Time NXR Instinct for CC.

Taking a cue from my own NXR Instinct, CC was looking for a performance road machine that would serve him just as well on 6 hour training rides as it would during 60 minute criteriums.

HED impresses me with their alloy clincher wheelsets. Look for more of these on Svelte Issue machines in the future.

The shaped tubes from Time are not just for looks, they noticeably improve stiffness along the top tube over their previous generation modules.

The rear end of the NXR is fitted with lugs making frame repairs relatively easy as need be. Time USA has their own certified shop for said needs.

"Asymetrical Chainstays" means the drive side chain stay is designed to better withstand the strains of the drive train under load.

I love how Times Translink System makes for super clean lines. Very friendly to the eye.

These are the HED "Flame Rouge" series hubs... Slightly lighter and than their standard version.

You just can't go wrong with Shimano Dura Ace. Even their new Ultegra 6700 is worthy and you will see that on my Gaulzetti Corsa Titanio with pics to come very soon.


Time uses an 1 1/8 - 1 1/2 steerer fork. Said fork also passes the new, stringent CEN (Comité Européen de Normalisation) standards.

The Time NXR Instinct... I love mine!

Time World Star Ulteam For SM.

Yes ladies and gentlemen SM really is that tall.

I set the saddle to the right height "custom" just for him. Amazing how this stock machine from Time fits him perfectly! How do they do that?!

The pretty PMP post is just for the pix... Time requires using their proprietary fixture or else the warranty is null and void. Take note!

Hand made lugs with a classic look and proven design.

Those stays were tried and tested in countless European Classics, Grand Tours and World Championship. Only the out of this planet powerful Tom Boonen could get them to budge an ounce (gram?).

Time addressed that issue for Tom and he went on to win the World Championships.

The Time Ulteam World Star is one of the few remaining non-BB30 framesets from Time. Once these are gone, they are gone.

Times patented RTM process allows them to fabricate each individual tube to their own specifications.

Svelte Signature Dura Ace Finish Kit with a Power Tap Pro+ for good measure.

Yell down that seat tube and you get an echo.

Times own Ulteam Safe+ Fork is also made by hand in France and is known to be of the nicest riding carbon units produced to date.

Quality, Pedigree, Class, Precision. Time stands alone as the finest major production company of carbon fiber performance machines.

Spy Shots and Those Damn Italians!

This just in from Austin, TX... Corsa Carbonio fresh from the oven!

Over on the East Coast... Ti is so pretty painted no?

Steel in the nude and in its infancy but just use your imagination. The "Issimo" is coming.....

I had written off ever seeing the 20 Nemesis Rims I ordered last NOVEMBER. Pretty sure these will go well with Dura Ace or Record hubs and some Challenge Paris-Roubaix tires no? You know who to call if you want a pair! Muahahahaha!!!!!!
