After a hospital trip, and plenty of lingering pain from a woman in a Pontiac who wanted to see me on the pavement rather than my bike, a silver lining appears. That silver lining is a 2007 BMC TT03 Time Machine.










At some point this coming season I'll be doing some upgrades on it, but right now I feel like taking her to bed with me.

Wise cracks about the ugly green bachelor couch are welcome.

the best part is....you now have a bike better than the car that hit you.

Nice bike...but the couch really captivated my attention.  How could you put the bike next to it?  I think the value of your bike just went down

Now that you have the bike, you'll have to get the doping regimen from Astana and Phonak!

Nice ride, did you lace the wheels, pay a wheelbuilder or buy them pre-built? Have heard mixed reviews on the DT Swiss rims and want an owner's opinion on how they are. Thye look great on the net, but have been curious about durability and performance.

It's always great when you come out in one piece, let alone get new toys. Enjoy it in good health.

LOL! I don't think it's worth doping to get some AG wins, I'll probably just cut back on the beer and food intake a bit.

As for the wheels, they actually came on the bike and are nothing really special. Just DT Onyx hubs, straight gauge spokes and far too many of them. They are kinda heavy but they are aero. I have not put any real miles on them yet, but they look like they would be a better track rim rather than TT or tri. 2007 was the last year to buy the bike as a package, next year it becomes a frame only deal. I managed to get a fantastic deal on it from my sponsor Cycle to Fitness so I could not refuse.

I'm hoping to get some speedier wheels for it at some point this coming season, but I'll roll on these for now.

BTW, thanks for the compliments!

That is one sweet ride. Maybe it helps the recovery.

Nice ride! Which aero bars are on that bike? That looks like the proper way to do "s" bends...

They are just cheap Eastons, I'll be replacing them with carbon bling bars at some point.

Oh, she's nameless still and those are Time ATAC pedals on her right now. I have them on every bike I own, but I'll be upgrading to Time road pedals or something road specific for this gal.

Did you do like I did and start planning out the next ride while on the way to the hospital? I was laying there strapped to the backboard in the ambulance and trying to think about what I wanted out of a new bike. I went a pretty different direction from you though:

 

 

Changes from the picture include a black Thompson Elite zero setback to replace the DA post. Chris King spacers to match the headset & Newton stem to match the bars.
