For those with the 2017/2018 TM01/TM02 and riding with Di2, can I check how is the battery installed?

I'm thinking of getting the bike, but am not sure how the battery will be installed? From the website, it only states "installed with properly sized foam".

Hello guys,

Do you know where I could order this spare part? If this could be considered a spare part LOL, lost it during a training session :(

Thanks in advance.

Evans cycles in the UK. Speak to their special order team and they seem to be able to supply most spares within 10-14 days. I've have lots of rubber plugs, fork buffers and the like off them in the past.

Does the rear storage box on the 2017 models offer an aero benefit that exceeds the weight of the box?

Bike shop finally finished this build. TM02. SRAM Red FD/RD, Crank (165), Quarq PM, Q-rings (50T), 3T Revo aerobars w/Zipp ski bend extentions, TriRig Omega X front brake, Adamo PS1.1.

No, my saddle is not too high and the downtube cage is for training only.

To answer your question walfisch, the Di2 battery location is precut/predrilled into some black polystyrene at the bottom of the rear seatpost mount hole. It fits the BT-DN110 perfectly. I used a 550mm wire to Junction B routing under the bottom bracket spindle sleeve and it's long enough to be able to pull it out and have it clear the seatpost hole for servicing. One note, it's hard to get out without some pliers shaped to get a secure hold.

For context and/or to anticipate any other Di2 questions, I just purchased a clearance 2017 TM02 3 which I stripped bare and transferred Di2 from my road bike with clip-ons.

Here is the breakdown of the Di2 components with their weights from a calibrated lab balance:
Shimano Dura-Ace ST-R9160 Dual Control Di2 TT Levers 127.7g
Shimano Dura-Ace SW-R9160 Bar-End Di2 TT Shifters 36.8g
Shimano SM-EW90-B Di2 Junction A 14.6g
Shimano SM-JC41 Di2 Internal Junction B 4.1g
Shimano EW-WU111 Di2 D-Fly Wireless Unit 3.0g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 400mm E-Tube Left TT Brake Wire 4.6g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 400mm E-Tube Right TT Brake Wire 4.6g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 600mm E-Tube Left TT Shifter Wire 5.9g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 600mm E-Tube Right TT Shifter Wire 5.9g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 600mm E-Tube Down Tube Wire 6.6g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 550mm E-Tube Battery Wire 6.0g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 350mm E-Tube Front Derailleur Wire 3.7g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 600mm E-Tube Rear Derailleur Wire 6.6g
Shimano EW-SD50 Di2 300mm E-Tube D-Fly Wire 3.2g
Shimano BT-DN110 Di2 Internal Battery 51.4g
Shimano EW-SD50I Di2 E-Tube Wire Holders (x4) 1.1g
Shimano SM-GM01 Di2 Wire Grommets (x2) 0.5g

Have fun!

Hi TimeMachine owners.

I'm about to buy the TimeMachine TM01 2018 THREE but not sure which size to go for. I'm 6'2 and 77kg (tall and slim). I typically ride a 57" road frame (TMR02 2016 actually). I guess I'm either a M-L or a L, but don't know which. The geometry is available here: https://www.bmc-switzerland.com/...imemachine-01-three/ (scroll down and select geometry).

Any ideas? Or anyone with a similar size to me with any experience?

Thanks,
Adam

I’d go to a fitter that knows the Timemachine. I’m 6’1 and was either a M-L or a M-S, I ended up going with the M-L. Try them both before buying, if you’re going to spend 9k, get the correct one for you. Don’t compare the TMR01 to the TM01...WAY way different.

I am interested in the same bike but can't find squat on how it tests in the tunnel. I have the old TM01 and BMC will only say the new version tests faster. I'm also looking at the Quintana Roo PR 6. I am getting a new fit tomorrow on a Guru machine to see which geometry works better for me.

I would recommend Large, M-L might be small in the reach, that being said, the TM01 has a strange fitting system, but they have an online excel file explaining the differences in all sizes and the range of pad/reach of every possible configuration of the bike.

If you know ur Stack and reach just check their sizing excel file(i couldn't find it on the website anymore, but your retailer should have it),
It helped me a lot with figuring out the correct size when ordering mine.

I am 183cm 75Kg and normally ride 56,54 based on the frame ... M-L was good for me.
Note that you will get the V-cockpit stock on the bike which means that you can't change stack without changing the reach; lowering the pads will significantly reduce the reach of the bike, there is no way around this.
Also note that the reach numbers on the website/sheet will be based on the BB, which doesn't take in account the forward seat-post position for triathletes.

Overall, i don't think you can judge your fit based on another bike fit, TM01s are quite different in size cuz of the V system + dual seat post positions, you will have to look at their sizing sheet and do some testing with a bike fitter on sample pad/reach numbers (from the sheet) before ordering a size.

Hope this helps.
