But with all the focus on speed and integration, what does this cost in the long term when it comes to time, usability and (most importantly) practicality?
Senior videographer and Bikeradar Diaries superstar Joe Norledge is on the case. In this video he examines everything that’s being claimed about this bike, and asks what the integrated aero features on the new Timemachine could cost the average user.
Mildred’s a utilitarian cyclist at heart, determined to do everything on two wheels, whether it’s shopping, commuting or moving house. She’s spent the past three years volunteering as a mechanic and workshop coordinator at the Bristol Bike Project, and now sits on its board of directors. Her expertise in bikes — and what people want out of them — comes from working in real-world bike shops and learning the ins and outs of the industry. At home on slicks and knobblies alike, Mildred’s ideal ride covers long distances through remote countryside, on mixed terrain that offers a bit of crunch. She’s easily won over by steel frames coupled with a 650B/plus-tyre combo, and is currently riding a Surly Bridge Club.
