Decades ago, all of the best road bikes were custom builds. The bikes would come in as a frame and fork, and the cyclist would work to build the bike according to their needs, wants, and budget. More recently, bikes have come more and more as a complete idea, leaving little room for the rider to interpret a bike as they’d want it. Like our BMC Roadmachine frame sale that gave the chance for riders to build something uniquely theirs, we now offer the same thing with the TIME Alpe d’Huez, TIME Scylon, and TIME Fluidity.
There is a certain allure to building up a frame from scratch. Part of it has to be the idea of having a bike unlike any other on the road, one-of-a-kind and built exactly for how the bike will be used. Part of it also has to be the ability to make something truly reflect your individual tastes, instead of merely choosing a bike off the rack. Both require a caring eye to build something truly special.
The TIME Sport line of road bikes offers a road bike for nearly any kind of rider, and now at an unbeatable price. And to get ideas flowing as to how you can build up your TIME, check out a few of our suggested builds.
TIME Alpe d’Huez 01
TIME’s latest and greatest bike is geared for climbing. It’s the Goldilocks; if the Scylon is the racer, and the Fluidity is the all-day bike, the TIME Alpe d’Huez 01 is the bike that does both with aplomb. At just 840 grams for a frame, the Alpe d’Huez manages to be nearly as stiff as the Scylon with the same geometry, but it’s skinnier tubes make it a worthwhile companion on all-day events. Add in the choice of disc brakes and an option for the vibration-canceling Aktiv fork, and the Alpe d’Huez 01 is the all-arounder with a ride quality unmatched by few bikes.
TIME is known for their RTM carbon layup process that allows the small French brand to tune their bikes to have their ideal characteristics. It’s what allows the TIME Scylon, with its aerodynamic tubing and massive solidness out of the saddle, to ride firm without being unyieldingly stiff. This also is what allows the Scylon to maintain calm handling at high speeds where other bikes might feel jittery and unsettled. We have deals on Scylon Aktiv and Scylon Aktiv Disk in myriad builds for those looking TIME’s final answer in speed.
The TIME Fluidity builds off of the brand’s proven race geometry by adding a 10-15 mm taller headtube depending on size, and a custom carbon layup. Using their RTM carbon layup process, TIME tunes the Fluidity to have the most vibration damping and easiest handling out of their lineup. The Fluidity soaks up chip seal and rough roads with ease, perfect for your next all-day ride, century, or gran fondo.
These deals won’t last long. Give us a call during business hours with any questions, or send us an email any time to firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
