Good looking bike. Looks like a speedmax met up with Trek's Speedbox. Not a bad thing though

we live in strange times where narrative has way more impact than utility or truth...

There doesn't appear to be much emphasis on nutrition or hydration storage, so it looks like it is intended to primarily be a TT bike. It doesn't look like they made a wide downtube to shield a bottle either. Makes me think they focused on narrow, so it might be a good low yaw bike.

This probably confirms that Slowman isn't in Kona to provide a write up about BMC's latest offering...

What's up with that seatpost? Setback options look pretty grim.

That is a bike I can live with. Hopefully there be a frame/Bar only option! Travelling with it and using it on a Trainer seems a little easier than the new Cervelo P5X! I can already imagine the BMC it with Zipp 808 and Super9! :)

Maybe we're not seeing it on this bike but I was told it would have an integrated front hydration system as well.

WTB: TriRig Omega SV (not x). PM me if you have one :)

Agreed: same setup as with the Canyon Speedmax which requires some small adjustments for integrated fuel system.

Similar to the Cube that Raelert rode last year. Looks cool.

Front brake must be tucked right behind the fork?

That is a very attractive triathlon bicycle.

Called it!

Remove the draft box, and the seatpost will slot further back into the seat tube, making it a UCI-legal bike.


Not a fan of what looks like horizontal rear drop outs.

I get the feeling it's really well hidden in the fork along the lines of the new Look TT bike.

Dunno....certainly appears to be low, but not so much long. We'll see once the geos are made available, I guess.

Very Canyon Speedmax /Trek SpeedConcept looking.. not impressed. I don't think it's enough to make me get rid of my TM01.

Would really like to know if they updated the quality/design of the rear brake and increased the clearance for wider wheel/tire combo.

I'm also interested in the brakes... and if the rumored front hydration was implemented.

Side note: does anyone know what the UCI's rules are going to be going forward for TT bikes? Not that I'm fast enough to be bound by them but I'm thinking about keeping my SC for TTs going forward.

Interesting that they're staying away from disc brakes... or at least offering a rim brake alternative.

I've done dozens of TTs and my bikes has never been measured. Never. Your SC should be fine.

All you need is a BTA and rear setup for just about any race. If you need a refill option just slide in a Torpedo in your BTA holder. The whole massive front hydration while fast really is not needed to keep hydrated.

USAC Nationals-grade events, except possibly Masters Nationals where they relaxed the enforcement, it could be measured.

I also heard that the 3-1 rule will get dumped. But as others have said, unless you are a professional racing in the Nat Champs, your chance that your to have your bike checked or measured is ZERO.
