The fastest bike on earth

The story of the timemachine is one of success: In 2011 Cadel Evans rode into yellow on the penultimate 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 delivered arguably the two most important results in against-the-clock racing. That speaks volumes. The TM02 borrows from the TM01’s design principles and geometry, and was designed for those looking for the TM01 timemachine’s incredible performance, but in a more economical build package.

    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 TM02 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 TM02 with maximum adjustability of the seatpost. 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 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 TM02 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.


Except for the large-sized frameset, the TM02 is UCI compliant and ready to hit the start line.
