Tim O'Donnell has been steadily rising in the ranks of Ironman pros, most recently taking the win over a very competitive field in Galveston at the Lonestar 70.3. We caught up with Tim for an exclusive interview and a closeup look at his bike, the new Argon E-118. Tim's bike is relatively straightforward, well-appointed, and ready to get down to business. A lot like its rider.
This new TRP brake is showing up on a lot of bikes now, but seems to require some slight design concessions. On the Argon, it meant using sidepull cable routing and exposing the brake housing. The Cannondale Slice RS uses this brake, and routes the cable through the steerer tube, but that still requires some exposed cable.
