This summer I was finally able to buy the frame I absolutely adore: the Time VXR. Finding one wasn't easy, especially since I wanted a size L non-ISP.

I found this bike in Belgium, and it wasn't easy getting the frame to The Netherlands (where I live). Since I live in the north, It would have taken a full day to pick it up by car. Having two small kids, I simply don't have the time. The owner couldn't (or wouldn't) ship the bike, so I through the Dutch bike forum I found some one who lived close by. He picked up the bike, another guy from the forum moved it to Haarlem (NL), where I picked it up.

The frame was originally ridden by Frederik Nolf, a former pro rider who tragically died at very young age... :cry:

This is how the bike looked when I picked it up

Jobs done

- changed the crank to a Chorus carbon CT
- serviced the headset (luckily the bearings were still ok)
- removed decals from F5 wheels and fitted new bearings
- swapped the hideous stem for an FSA
- new cables
- overhauled the right shifter
- fitted new 25 mm tires
- swapped the handlebars for a Pro Vibe S round which I had in stock
- swapped the saddle for a Speh Phenom
- installed Powertap pedals

Currently it looks like this

The frame will be resprayed at the end of the winter, which is really necessary since the white in in the paint scheme has gone yellow. I will stick to the original paint scheme but will make it a bit more subtle by reducing the amount of Time logo's. Not sure if I'll keep the carbon weave, I might just go for shiny black.

As you know this frame is not very stiff but I'm pleasantly surprised by the ride quality. Very, very smooth. I took it to France on holiday and had no problem descending the Ventoux with 90 kph.
