I did a bit of work to my setup and decided to run the cables to the blip box through the same ports that DI2 was setup to run. I attached the 'mount' to the top of the brake cam housing after modifying the mount to fit the shape of the top of the brake cam housing. I clearanced around the sides of the center tab just a hare to fit the cables in. They don't rub or show any signs of issues (fraying, cutting) and I have quick access to the blip box for adjustments. I can also quickly disassemble this setup with a removal of the 4 cables, then a quick 1/2 turn on the blip box to access all the parts to disassemble and ship. Setup time when arriving for IMFL in Nov 2019 was about 25 min for the whole bike. I kept the plugs and caps for all the wires so they're protected when in the bike box.

I rarely need to make derailleur adjustments, but if I do, I just need to remember to think backwards for the whole Front vs Rear thing. Have just over 3200 miles on this setup w/ no cable issues.

A few of you have asked me to develop a rear box for the BMC TM01. I finally located one locally to measure and test fit. Here is the production version on a small frame.

Hi,

I'm about to buy a TM01 and I have a few questions. My height is 183cm and my inseam length is 83cm. Now I'm using trek emonda slr 56 size and it feels a bit big.
Only one M/S size is available at local seller. Do you think if I buy a size M/S TM01, would I have problems with fit?

Hi,

TT Bike fitting is somewhat complicated and I'm not an expert so just for comparison I'm also about 183cm tall w/83cm inseam and was comparing BMC TM01 Disc size M/L vs L. After a fitting session purchased a size L in Dec 2018 as the pad stack height upper limit w/Flat base bar on size M/L was near my lower limit.

I am 189cm and ride a M/S. With UCI limits, there isn't much difference between available geometries. Main difference is stack height, as mentioned. I have abnormally long humerus (upper arm bone), so I have a larger drop and it works for me. If you don't have much of a drop from saddle to pads, then maybe you will opt for a larger size. Also it depends on the bar you get. The V cockpit sits much higher up than the flat cockpit, almost giving it the stack height of a frame size or two up.

Thanks for quick reply, mentioned bikes cockpit is flat.


If it helps, I can give details of my body measurements.

Hi,

I have got two questions regarding the BMC Timemachine disc.

1) Regarding the spacers of the flat cockpit: I would need a stack of 40 mm higher than the maximum (e.g. 670mm instead of 630mm). Is it possible to buy additional extra spacers in order to have a more upright position?

I would almost fit on a V-Cockpit (665mm of max stack on a ML), but I am not keen of the looks of it. This brings me to my second question.

2) Is it complicated to switch between the V-Cockpit and the flat cockpit?

I am buying this bike as my first TT bike for doing my first IM next summer. I am doing Sprints, OD’s since 2014 (on a Canyon Endurace with clip-ons).

I think that on the long run, I will mostly use this bike for shorter races, as the burden of the training load for an IM is too heavy for me (at least this is what I am thinking now). Thus a position with less stack might be possible for those shorters races. Therefore I might replace the V-Cockpit with the flat cockpit back after my having done my IM, although this is a costly solution.

As background information, I made a bike fit this week in order to get my stack (670mm) and reach (400mm) values. These values are rather upright as I am approx. 6 feet (1m84) tall with 33 (87cm) inseam (rather shorter legs with an athletic torso).

I am similar stature to you, I sized up to a Large for the TM with flat cockpit. You will be maxed out even on the large for flat cockpit stack. To your original question, you would need to buy the Aeria Riser kit from Profile Designs. This will enable you to go higher on the ML. Handling might be terrible.

Very helpful, this is what I was searching for, thanks. It is a bit of a PITA because with my current stack and reach numbers I might fit (with some tweaks) on a MS, ML or L. Maybe it would be wiser to look for another frame with a different geometry.
