Do you need the Deda superbox top cover and spacers to have this setup?

To each his own. For me, I know it is only one sample, there have been no negatives so far (6y, 8000 km, 4 season riding).

The top cover is what arrived with the bar. One of superbox spacers was used to achieve a required stack. Actually, the mecanic cut the spacer in half, because where wasn't any 0.5cm spacer availible, and then sanded it down for a perfect match. All other spacers are what came with the handlebar.

Very handsome build. The reaction you get from riding it is the most important part of riding imo. Chapeau

New ADHX colours: https://www.timebicycles.com/products/a ... x-frameset

Seems like the scylon is gone too and the ADHX is moved to the road category.

Hi folks,
My ADH has developed a clicking sound on every pedal revolution for about 2 weeks. It is intermittent, but when it occurs, it is always when the right crankarm is going from about 11-2 o'clock. Generally I find it is worse when riding on the flat and better when climbing.

I have checked, disassembled, and regreased all the usual things: seatpost, seat rails, pedals, chainring bolts, even stem bolts and QR/frame contacts. Today I finally bit the bullet, and took out the crankset to see if I could find any problems with the bottom bracket. On the stand with the chain removed, it spun quite freely, but I was determined to fix this noise so I popped it off anyway. It turns out that the inner sleeve of the Rotor 46/24 bottom bracket I am using seems to be freely moving around inside the BB shell, even though the cups seem quite solid and I could not detect any play in them. This video shows the movement: https://youtube.com/shorts/CQeRGpTR3XQ?feature=share

Do you think this is a normal kind of play in that interior BB sleeve? I searched around a bit for schematics of the Rotor BB but couldn't find any. It seems strange to me that this kind of movement would be allowed by design, because I could definitely see riding over some hard cobbles causing it to jump around and impact/wear the axle.

If this is a fault, how could it have happened? The BB was installed by a local "high-end" shop when I received my ADH frameset last summer - I built up everything else than that myself.

Whenever I develop a click as you described, I remove the wheels and clean the dropouts, skewers- pretty much any point of contact between the bike and the wheels. This works nearly 100% of the time for me. Of course, I only figured this out after mostly disassembling the bike in question a few times over the years.

That doesn't look right. I'm not an expert in rotor bbs but I thought they came with a plastic sleeve with o-rings at either end. Designed to fit very snugly in the cups when they're pressed in.

Are there markings on the sleeve indicating it's a rotor part? Wondering if it was bodged with something else...

I vaguely remember (not 100% sure) Paul mentioning in a Mapdec youtube video on BBs that the connecting sleeve is just about long enough, but needs to be carefully manipulated in place when fitting the Rotor BB into a Time frame (it was a response to a comment under the video iirc).

This looks amazing! Is it a size L or XL?

Beautiful and balanced look. How do you find the handling with a shorter effective top tube compared to other frames with a longer top tubes? Curious about descending especially.
