Last month, Time announced they were launching a limited edition Paolo Bettini VXRS frameset – commemorating "Il Grillo’s" ("the cricket") 2006 World Championships victory.
As previously mentioned, only 300 framesets will be available worldwide, and all of them will be numbered and signed by the Italian rider.
In addition, the VXRS will be made to the same specifications and geometry as the original model, to include a traditional threaded bottom bracket and Time’s Translink seat mast.
Well, last weekend we got to see one in the flesh. The very first one in fact – #001 – 300 !
Special thanks to Gilles Lalonde of Time USA, and our friends at ATA Cycle in Concord, Massachusetts.
Feast your eyes on this beauty. 🙂
