Not quite as shiny as Nibali’s Tarmac, but still pretty slick nonetheless, Edvald Boasson Hagen’s Cervelo S5 certainly stands out when racked up before races alongside the stealth black Cervelos of his Dimension Data teammates.

The reason for the custom paintjob is Boasson Hagen’s win in the 2015 Norwegian National Championships, with red and blue details adorning the top tube, fork, seatstays and chainstays.

Peter Sagan’s world champion’s Specialized S-Works Venge ViAS

One bike that you’re unfortunately not going to be able to get your hands on is the special world champion’s bike that Peter Sagan will be enjoying this season. He’s got similar custom paintjobs on his Tarmac and Roubaix, but we think that it’s the deep aero tubes of the Specialized S-Works Venge ViAS that best show off the flecks of rainbow paint that cover the black base.

And it’s the details that really make this bike, with the names of all the former world champions (yes, including Lance) written into the white of the S-Works logo while the double cross of the Slovakian coat of arms is also subtly incorporated into the paintjob.

Alejandro Valverde’s Canyon Ultimate CF SLX

The Canyon Ultimate CF SLX was released last June, and for 2016 Alejandro Valverde has managed to bag a custom painted version with a rather lovely white paintjob with a red top to the top tube that celebrates his national championship win.

Aside from the frame, the rest of the kit is in standard blue and green Movistar colours but still work rather well with the white frame. And somehow the green hoods don’t clash with the red top tube. Stunning.

  • J1

    Eww, what’s wrong with its seat tube?

  • Richard Jones

    I want to try crowd funding a new Idol.

  • John Senior

    So…if you were offered any of these bikes for free you’d refuse it? Generally these bikes are aesthetically and technically astonishing – also very expensive and unattainable for most of us.. exception is the Cervelo which is pretty ugly and if EBH knocked on my door and gave it to me I’d need to paint it matt black to diminish it,s less than lovely appearance.

  • Bodo Vosshenrich

    Nonthing there which is as pretty as my 2015 Felt AR frd with Lightweight Meilenstein and Dura Ace DI2. Wherever I take it, fellow cyclists begin to drool.

  • ummm…

    all i know is that the more money you put into a bike the nicer it looks and the faster you go……right?

  • ummm…

    hyperbole much?

  • ummm…

    what?! none of these bikes gave me a b0ner.

  • ron draycott

    Sorry, what was this feature? The seven nastiest bikes of all time?

  • Volata
  • Mark K

    Sorry but the Pinarello is making me gag.

  • Michael Hartley

    I Just love my Seven Axiom SLX
    Sooo comfortable. Looks brilliant and glides over the rough stuff

  • david watts

    Look frames are fantastic but too heavy given their high cost.

  • david watts

    You forgot the exceptional Scappa. Enough said

  • Tavis Hurn

    Most of these are very very ugly. There should be something in the rules.

  • Lenny

    The Ritchey was nice. All the others, meh.

  • zuhair

    That Ritchey’s got classic styling and heritage out the wazoo!

  • nortonpdj

    Whilst class is a hard thing to define (and of course it is purely subjective) I don’t think any of these bikes has it. The Enigma comes closest for me, but in general I think these bikes are too ugly or too loud.

  • Dan Dg Gottlieb

    how can you call that crossbike sexy or a beauty? It’s nothing special. the entire de rosa line of bikes this year is much better looking

  • Jason Rogerson

    Parlee ESX-R Custom or the Look Aerolight

  • Larry Page

    You damn British 🙂
    No style at all
    No specialissima out there

    Hahaha, canyon design

  • gh

    Indeed. My 200 quid Kinesis is much prettier than any of this lot.

  • NJAgent020

    FUGLY- each and every one.

  • winkybiker

    The Aerolight has been hit hard (very hard) with the ugly stick. The TT needs to be flatter and it clearly needs a shorter head-tube. The S5 should simply be killed with fire. The Parlee might grow on me (like that lump/growth has appeared on its TT) and the rest are fine. I actually quite like the Canyon (never thought I’d say that).

  • Mason Cycles should be on this list.
