Any one has any trick to close the hole? It is very annoying for an expensive bike like time not to have the cup for di2 !

@miltmaster3: You should have received the grommets with your “electric kit” from Time. They have a couple plugs for the downtube mechanical cable ports and grommets for the driveside chainstay exit port for the Di2/EPS wires. The diameters of the wires are different so there are two plugs... one for Di2 and one for EPS. Good luck getting it fitted properly.

You are right but the di2 kit is sold after market ! The thing is that it is very hard to find it ( the local dealer live in his planet ) so I am trying through e mail to time ( no luck ) to find a e shop to buy !

Yes, I appreciate that it is sold after market and doesn’t come with the frame. I also know full well how difficult getting something from TIME can be. Took a few weeks for me to get the electric kit. And literally months to get a “new” saddle clamp, which was nothing more than the old one with some grit glued to its surfaces. Where are you located?

Sugru would probably work quite well if you wanted to try it. I came very close to going that route myself.
You may try asking kgt to help facilitate your communication with TIME to get the electric kit.

Just got my ADH 2019 disc frameset today(custom order with classic Time logo in black & white color). No bloody aktiv boat anchor! Took about 2 months for delivery.

The weight is 1460 for XS(forgot to take off stem cap) Seatpost is 155g.

Have mixed feelings about it. The fit and finish is very good. Not happy that it is no longer made in France! Hopefully it still rides likely the previous Time bikes I own.

Will post in few weeks time when built and tested well.

Time lost more than half of its work force in Vorepe when Rossignol moved production to Slovakia. Financial necessity, but Time will lose part of its appeal in the near future.

Slovakia is not China but is not France either. I guess the manufacturing technology (RTM etc.) and quality will be the same but...
Made in France was important to the fans of TIME (like me). For 2020 only Alpe d'Huez 01 and 21 frames. I hope more new models are on the way otherwise TIME's end is near, I am afraid.

So AdH was last model which was "real" Time frame. Sad.

Maybe they are starting Slovenian production just with one model and later on get more different frames like new Scylon.
