    Thank you Clubman.
    I do no intend to become a contender at national or even state level, I just want to hold myself on a TT. And I think you might be right. I still have an Mielec LowPro somewhere, maybe I should build it up as an TT ;)

    Although there are aero gains to be made on the frame, the main thing you are getting is a bike with geometry suited to a good position, that's where you gain the most.

    That was my hope. I saw this offer https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anze­ige/zeitfahrrad-52er-rahmen/942258482-21­7-5903

    As there is no description, except for the fact that the backwheel is not part of the deal, I hope the german language isn´t too much of burden.

    I would sell nearly all the parts, but on an sq lab saddle, rival 1 x 11 and maybe some Aliexpress Carbon Bars and Stem.

    What size road bike do you ride? Do you have a fairly aggressive/aero position? What's your budget?

    I am 5´11 and I ride 54cm tt and fairly agressive Position. I am looking to spend around 500 Euro for the frame. But I would like to spend less ;)

    I can borrow a Trispoke and i have velotec skinsuit. Some Mates can also lend me an Giro Aerohead for the races.

    Before I started cycling I ran quite a lot and after a Marathon I thought: Let´s do a Triathlon. So I bought my first roadbike. After a couple of months I stopped running at all.

    Now there is a local tt event, always in march and october. Same course different races. And I really want to compete on a tt bike. After reading about richard bussell and his bike I wanted to do my own build. But I have no idea what frame to start with. Not with the fitting, but with the aero gains. A more experienced friend through my plan of building up an old frame out of the window, as I would any advantage I can get. But I thought that 80 % of drag comes from your body and so a more aero position would benefit me more than aero brake covers or so on. I was looking at an Canyon Speedmax (the Aluminium one) or maybe an Argon 18 E112. Building it up 1x11 and with some spare parts. I can get some race wheels from friends.

    What would you guys reckon? Can I build an aero enough bike on the base of an older tt frame or should I save up?

    Cheers,
    Jan
