MAXIMUM TIRE WIDTH

700x32-45c Gravel Tire

650x50c Gravel Tire

That's a bit more like it (and some pretty cool paint jobs)!!

Geometry is a bit on the aggressive side for any chunky stuff though.

A nice addition to the line-up from Time. This firmly puts the existing ADHX as an all-road frame, which was a bit too road-like for a gravel frame (which can also be a good thing if you just want a road bike with more clearance).

The ADHX 45 is more gravel themed compared to the ADHX based on the geometry table. They did increase the wheelbase with 15mm, chainstays with 10mm and lowered the bb by 4mm so it does give it a more planted feel. The main triangle seems to have stayed the same, but they did slack the head- and seattube very minimally.

Possibly they could've done more, but overall I'd say they stayed with a geometry that suits a lot of riders.

Pretty cool bikes and would have considered for my new bike but those slack seat tubes are pretty old school.

I'm seriouly interested in this bike and was waiting for this update.

I posted this elsewhere but it does look like they used the same main triangle and modified the rear (longer chainstays/wider clearance) and fork (taller, more rake etc.) but by just eyeballing the increased fork height looks to have pushed geo up and back slightly (seat angle now 72.8 [was 73], similar change in head angle, bb drop now 71mm [was 74], slight increase stack/decrease reach).

I'm not sure if I would notice this handling wise but may wait for some early reviews etc particularly when used with 650b / 47+ tires

Have popped some Terravail Rutland 650 x 2.1 in a sample frame... has reasonable clearance :D

The gap between the downtube and the frontwheel seems very small for a gravel bike that you'd ride in mud and dirt.

To me it is a road bike with massive clearance. Albeit a slighly modified ADH. That was achieved also by lenthening the chainstays, the easiest way to do that. I cannot imagine that the bike rides real gravel that well. There are so many brands now that have developped progressive racy gravel bikes that work well on the road: Addict Gravel, Orbea Terra, Crux, Mog....

Now Time has a way of crafting bikes so beautifully. But, I think they might new another try to make a full-on gravel bike.

Frame in size 54 is 1205g with the all bolts for bottle mounts seat, clamp, hanger and rear cover for electronic shifting. I have removed the internal cable guide. Fork is 405g uncut if I remember correctly, waiting for the shifters to start building it. Thru axles are 74g in total.

Compared to my Exploro Ultra in 56, it's a bit heavy, since ultra frame is 1198g without any hardware and uncut fork was 439g. Time fork came at ok length so no cutting now until the fit will be dialed.

Just a mockup

Mine just arrived.... and another fraembuilder just got back to me so I likely will be going in that direction.

If anyone is interested in a size MED (same paint as above) brand new send me a message. Save on taxes and some off the top.

Thanks for posting the weights! Time makes such good looking frames. GL with the build!
