Beautiful bike. Would love to hear more experiences and comparisons of these, ADH21, and ADHX.

Would love to hear an update as well.

Spoke to the Time sales rep on the phone a month or so ago as I was interested in the 2022 ADH. He said that compared to the 2023 ADH, the 2022 version, and I quote, "rides like a brick". I was surprised as I always assumed that the 2022 version has this "nice" and comfortable ride quality that is unlike the"dead" feeling mostly ascribed to carbon bikes made by your Trek-Spesh-Cann-Giant etc.

Would love to gets a review from someone who owns 2023 or 2022 ADH.

Thank you!

The 2023 ADH is a nice riding bike. Like all things in life, it depends on what is important to you. For me, weight matters and over 1kg for a frame in size small is heavy. My gravel frame is lighter and more aero.

I'm 100% not a fan of PF BB's. I had to loctite in a one-piece BBRIGHT to make it quiet.

I am a very picky mechanical engineer. Details matter. Is the ADH better than a SL8? For me the answer is no. Do I like the pink paint? I do. Do I like the way it rides? I do. Did I ride it in the Hincapie Fondo with 8k ft of climbing? I did not.

Mine will probably be for sale soon. It's a great bike, just not for me.

been riding mine a good amount, and frankly really enjoying it!

the ride quality is wonderful, and compared to my Melee- has much more personality.

Is it the lightest? no.
Is it the most aero and the most stiff? most certainly not.

But for me, it's wonderful. It's a joy to ride and a wonderful companion when I'm flaneur-ing on KC roads.


when I want to ride fast.. I just pick my Melee instead!
