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.

Please not that these photos were hastily taken during the unboxing and build. I am planning to do a really nice set of photos in an outdoor setting very soon.

Before I get to the pictures, here are the components and specs (some of which are not stock, noted below):

Fork: Scott Plasma 2 Carbon / Integrated / 1-1/8″
Headset: Ritchey PRO Integrated / 45mm / Drop-in
Seatpost: Scott Plasma 2 Carbon w/ Ritchey WCS Adjustable Head
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Ultegra RD-6800 / 2×11 Speed
Front Derailleur: Shimano Ultegra FD-6800
Shifters: Shimano Dura Ace SL-BSR1 Bar End

Crankset: Shimano Ultegra FC-6800 (39/53) / 172.5mm

Note that I’ll be selling the stock wheelset (Syncros Race 27 Aero Profile). They are brand new / zero miles, and come with the original QRs. Let me know if you’re interested.

Okay, here are some photos! Click any image to enlarge…

The box is a little damp, it was pouring when UPS showed up.

Finally, here’s the completed bike with the Zipps:

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:

Going... The bike matches my team colors perfectly!

    • I’m pretty happy with how the bike came out. I’m looking forward to getting it dialed in/fitted and putting some hard miles on her.

      Yeah, I’ve been playing guitar for more than 30 years now. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it at least in passing a few times, but it’s not a passion like it was when I was younger.
