    Nice bike, but I do not like that stem

    Yes, it is an acquired taste and I am getting there. It matches the bars well, but it's not what I am used to looking at.

    Having now ridden it I can say I have really forgotten all about it.

    Nice looker. Feels good to build up doesn't it?

    but as above the Stem on-top of the spacers looks like E.T.

    Leavers look a bit skywards too :lol:
  • I like this, always quite liked the unusual aesthetics of Time bikes. Although getting rid of the spacers will make it look a lot better.

    How are the Metron Vision 40 wheels? I'm interested in a pair myself.

    Nice bike ! Looks ace.

    Were you fitted for it ? as there is some serious spacing going on under that stem,I'm not suggesting for a minute that you "slam" it by any means,it just looks it bit odd at the front end.

    Just as well you have an out front mount for the GPS - but it looks dwarfed by the front of the stem!

    Hoods seem oddly positioned on the bars though - I'd have thought that the bars wanted to be tilted up a little and the hoods moved forward and down a little. It just looks like it would be awkward in the drops.
    Faster than a tent.......

    Nice.

    Needs white stem spacers (or a different stem).
    Condor Super Acciaio, Record, Deda, Pacentis.
    Curtis 853 Handbuilt MTB, XTR, DT Swiss and lots of Hope.
    Genesis Datum Gravel Bike, Pacentis (again).
    Genesis Equilibrium Disc, 105 & H-Plus-Son.

    Mostly Steel.

    Could be good - but that bar/stem/lever setup ruins what should be a great looking bike, sorry. What are the hoods doing pointing skywards..?

    Nice bike, don't see many around (which I like), shifter position not too my taste, but hey if you like it.

    Shifters are pointing up, lower them!

    I agree with the above. The stem spoils it.

    Why 25mm tyres? (serious question)
