Finally I sold my RXRS frame, bought the new zxrs and passed on to it all off its components.

Result? 6,15kg of beauty:

- Sram Red 2012
- Lightweight Standard tubular (I also have Mavic RSYS clincher wheels for winter. With these on the weight is 6,3 kgs)
- Speedplay Ti Pedals
- Specialized swords toupe 143mm seat
- TRP 970 brakes
- Time handlebar
- Zipp stem (waiting for my time stem which is included with the frame)

Please re-size the first couple of pics mate, the Mars Lander doesn't need to be able to see them :thumbup:


Otherwise, like it! Great weight too!

Great bike! Not a fan of the size difference between the stem and spacers :)

Very nice bike.

But is the frame size big enough? The position suggests that you have long legs and a short spine, but the saddle - bar drop is quite large, so have you tried trading a few cm of bar drop for a few cm in length? Obviously this is internet armchair analysis, so feel free to ignore as what works best for you is key.

I agree with mrfish. I am slightly taller than you and i also ride a small Time.
Have you been properly fitted?
Looks like a great bike.

VERY nice bicycle! :thumbup: Is that the black label colorway? Seems like the decals are toned down from the RXRS in comparison...

Any words on ride difference between ZXRS and RXRS? I love my RXRS and not looking to change any time soon, but I am curious... Some people said the front end was stiffer, but I'm a smaller rider on an XS size so don't notice that myself.

The Mavics really enhance the frames aesthetics. Much better than the Lightweights. Lovely machine in a price-range I'm never getting when bike-shopping.
