Didn't everyone get there Time Stimulous Package- some sort of bail out :lol: from the government?
No really it took alot of saving for this and last year started buying pieces.

SR rear der
Record 11 front der (may swap for a record 10 though)
Zipp SLC2 bars
Zoncolan fx team saddle
Centaur 10 shifters
ZG brakes

I have 2 bikes that are campagnolo 10 already and do not want to worry about switching wheelsets/cassettes that is why I am keeping 10 speed atleast for now. I know that might not be a popular decision but it seems to make sense to me. I did want the 11 speed der's - eventually will switch over.

Edit:
Easton Cranks, and although they are a very good match with the white and red; I have an a;most overwhelming urge to remove the paint from the crank arms. There is just something about bare carbon cranks. Also I dont think it would be long before they get knicks and scuffs.

That is one fly looking frame. That and the fact you are going with Campagnolo 10v means you get the Italo-Macktastic Seal of Approval. :thumbup:

PM me if you what the quickset pdf.

The bars are for he headset adjustment. The little o rings are for the cables and the rubber squishy things are for the cables where they cross the frame.

I used Fulcrum Racing Cranks and they look HOT!

Can't wait until this one gets built up! It stinks that the plastic cutting guide that Time includes with the frameset can only be used once... What happens if you swap saddles and need to take off another mm or two? DOH! I'm going to try to email time to see if they can mail me some more..

Very nice indeed. However, I am a bit biased :thumbup:

Built it up yesterday morning and then immediately logged 108 miles on it. The Record 11 front der. works with 10 sp but it is not ideal.
Raised up a little higher than normal works better. I may try it just a little bit higher. It was a poor decision on my part to get that in lieu of a 10 speed unit and that is something I will probably switch.

The Zipp SLC2 handlebars may be swapped out for a compact bar. I am going to give it a few rides and see if I adjust to it. The drops seem too deep.

The graphics on the cranks might stay, I dont know yet.

incroible

interested to know how that rides over 100miles, and what sort of terrain/roads you're riding?

I will wait until I have significant time on the bike to post a report.
To be more accurate, it was 35 miles, came home (ate lunch) and made some adjustments. Then another 15 miles to shake it down again. Then 58 miles with a group ride in the evening.

The ride is very smooth, and steering seems a little quicker than I am use to. I think the drop of the Zipp handlebars are too deep for me.
Yokozuna Reaction cables shift amazingly well, but the brake housing is too wide so I could not use it.

Edit:
The terrain that day was mostly flat to rolling. I have done a few short, but steep climbs since and I do not think the bike will hurt my climbing at all. And I do love to climb. BTW it weighs 15.1 lbs as seen in the pic, but with my Bontrager aero xlite tubulars (which are not all that light anyway) weighs 14.4.
I hope to get a nice set of tubular wheels later this year maybe......

Have you had enough TIME on the bike to give your ride comments?
What do you think?
