Review of condition
The frame set is in excellent condition. It is clean and ready for build. There are no scratches, chips or flaking in the finish of the frame. There are no cracks or bulges that raise concerns about the structural integrity of the frame or the fork. The rear drop outs are in alignment with the centerline of the frame and the rear derailleur hanger is straight and undamaged. The axle adjusting bolts in the rear drop outs are not missing and undamaged. The mounts for the cantilever rear brake arms are straight. The rear brake kit is complete. The rear brake faring is undamaged and it secures properly to the frame. The seat post clamp is complete. The front derailleur hanger is riveted securely to the seat tube and it is undamaged. The steer tube is not cracked or flaking and it is uncut. The mounts for the cantilever front brakes are straight. The front brake kit is complete. The front fork has safety tabs. The headset is complete. The water bottle bolts are not stripped. The bottom bracket shell is not damaged. Frame and Wheel notes that SRM or Quarq power meters do not fit on the frame set due to the size of the BB86 bottom bracket shell. Traditional crank sets and Stages Cycling power meters work fine. Please see the Frame and Wheel review of the Austro-Daimler tt Carbon for more information.

Frame and Wheel conclusion
Frame and Wheel’s view is that this Austro-Daimler tt Carbon Champagne will make an excellent choice for the performance cyclist who seeks a carbon frame set for time trials. It will also suit the masters category cyclist who seeks to channel the strength and determination of his golden youth in the race against the clock. The younger rider will appreciate its functionality, design and comparable value. Built up with Zipp wheels, Stages Cycling power meter, Shimano 7900 drive train and 3T Brezza II aero bars, the frame set will be transformed into a fast time trial bike with a distinctive voice that speaks of classic cycling with a contemporary vocabularys. The new owner will also be for a time one of two riders in the world on an Austro-Daimler tt Carbon time trial bike in the Champagne finish. Frame and Wheel is very pleased to have the company.
