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.
