We have always said that at Contender Bicycles, our best tools for selling TIME bikes are the people you ride them. Based on experiences of our staff and many satisfied customers, we know that each TIME will show the rider how well a bike can ride. This is definitely true when it comes to the TIME NXS. Last year, Alison was lucky enough to ride a prototype of the TIME NXS frameset for a few months and provide feedback to TIME regarding the ride. For her, this frameset provided features conducive to her riding style. With the rear triangle being similar to the rear triangle of the Fluidity, the NXS provided great dampening of the road through the rear triangle making it perfect for her lower back that has been through a few too many back surgeries. Still wanting a frame with a more race-oriented geometry and a snappy front end, she found the NXS to be an ideal frame. With a standard seatpost, her bike can be used for many a test ride for those interested in giving fully spec’d out TIME NXS a serious ride.
The TIME NXS is an excellent well-rounded bicycle that features many ideas and designs from its bigger brothers in the lineup. Very much known as an all-around comfortable bicycle, the NXS still features a racing geometry and offers plenty of get up and go when you push the pace. The Vectran utilization will keep you feeling fresh even on the longest days over the bumpiest terrain. The BB30 bottom bracket, asymmetrical chainstays and the carbon aero seatpost give this bike plenty of performance traits making this bike very versatile no matter when you find yourself riding.
The ability to buffer even the most torn up roads and deliver rider confidence and effectiveness cannot be duplicated. The TIME NXS is a great bike for gran fondos, centuries and long weekend rides being that the frame is engineered to be supple and comfortable in any environment. Unlike most bike manufactures these days, TIME is unique because every model is built 100% by hand and 100% in France. Instead of buying flat sheets of pre-made carbon fabric, TIME weaves their own tubes according to their own specifications. While weaving their own carbon, TIME blends Vectran fibers into the NXS frame that provides a smooth ride quality without giving up any efficiency.
Please note that the frameset is available in mechanical or electronic frameset which includes the frame, fork, headset, seatpost and bottle cage. With the purchase of a frameset, a TIME Monolink Ulteam stem is available for an additional $250 as well as a TIME ErgoForce or TIME ErgoDrive handlebar for another $250. Please contact us to add your size and color of stem and/or handlebar to your order.
