Envy... i´m still waiting for mine
mine took about 2wks to get to California
My problem is, its custom order for me. I'm trying to convince them to send me the tfa cockpit together wit special adapters to make them directly compatable with the proprietary frame basebar.

3 weeks now without any info about this project. It's hard to stay focused and wait patiently. But i hope the wait is soon over,
hope you get yours soon. i'm still trying to find a fitter around my area to get my fit dialed in before i start to route and cut cables. :(

what saddles are you guys using on your TT? im currently using the PRO Stealth.. feels nice but would like to have better support.

thanks - after a month i got informed today that all stuff is in stock - payment is made - now the postal-wait period.

I run a Prologo T-gale CPC. fit between the nose and my pelvis is super, and the CPC material keeps me planted. (i run a Spec power arc 143mm on the road bike - so very different saddles). I sit on the nose of the saddle with the sit-bone, so the soft tissue is mostly not even in contact with the saddle but in front of it :-D

No, the one with our PAS (cut out). As it is flat, it works fine for me. But as i said, the soft bits are free-airing just in front of the saddles anyway :-D that's just uci setup when you have long legs but short arms/torso.

you mean speedplay? i would say the aero version is in the marginal gain department.

i´m a bit sceptical about the pedal aero benefit thing. they are not "static" but rotate all the time up and down.

Took awhile and got sidetracked by injuries and work. Finally conversion is done.

2018 BMC TMR02 + Vision Metron TFA + Metron Hydration System

Now waiting to get a physical therapy bike fitting in June.

For now I did my first 12 miles ride yesterday and felt pretty good. Had a lot of headwind so the front was wiggling. Need to learn how to balance better.

How is the Hydration system working for you?

I´m tired of destroying rear bottle cage holders (destroyed Specialized swat holder by damaging the swat bushings in the saddle, destroyed Prologo U-cage, snapped 4 bottle cages... enough is enough)

I really like the design and it holds up well on bumpy rides. Just don't like it when there's a lot of side winds haha. Other than that this bottle makes my front more aero, so mentally feels faster.

I do need to get a brush for cleaning the inside, but other than that I really like it and it integrates perfectly to my TFA.

I was looking at the profile design one but heard snapping and also it would work for bar that are tilted and angled.

Are there any sub 6.7kg TT bikes out there? That would be the love child of weight weenies and slow twitch.
