Time VX Edge

Recently saw this repainted Time VX Edge on a Japanese twitter feed.
Would love to see some pictures from other VX owners. Also, does your VX fit 25mm tires? Hoping to build mine up by November.

Bringing things back to 2005.

Finally built mine up with modern campagnolo components. My first real carbon bike, other than a week long flirt with a Guru carbonio back in 2004.

Bike fits 27mm tires, is light, stiff, handles well.

If the geo worked, I'd have TWO Times. Small is too short in the TT, medium is too long. Killer bike you have there.

Who knew you were local? Today's weather was a bit chilly but at least no wind; it's the wind that kills me. RSC is a nice spot to warm up. I'll keep an eye open for a Time out on the roads!

I've got two VXR Proteam bikes, love them both, geometry is great, stiff, and still easily fit 27mm tires without issue. Best of luck and look forward to the build

Very true. Kudos to you. I wasn't man enough to ride today. Weather here in fall and spring can really catch us off guard. I'm already dreaming of someplace warm!

The VXR was easily the best carbon bike I've ever been on. Those French guys make great stuff.
