PNG - 307.1 kb The new TMS Evo 3, developed by Thibaut Marriaux and the Bikevision team, arrived on the market at the start of September. It is without doubt one of the most aesthetically and technically innovative bikes of the year. We recently tested the Evo 3, which was on offer at €1499 with components from the old TMS range, to celebrate its launch (TMS Evo 3 Crash Test). We fell for fluid lines of the bike, which sets itself apart from most other current production bikes, at first glance. It is far sexier in real life than in the photos! The bike rides cleanly and feels very well balanced. Above all, the bike is packed with innovations that make it very interesting for comp riders: an excellent tensioning system that allows for easy and precise adjustment that remains in place even when the rear wheel is removed, an integrated bashring and stays formed from a single curved tube!

PNG - 277.8 kb One thing did disappoint us on our test bike however: we didn’t have the right cranks, and with the ones we used instead, the chain rubbed on them. In the end, it was simply a case of putting a spacer between the crank and the freewheel to remedy the problem. Thibaut Marriaux assured us that the complete bikes were built in such a way that chain rub was avoided completely. Even better, the TMS Shop have just received the new cranks and rear hub, meaning that the chain-line and tension are perfect for the bike!

Thibaut has sent us some high-res (1024 pixels) studio photos of the Evo 3 frames and bikes, as well as these new cranks and hubs. Click on a photo below to enlarge and begin the slideshow!
