timemachine TM01


timemachine TM01 Frameset

The fastest bike on earth

The story of the timemachine TM01 is one of success: Cadel Evans rode into yellow on the final day of racing and won the Tour de France thanks to maximum aerodynamics and a perfect position on his TM01. Shortly thereafter, Andreas Raelert used the same advantages to establish a new worldrecord over the Ironman distance.The BMC timemachine TM01 delivered arguably the two most important results in against-the-clock racing. That speaks volumes.

  • 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.
  • DTi

    Dual Transmission Integration

    Rider's choice - Aesthetics should not be an afterthought - DTi allows BMC frames to look like the precision machines we designed them to be, regardless of drivetrain variations.

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 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 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 TM01 is the perfect time trial or triathlon bike.


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.


Except for the large-sized frameset, the 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.

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.
