You, sir, are correct.
http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/...-worlds_109041With the raised bends, a rider can somewhat mimic a road position where the wrists are on the tops and the hands are on the lever hoods.
And that hand position mimics the time trial position.
Training fixed gear through wind and rain because the track season starts a few weeks from now...
I bet in a few months after race season there will be quite a few on the used market. They came stock on the Felt tk2 which is a very popular entry level bike. So a lot of newer races would have just races them for a season, then I would guess many want to swap out for a more traditional bar.
Just picked this one up today. My old track bike was unsuitable for my track (low BB + 47 degree banking)
Aesthetically, I think that the rectangular lines of the fork work well with the similar lines in the frame.
I got the fork and Thomson X4 painted to match when the frame went to Spectrum. All of this changed the standard price, of course.
I'm familiar with your Tiemeyer. I've seen the many permutations. They were all very nice
