Concept

Aerodynamics
The list is long but it sums up to one thing: SubA. Years of BMC aerodynamic testing and engineering have resulted in one amazing bike system. How many bikes can break the sub-eight hours benchmark of world-class Ironman distance? As Andreas Raelert proved with the fastest ever bike split during his Ironman distance world record race in Roth 2011, the timemachine TM01 will not hold you back.

Integration
timemachine TM01 has set a new benchmark in terms of system integration. Brakes, cable routing, Di2 components, stem and seat post clamping … nothing is left in the wind slowing you down. And it looks great, too.

Adjustability
Positioning is crucial. An athlete can only deliver his best performance if he is correctly fitted, and the fastest bike won’t help him otherwise. The timemachine TM01 modular integrated stem system (p2p) provides a combination of 32 different handlebar positions to help you find the perfect fit, together with a four setback options seat post. You can relax and ride faster on a longer distance. Think about it, it makes a lot of sense.

UCI approved
Despite looking illegally fast, the TM01 (except size L) is UCI approved and therefore can be used in any UCI road time trial – just as Cadel Evans used it on the penultimate stage of the 2011 Tour de France to secure overall victory.

technology

p2p

position to perform

Maximum adaptability thanks to the p2p concept.

The best "position to perform" derives from the maximum adjustability using the stem, the handlebar and the saddle position.


Tri Angle Concept -
The Tri Angle Concept allows the stem to be adjusted in 30 different ways.

The principle is as simple as it is brilliant: the variable arrangement of triangular forms and spacers allows both positive and negative degrees to be achieved at any required length of the stem. This option is available ex works and is supplied with every TM01.

The variability enables the rider to set his ideal position. It also allows him to refine and modify the ideal seated position further in the course of the season's preparations without any great effort. All that needs to be done is add, replace or remove tri angle modules.


21_21 offset -
The p2p concept is supplemented by a further feature that enables the saddle position to be adjusted to extreme requirements: 21 mm forward and 21 mm back.

This allows BMC to cover the extreme seated positions for triathlons. The reach of the saddlebar permits four different basic settings, while the whole reach of the bar can also be used to ride extreme positions.

subA

aerodynamic maximazation

Best aerodynamics - The sub A concept

The aerodynamics of the rider and the bike are influenced both by the position of the rider on the bike and by the aerodynamics of the bike itself.

subA refers to the maximization of the aerodynamics by minimizing the frontal area of the bike. This is generated by three core features:

Tear drop 3:1 - The frame shape is formed aerodynamically in a length to width ratio of 3:1.

Truncated profile - Instead of continuing the surface in a teardrop shape, a straight break-away edge is worked into the profile. The turbulence can be managed and controlled by this. The minimized raw materials also reduce the weight and increase the stiffness of the frame due to the edge.

Tripwire - Tripwire is the "tripwire for the air", originally an achievement from aeronautics: special wind curbs are molded into the carbon frame so that the slightest turbulence is created directly above the surface. A sort of air cushion forms for the wind flow.

BB30

interface

BB30 crankset

With these cranks, the bearings are pressed directly into the frame. The diameter of the axle is 30 mm. The advantages of a BB30 crankset are greater stiffness with a lower total weight.

This online tool is only a guideline to help you decide which size and which stem configuration to choose in order to reach a given handlebar position.
