 Interesting facts about Time 

  • Time bikes are built in France and the carbon is manufactured there, quite rare for carbon lay ups to be done outside of Asia these days
  • Time invented the first floating clipless pedals in the late 80’s which allowed for lateral movement of the riders foot.
  • Tom Boonen rode a Time bike when he won the world road race championships in Madrid, as did Paolo Bettini and more recently Thomas Voeckler and Sylvain Chavanel.
