I'm looking forward to start the build up of a BMC TM01 Disc - will probably have some questions once the remaining components arrive.

How did it go? Fully assembled? Do you have any pics?

Also, can anyone let me know how hard are the new TM01 (integrated cockpit) are to pack / unpacked?

I’ve been told it’s Quite hard and you need a bit of technical experience but thought the whole process with the integrated cockpit was for it to be easy?

Any idea on weight for the disc version as well?

Thx

The build went well but it was a little tough finding all the Shimano Components. I went with "Flat" vs. the V - Cockpit which was quite easy to assemble and work with - less complicated then the Trek SC Gen 2 I built up a couple years ago. The Disc brake fairings look nice but are difficult when installing/aligning/realigning the rotors/calipers plus they have tiny screws. The bike is a size L and weighs about 19 lbs as pictured.

Since I live in MN I've ridden it about 5 minutes on the smart rollers ... waiting for a Trainer to arrive and eventually summer.

Looks great, hopefully no fork/Frame flex this time!
what is the highest you were able to get with Stack/Reach with the flat cockpit?

On a separate note, i have been struggling to find a 15% riser on the V-Cockpit (horizontal bolts) but finally found one available at Revolver Wheels website, might make me stick to the V-Cockpit for a little bit longer.

For Packing/Unpacking of V-Cockpit, you need to disconnect all Di2 wires (when packing) and feed them again through the fork and in the frame(Assembling), this isn't hard, but you have to practice it few times first. also need a 10 NM torque wrench. but it is pretty straight forward after that.

690mm was the tallest pad stack with the bar in the hands up postion. I built it at 670mm for cable/wire lengths and will probably settle between 640-660.

Pad Reach is 510mm with mounts in rear position and cups in the middle. By moving the mounts to the forward position and cups one in front of middle I would think 530mm would be close to the max reach.

I can detach the cockpit with 5 torx screws and disconnect the DI2 wires and wouldn't need to re-feed any wires/cables through. Could use velcro/foam to secure to frame/fork for travel but might need to take stack spacers out depending on travel case size.

Here is a picture:

Thanks for the info, i have a Flat cockpit but still hesitating on installing it cuz of stack and reach.
Your junction box looks much cleaner from the previous rim brake version, i am assuming of the brake boost setup and that it accommodates the SRAM junction box now.

Really cool! Thanks for the info and pics.

The cockpit and di2 box looks very clean compared to the non-Disc version.

QQ... did you bought it at your LBS or online. Reason I ask is because of fit as the reach and stack on the BMC website is measured differently as I think it is measured from the floor and not from bottom bracket. Or am I completely wrong?

As mentioned before, I have a 51 Cervelo P2 and had a proper fit so I have my measurements but hard to pass these into BMC.

Thx

I purchased the frameset from LBS and they have access to a reach/stack configurator of sorts. Below are the output ranges which I used to select my frame size.

Pad Stack/Reach for TM01 Disc:

M/L - flat low base bar
Stack: 555-625
Reach: 422-508

M/L - flat high base bar
Stack: 560-630
Reach: 422-508

M/L - V cockpit
Stack: 616-665
Reach: 400-563

L - flat low base bar
Stack: 595-665
Reach: 438-524

L - flat high base bar
Stack: 600-670
Reach: 438-524

L - V cockpit
Stack: 656-705
Reach: 417-580

It stinks how limited reach is without the super tall V cockpit

Thinking about the Disc version for a new bike. Are the reach measurements to the back of the pad or center?

When I compare to my Large w/Flat Base bar it looks like the list of measurements from the BMC configurator was to the back of the pad.

TM02 crew checking in. just put some zipp vuka stealth bars on the beast to clean up that front end (the stock cockpit on the TM02 105 is a disaster). anyone else have stealths on theirs? care to share pics? do you like them?

Hi,

does anyone of you know if I can get fit Zipp 858 NSW with 25mm tires into a BMC TM01 2013 (first model)?

Thanks for help

I had a 2016 TM01, I couldn’t run a 25 up front because of the rake. On the rear a 25 was fine but my limit screws were pushed out at almost max. I didn’t run 858s. I went with a 23/25 combo

This was my experience too. Hed Jet Plus with Conti 4000 sii. The Zipp wheels and a less oversized tire might sneak a 25 up front.
