The fastest bike on earth

The Timemachine TM01 was built to beat the clock; the fastest time-trial in the history of the Tour de France (Rohan Dennis, Tour de France 2015), a World Championship title in the Team Time Trial (BMC Racing Team – Ponferrada, Spain, 2014), Cadel Evans' decisive Tour de France stage win in 2011, numerous Ironman titles – this race machine's palamarès speak for themselves. The TM01's maximized aerodynamics and innovative adjustability continue to make it the winning choice for serious time-triallists over and over again.

Technology

  • Vmax

    p2p x subA

    The formula for high-performance cycling - Position to Perform maximizes adjustability of rider position while subA innovation creates an incredibly fast frame profile.

Applied aerodynamics

The SubA concept summarizes the aerodynamic advantages: truncated tubes strike a balance between the aerodynamically optimal shape and maximum rigidity. The tripwire technology is a stepped profile running along the leading edge of the frame tubing. The goal is to better control the airflow around the profiles and delay separation of the boundary layer from the tube surface – the same effect is generated by the dimples on a golf ball. Additionally, the lean front surface area of the Timemachine TM01 minimizes aerodynamic resistance.

Advanced integration

Uncompromised integration of frame, fork and components dramatically improves aerodynamic performance. The powerful brake calipers are cleanly tucked into the shape of the fork and chain stays, the seatpost is fixed by a hidden clamping mechanism, the battery unit needed for electronic groupsets is integrated into the seat tube, and all other electronic components disappear almost entirely into the frame.

Position to perform

BMC rounds off the technical characteristics of the Timemachine TM01 with maximum adjustability of the seatpost and stem. Thanks to this clever system (position to perform, or p2p for short) the conflict between aerodynamics and the rider’s natural biomechanics can be minimized. The integrated stem offers 32 different positioning options for the handlebar, while the seatpost can be set at a virtual seat tube angle ranging from 72 to 82 degrees with four additional saddle clamp positions. Having the possibility to always find the right fit means the Timemachine TM01 is the perfect time trial or triathlon bike.

On-trend

The BMC Dual Transmission integration (DTi) allows assembling the same frame with your choice of either electronic or mechanical groupsets without losses in aesthetics or aerodynamics. State of the art.

Race-ready

Except for the large-sized frameset, the Timemachine TM01 is UCI compliant and ready to hit the start line. Given how many races this bike won straight out of the gate, it’s likely you’re destined for the podium as well.

Reviews

Every superbike element is built into this dream frame. Complementing the integrated fork and adjustable stem is a striking frame shape that stands out from all others.

Sizing Tool

TM01 sizing process

A bicycle rider will only perform at his best if he is correctly positioned on his bike, especially for time trial and triathlon competitions. 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.
