Is it me or does that seat post clamp look like a slipping waiting to happen? I'm sure I'm wrong as we are talking about Time. Just looks a little concerning to me.

Don't worry. Time is maybe more conservative than others but they know exactly what they are doing. They make everything in house by hand so such "surprises" are rare.

What a change a fork can do to a bike...with the activ fork it looked really ugly...with the classic fork it looks like something I would actually buy!!! especially the full red one...it looks gorgeous!!!! :shock:

I also prefer the looks with the classic fork (it's 400€ cheaper as well) although it is certain that aktiv technology actually works. It's maybe the most sophisticated 'suspension' technology in the road cycling market.

For me also the best look is with the regular fork!
And I wish Time would create some better design for their paint (I actually miss the tine you could see the name time on the down tube). The plain red looks good however.

classic fork is way better... the busy downtube graphics suck too..(solid red bike is nice)

they should have chosen another seatclamp. it´s visually not pleasing and has very little room to move the saddle back or forth

I agree; don’t like that clamp design at all.
