Finally got around in posting some pictures of my new ride.

Here are the specs:
Frame - Size small (54cm)
Wheelset - Lightweight Clinchers
Tires - Michelin Pro 3 Race
Stem - 110mm
Handlebar - 3T Ergosum Team (42cm)
Bartape - 3T
Saddle - Fizik Antares Carbon
Pedals - Look Keo Blade CrMo (12nm)
Groupset - Campagnolo Super Record 11
Saddlebag - Rapha

Weighed in under 15lbs. Can't remember the exact number but I'll weigh it again when I get back to the US from my Asia trip.

imo I would get a plain back saddle and remove the spare tire fitted below it (for photography)

A saddlebag on a bike like that? :noidea:

You've got way way too many nice bikes already ;) Nice bike though - I love those time frames... How's the top tube - any flex ?

ajmit3 - thanks for the kind words. I don't really feel any flex on the bike since I'm not a strong rider. On a good day I would average 21mph after a 40 mile ride. :mrgreen:

I guess you answered my question about how would it look, especially if I imagine the new Campagnolo EPS on it. Oh, get a second bottle cage and just get rid of the saddle pack..

Stellar build. The curve of the DT makes the cables look like the sit quite far away from the frame. Not a criticism, just observation.

Am I right in remembering that the non-electronic version of these frames has BB86?

Can you comment on the ride of the bike compared to other bikes you own or have ridden? I am planning a new bike around the next Dura-Ace Di2 and am considering this frame against, perhaps, a Dogma 2, Look 695, or an Impec (if they ever materialize).

Wow, gorgeous bike! Thanks for the pictures... I just got a black label RXRS too, though not as classic a build as yours!

dgasmd - second bottle cage is on it's way. it's actually hard to find the matching cage (matte carbon) and was able to snag one up on eBay.

mgordon - yes, you are correct on the BB. The Di2 specific frame has a different BB. The past bikes I've ridden were Cervelo R3SL, Cervelo RS, Specialized Tarmac SL3, Seven Axiom, and BMC Pro Machine. So far this is my favorite bike after my Tarmac. The Tarmac is an all around rig I think - but then again, I am biased with Specialized. Overall, this Time RXRS is top notch! I've thought of the Dogma 2 and Look 695 but I felt it wasn't as exclusive as the Time. There are a bunch of Dogma's running around town in Houston and that turned me off a bit. The 695 looks pretty good but never had the chance to ride a Look that's why I had to pass. I got a good deal on this frame from PBK that's why I ended up building this instead. If you're in the market for a Dogma 2, I could hook you up with my LBS. PM me for more info.

milkbaby - what group are you gonna be putting on it?

THANKS FOR ALL THE KIND WORDS GUYS! LOVING THE NEW RIDE! :thumbup:
