Time Trial bike unveiled: Scott Plasma 20 unboxing and build
I completed the build on my new Time Trial bike, and thought I’d throw a few photos of the unboxing and final build this morning.
The bike is a 2014 Scott Plasma 20 and, just as advertised, it arrived brand new and still in the original box straight from Scott.

Note that I did the build in my home gym and not my shop (see yesterday’s blog).
I’ll be cutting down the steerer tube/slamming the stem sometime within the next week.
I took her for a short ride yesterday and she rode great! I even suited up in my full TT gear: skinsuit, shoe covers, TT helmet. Here are a couple of crappy shots captured by my security cameras:
