Colnago, Time Pulse + anything else I buy

Posted on
  • Hello, LFGSS. Long time no speak...

    I purchased this Time Pulse on a complete whim, whilst I was on Facebook marketplace at the start of the 2020 lockdown. I've ridden it everyday since.


    The bike was essentially NOS, it was (as you'd expect) immaculate. It's still in fantastic shape, but obviously no longer NOS.

    Gotta say, I find this bike functional. It's carbon, lugged, dripping in Campagnolo, but it just doesn't 'do' anything for me. As a tool, I cannot fault it. I was thinking possibly of adding some all black wheels and gumwalls, and see how I feel then.

    I think this is maybe because I don't really know that much about the Time brand. I understand they are French and create tour worthy bikes, but there's not that much info on the net, other than it being a 2009 bike.

    I have just changed the pedals, saddle, seatpost, handlebars and bar tape. Oh, and tyres.

    I still have my colnago, which I have stripped for parts and I plan to build again, this time with all the drool worth parts I wanted as a teenager + etap (maybe, possibly, probably)

  • Looks in really good condition the frame and groupset apart from the front braking surface looks worn .

  • That's a classic Time, love that era

  • Sub’d big fan of the young-timer carbon Time… I’d transfer the Campagnolo group to the nag and etap this - fun fast lightweight tool 👌

    Any idea what this is like for tyre clearance at the rear?

  • Front braking surface is fine, looks super concave but it's darker with dirt.

    Clearance is actually pretty good! Running on 23c, could squeeze 25.

  • I’ve got some DT Swiss oxic rims on bitex hubs with 23c corsa gum walls (measure 25mm on the rim) I’d sell if you wanted some black wheels for this - oxic coating so brake track will stay black etc

  • If these were Shimano freewheel not campag, I'd be interested in them...

  • yup - shimano 11 speed freehub, pretty much unridden (sorry for derailing project thread!)

  • TIME for sale if anyone is interested!
