What are you guys talking about? It's going to be the AX wheels, 24 and 42 SRT with Tune hubs! Heck, I'm going to be ordering both of those as well pretty soon!

LW Gen3s will stiffen up the ride and be light and aero.

Got rid of those wide THMs and really like the first ride with Zipp Vumas.

Added ~34 grams but the right fit is priceless.

I tried to use an AX6000 fork but Time uses proprietary bearings and headset so it cant be modified easily to work. Not-easy modification never stopped me before but this may require a special crown race. If anyone has any ideas or has used a non-Time fork on a Time before- let me know.

sorry to hijack, but can anyone tell me where I can find that blue prologo scratch online? And is it a scratch TR?
I've been keen to try the scratch TR and that blue strip would match so well with my bike, but my LBS doesn't have them and I can't seem to find the blue one anywhere online...

Thanks very much!

farbound- I cant recall where I picked that saddle up. Its a winner though. That color is not made anymore.
GuNKiLLaH- the buttons are life changing. I use them all the time- rolling in group rides, when climbing. I have them on both time bikes now. I decided where to mount them, shaved down the plastic mount and used double sided tape. No more zip ties. I'll get some updated pics but here is a temp solution.

Simply bravo Colo :beerchug:

And will be interested to see how the RXR stacks up to this one.

I've been on this bike once since getting the RXR. :cry: That was because it was raining and I didnt want to get the RXR dirty...
I'm going to get back on it this weekend with the LW Gen IIIs and give it a go again.

I have come to the conclusion that this frameset and build configuration doesnt make the best climbing/gran fondo type bike for me. I put a lot of effort into making it super light but its time to face the music and change directions.

I have a feeling it will excel as a smooth and nimble pave bike and see a lot of abuse along the dirt roads in Boulder County. This bike will retain the internal routing and thumb shofter but quite a few other component changes are in the works.

That sucks! I must say, you inspired me. I would have never even thought of doing internal routing on my Ridley Noah. Thanks to you I have a one of a kind Noah that doesnt have a $3K dollar Dura Ace group with wires taped to the frame!
So, thanks coloclimber for your help and installation pointers.

BP should hire us to clean up the oil spill and maybe something would get done!

Don't the THMs and AX have the same q-factor of 152mm?

Still liking the zipp cranks?
