BMW Group DesignworksUSA unveils NeilPryde Bayamo bicycle for time trial athletes

With the London Olympics 2012 done and dusted, athletes need to be in form for the next four years, too, right? Well, to keep a check on “the rigorous demands of time trial athletes,” NeilPryde Bikes is out with two new New NeilPryde bikes named the Bayamo and Bayamo+, made for their collaboration with BMW Group Designworks USA’s team in Asia. Created using “high-modulus, unidirectional C6.7 carbon fiber,” the Bayamo’s frame is strong, elegant, and lightweight. Considering that aerodynamic efficiency is very important for time-trial cyclist, which has been well-addressed thanks to “computational fluid dynamic analysis and wind tunnel testing,” has been closely maintained through the design, with all drivetrain and shifting cables laid down within the frame.

A cut above the original, the Bayamo+, on the other hand, boasts of “proprietary QFit stem design that is adjustable for height and ride angle” for a power drive.
The Bayamo is now retailing at $2,750, and the Bayamo+ will be available starting 2013 for $5,000 US dollars.
If you are looking for the bikes “with a range of Shimano groupset, Mavic wheels, and premium components,” then the set will then cost you between $3,095 and $10,000.
