Time RXR Ulteam

Postby ollie cb » Tue Sep 17, 2013 18:21 pm

So, I sold the De Rosa about 4 months ago and it took a long time to find a suitable replacement. I considered other options such as a Look 695, Cervelo R5 etc but when I saw time time and effort that goes into a Time frame and the carbon that is used, I decided on this.

And what about the ride? It's great. Really stable on descents, light (enough) to get up the hills and speedy on the flat.. Oh and it really is a nice thing to look at.

It's my only bike and the gloss finish will fortunately be a lot easier to clean in the winter than the matte black De Rosa. Only problem now is that I'm eyeing up EPS. Oh well, this should do until I leave uni :)

Anyway, enjoy. I DEFINITELY need to take some better photos! So i'll update later with them and the build list.

This is only a joke by the way, I am in no way implying directly or otherwise that there is any kind of link or similarity between BR and North Korea :)

Thanks for the kind words :)

Easy tiger!

FYI, at one point in my time at Uni I had 4 term time jobs (it was never less than 2) and worked every Summer.

Enjoy the bike, it's very nice!

That’s a beast! Are those the wheels you’re selling in the classifieds ollie? I think you should keep ‘em – they look good on her!

That is one sexy bike. The seat tube/seat post area looks nice.

Very nice - although don't read the thread on here about Time not honouring their warranty...

Is that the one linking to the infamous youtube video?

Thanks for letting me know though. I have already made provisions for if such a problem was to occur (it involves a nice aluminium replacement!)

How aggressive is that geometry? You are almost sitting over the rear hub. Still a beautiful bike. Got a lot of time for erm Time.

I've got one and would describe the handling as 'lively' :lol:

Lovely bike, don't see too many Time bikes so it's good to see something different. Kind of kicks the $h!t out of most students bikes you see locked up outside campuses, old univegas or battered Raleighs with the drop handlebars on upside down! (Not that I suppose you would ever leave it locked up anywhere!)
