Thanks. Torhans is for the flat kit, i don't like the look of stuff behind the saddle
- Combining 10 & 11 speed didn't fully work out. I ended up staying with 10-speed. SRAM shifters and SRAM Force rear derailleur, though kept 11-speed Ultegra front derailleur.
- Cried Uncle and had Palo Alto bikes wrench on it to dial in the brakes, add in-line brake cable adjusters, and, don't laugh, but install drop bars and first gen Ultegra brake levers. I am a pathetic descender and train in the coastal hills of the SF Bay Area; aero base bars just don't feel secure enough to me while descending. Plus, my two favorite races are Wildflower and Donner Lake, both of which have gnarly descents.
Regardless, PABikes did a sweet job and braking and shifting are excellent.
- Got a Hed Jet FR disc; it just arrived. I am amazed at how seamless the joint looks.
Finally figured out how to post picks with the new Flickr interaction
PS: pretty cool that the Triathlete Buyer's Guide features the BMC TM-01 on the cover!
If someone could measure the grommet and let me know the dimensions (a, b and c in diagram below) it would be really helpful in finding a replacement. I wish I had measured mine before I lost it!
Edit: I've managed to get the measurements now. In case it's any use to anyone else they are: a: 14mm, b: 5mm, c: 10mm.
First question still stands though, anyone know where to get a replacement?!

Based on all this, would i assume a BMC would only be made to fit with a very high front end? Im guessing the tm01 is a long and low type of bike, thus probably not a great fit for me since my p2 isnt ideal and has been made to fit somewhat? Im just curious as to how a bmc would look at 'full front end stack'. Apologies to the above person but i really dont want to be perched that high. Should i look elsewhere? The shop i was going to buy the bike from isnt local i would need it shipped so it would be bought sight unseen
IMO, the M/L Time Machine is basically the same fit as a 54 Cervelo P*.
For the same reach and higher stack, a large Trek Speed Concept or large Specialized Shiv *might* be a better start.
It's not a good deal if it doesn't fit. The integrated stem of the TM01 will look like a cobra ready to strike once it's dialed in for the pad stack.
