    I am not positive but I think its a comfort thing...looks like using them is mimicking having hoods on a road bike somewhat. correct me if I am wrong please

    You, sir, are correct.

    With 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.

    I actually want to give those bars a shot, but they're a niche product that if I don't like, I'm pretty much boned (can't reasonably resell them).

    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.

    Actually, they are sort of hard to find and sought after by endurance racers. A former teammate of mine just bought some in anticipation of using them at Elite Track Nationals.

    Beautiful new Tiemeyer build! I also ride a Timeyer with Scatto bars, found a few pages back.

    What is that fork you have on there however?! I find it looks better with the frame than the standard EDGE fork used on most Tiemeyers frames.

    Thanks, man. It's the Dolan Wing Pista as I'm sure you've seen on the Dolan DF3 and Dolan Forza. This is the first bike on which Mr. Tiemeyer has used this fork. I wanted something strong and light, with an emphasis on strong. I asked him if it would work and he investigated and it did. It has the same 30mm rake as the Alpina F04 that would have come with this frame. I'm a big guy and I think he chooses the F04 for his larger riders.

    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

    Strong work, David Tiemeyer. I give your bike the name, "cioccolata bianca".

    Maybe I will get to race against that bike in 2012.
