BMC's new timemachine 01 disc...



and their new timemachine road 01 (only avail in disc)...



i thought the time machine 01 had a funky but attractive look to it.

their new road 01 looks very nice, imo.

I've got the TM02.

That actually looks pretty good for a disc TT bike.

I want to see the non-drive side of the TM01. Looks like there are fairings on both calipers.

The TM01 had that awesome brake booster built into the stem. Sure it added a lot of setup and complexity, but I thought it was a real cool design.
Now, with the disc brakes, I guess it clears up room for a flat kit or multi tool.

According to Bikeradar, it’s space for an etap blip box and allows the brake hoses to coil so the bars can be removed for packing and travel.

I love what they did with the bottle cages and flat kit on the Road Machine. They need to incorporate that into a triathlon bike asap.

The bigger/longer the gooseneck on those bmc’s the uglier they get. It’s like the speed concept, a high far stem and high riser makes them look worse than what they are with a ‘normal’ fit and set up

Looks decent, but it appears that the brake fairings are cosmetic only.

Because it does not look like they are in the inside, only on the outside, which is kinda odd ... unless the fairings are mostly for looks.

Parlee had the fairings on the TTIR... looks good.

Hope they addressed the front wheel hitting the frame issue... and give ppl a choice on getting the flat cockpit instead of V. Otherwise I'm still on the fence.

The TMR01 on the other hand... I'm totally for.

agreed, but if you are of the lower stack population you can make it look nice with the flat cockpit

it's probably coming.. but the bike is like only 1 year old or so. So too soon for that kind of change.

You think it may look ugly, but I think it actually makes a lot of sense in having the arm pad stacks inserting into the "stem" like a seat post.

I think this design is much safer and may be even lighter than the clobbered together 10cm of stacked spacers, held together by skinny bolts, that most AG triathletes use.

I like the concept, engineering and actually would love to have that V front end.
