Awesome! I just got in touch with them and it looks like the frame is still in production. Should be shipped out in 7-10 days, I can't wait! I'll share pics here once I've built it up.

Are you running the Dead Superbox stem?

Yes, I have the Deda [autocorrect stinks ] Superbox stem... It's pretty nifty and keeps the cables concealed. Looks really nice too since it's, well, boxy... Regarding the frame, when I ordered mine, they already had one ready to go so it shipped immediately. 7-10 days isn't bad for yours though....

OK, well, since timcruz is getting the amber one and I have the carbon gloss one, you should just get the green or blue one to complete the trifecta...

Nice! Congrats... What I've discovered is that this is one my best descending bikes. It's very stable. You can literally ride downhill, going 35 mph, and just take your hands off the handlebars... Post pics when you get it.

I have it all built up and made a stupid YouTube video about it! I can't post a link but if you're interested I'll DM you the link and you can check it out!

Photos here!

Very nice bike!

I have a Time VX Special Pro that I bought new in 2003. It is still the best handling bike I've ever ridden - quick, but stable, and utterly confidence-inspiring.

Thanks! Those VX Special Pro's look pretty sweet as well... I'm just annoyed that it took me all of these years to realize that these Time bikes are so well made... The tolerances, the finishing, etc, are amazing... Honestly, it puts all the other big name carbon frames to shame.

I think there are a lot of really great bikes out there, but I have consistently found that people who have ridden Times almost invariably consider them among the best bikes they have ridden. I really like my current Storck road bike. It's light, fast, and in every way a high-performance road machine. However, compared to my Time, the handling is nervous, and lacks the same sure-footed predictability.

Enjoy your ride!

Beautiful bike and looks like a great choice! For a gravel bike, a good purpose-built carbon frame beats the hell out of a dinosaur titanium frame in every way except maybe will it last 30 years. But who wants to ride the same bike for 30 years anyway?

Thanks! Yeah, I thought about it the same way... Too many stories of people buying a Moots or some other fancy titanium frame, intending for it to be a "forever bike," and then realizing that their frame is now outdated when it comes to standards. Plus, I get bored easily and like to switch up bikes every few years (although this one will probably be in the stable for a long time)...

Did you Time-owning lucky-ducks notice that “YouTube sensation” Hambini put Time at the top of his Table of Build Quality list recently, saying further that Time was in a “league of one”?

Could anyone tell me if the ADHX also uses the patented Time Quickset headset or not? I'm having a hard time visualizing how that system could work together with the Deda Superbox stem's spacers and the Deda DCR internal cable routing (as far as I know, that requires its own special headset)

I'm not home to check, but this is what I had found online: "The ADHX uses a more compatible DEDA S DCR headset to tuck away cables" via https://contenderbicycles.com/blogs/...-bike-thoughts

Thanks, I have found a youtube video that clearly shows a traditional steerer without a threaded sleeve (sorry, I cannot link it, as I have less than 10 posts)

I'm actually wondering if it was worth giving up the benefits of the Quickset system for the sake of integration, which I'm not really a fan of (though the DCR system is one of the best of this kind)

Not sure, but the system seems to work well and sure looks the part...

Where exactly are the cables routed within the headtube, in front of the steerer or behind it? And do they rub against the steerer at all?

The front... don't think so...

Time bikes in vivo look awesome, and when I crash my road bike hard enough, it's probably going to get replaced with a Time Skylon.

The RTM production technology is superior. 3T is also doing the same (and is producing in Italy) for their newest gravel bike (Racemax or something).

Hi riders! I'm deciding on this particular bike too. Could you tell me what size frame you ordered, and what exactly is the standover height from the ground to the top of the centre of the top tube? I know I've already asked TimCruz through your YouTube comments. Just trying to decide whether to get XS or S. Thanks in advance!
