Holy crap that's nice. I don't know what it is, but a classy bike just jumps off the page in a way a Boardman or Comtat or Trek doesn't. That's the emotional response and it's never failed me. The Time just looks hot.

The choice of the mute wheels is smart, if they had the usual white decals the whole thing would be too much. The frame is actually quite busy isn't it? The white hoods and tape are excellent with the rest. The bar-levers set up is perfect, who set it up for you?

What's a "good deal" for such a bike? 4-5k?

Thanks!

Yeah, frame is quite busy. I like the gloss carbon look though and all Time frames have quite a bit going on. The matt versions are a bit more subtle but dont quite do it for me.

I built and set the bike up myself. Setup is important - its got to look right, but also needs to suit your position on the bike. In my opinion, as long as you have the right size frame, you really should be able to get things like shifter positioning, bar angle and seat angle right. Even little things like gear cables being too long annoy me so I make sure that all of these things are right on my bike. Thanks for noticing! :)

Price, not sure. I didn't build it in one go and haven't added it all up (probably best that I dont, as I think £5k would probably be a bit shy).
