Currently remounting mine

My max with this bike is 200km with 25mm tires, feel fine, well just like 200km feels :)
I think that with the 3T Aerotundo it will be pretty fast.
Switched back to 23mm GP4000SII as it's what recommended by Reynolds.

Still waiting for a new one but as we saw it's tied with the ViAs so ... no need to change

Did anyone else notice that of the fastest 7 bikes in this test the TMR01 was the only one tested with non aero bars?

How much do aero bars save? I've heard up to 7w before. So aero bars could possibly make the TMR01 as fast as the trek and felt...or at least thats what I tell myself lol!

The highest number I've seen is on the zipp website IIRC saving 6.4w from 7.5 to 1.1 @ 30mph. I think most other companies claim ~3w

my zipp bars save around 4 watts looking at like for like numbers. Trouble is my position is slightly changed because of that, so its not just the bars....

Well, I better throw mine up there before I tear it down and sell it. Not enough miles on it to bother with unfortunately, lots of fun to build and stare at. Unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes. Blinged it out with the Star Spangled banner theme...not permanent and easily switch to original red striped carbon. Weight just 7kg, 15lbs +...Overall, it was actually comfortable, stiff, and quick. The quality of their frames is unmatched in my opinion inside and out. I've seen wavy carbon, voids, etc. on a lot of expensive brand name frames but this one lives up to the Swiss standards even if it was made in Taiwan. Good moulds.

Is there a new tmr01 in the making this year? they already released a new time trial bike,maybe the next step is a new aero bike, since nobody in the pro peloton seems to be using this iteration (except for some extreme pan flat races)....

Bump for some advice required. I have managed to lose the bolts holding the front brake cover on. Could anybody tell me the size (other than tiny) so I can get replacements?
Many thanks

I measure 2.9x8.0 so m3x8.0mm bolt.
The dome head is 5.46mm diameter and they take a 2mm Alen key.
Hope that helps. Good luck!!

Roadmachine that just came out was pretty good too.

New TMR and SLR would be really interesting at this point.
