Tony’s TT bike

Tony’s TT bike

Tony asked me to build him a TT bike, and was able to come to visit for a fitting. He has a similar physiology to me – long limbs – which has made getting a good position on stock bikes difficult in the past. We spent some time with the fit jig – “can you go lower? It looks like you could….” and ended up with a nice, flat back position, which should be great for the short distance events Tony races.

The bike has SRAM eTap shifting, with a single chainring in front, which keeps the cable routing nice and clean. We selected a Vision TFA aerobar, which matches up to a short, dropped headtube to allow for a clean integration of the stem into the toptube. A custom steel aero fork nicely matches the frame, with TriRig Omega brakes front and rear. There is an aero downtube and a custom ovalised seattube, which features an adjustable cap for the saddle and a cutout for the rear wheel. To allow for tucking different size tires up to the cutout, modified Bentley track dropouts are used, which feature neat adjusters to keep the wheel where it should be.

Satin black and gold chrome paint was applied by Colorworks, and the final weight comes in at 17.7lbs as shown.
