New for this year, Shimano has released their second electronic shifting group, Shimano Ultegra Di2. This 2012 component group includes a host of improvements, which will be transfered over to the next iteration of Shimano Dura Ace Di2.
The TCR Advanced has a conventional seatmast and is supposed to be 15% more comfortable because of this. It is made out of Toray’s T-700 fibers. The dropouts and bottom bracket sleeve is made out of aluminum, and the whole design uses a more modular monocoque construction.
The 2011 TIME RXR-S have started to trickle in. We are receiving the Di2 models as well. They are a month or so late, but they are well worth the wait. These bikes come with a full warranty from TIME USA, and in case of the RXR-S, it’s a lifetime warranty. The 2011 model has got BB30 and an upgraded front end, that will suppress any high speed wobbling.

I’ve been interested in TIME modules for a while. When I was looking for a high-end road bike frame, this one made the short list. However, a TIME rep told me that a BB30 Di2-version of the RXR would be shortly released. That meant that I had to wait. So I waited.
Finally, a few months ago we got word about the new RXR-S line from TIME, which included my personal favorite color, the VIP. The VIP module is quite stunning up close and personal. It’s hard to describe if you haven’t seen it yourself. There are a lot of details hidden away in the BoB paint scheme.
For 2011, the RXR-S has some modifications to make the bike a lot stabler. That coupled with the fact that the VIP comes in a Di2-version makes this my dream ride for 2011. I’ll have one on order shortly, wouldn’t you to order yours? Send us an email at asteriskcycles at gmail dot com to find out more.
The order came in within a few weeks and I was honestly surprised at how good this bike looked. The look is minimal, with the black and white.
Over the past week or so, customers have been admiring this new Pinarello Dogma 60.1 frame that was ordered for AH. AH had decided upon using a custom paint job thanks to Pinarello’s My Way customization scheme, which makes this frame stand out from the traditional Dogmas. He also ordered the Di2-compatible frame, which allows internal wiring of Shimano’s Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting group.
