these events. In reality, the bike you own is the perfect bike.

bike, as they have collaborated to produce a special edition bike.
It's adorned with the striking new 3T Torno carbon fibre aero
cranks and a THM cockpit, and it's all painted orange with a fade
from front to rear. We're told it really 'pops' in the
