New Time frame looks like a huge shift from the Time tradition. I guess we are getting another step closer to the end of the lugged carbon frame era... I like it though.

Looks like a Venge and Propel's love child.

I think it's a great looking bike, other than the stem. Nice to see they have toned down the logo branding.

Seriously hoping they have an all white, or all black, or all red version. Color is half ass retarded!!

that is probably one of the least offensive colour schemes I've seen on an aero road bike.

agreed on the subdued branding as well. it was out of control for a while there

I like the colour scheme. The bike looks ok too, but a looks bit like every other bike that's just come out. I hope it's still their own carbon and process.

I think the paint scheme looks a little dated. I am also not a big fan of the seatpost of stem.

Was also hoping they had an ISP, but it seems they did away with it. The smaller head tube is a welcomed change compared to the RXR. Overall I like the frame, but the color scheme sucks despite how much more toned down on the logo department they are now.

Yeah the paint is odd, especially on the white BG, but the frame shape is pretty nice. I'd like to see it in solid color frame with matched size wheels.

I'll bet it looks a lot better live than in the photo. I like it but it looks heavy.

Slightly divergent from the topic, but I'll ask here because it's a bit relevant:

Aero frames are a thing, given. Are there any 'aero' frames out there that use standard sized seatposts? 27.2/31.6 and not some model-or-brand-specific aero shape on the seatpost itself?

Canyon AeroRoad is standard, I think.
