There are three options for finding the right road bike for you:
- contact your nearest BMC retailer for the best first-hand advice with the help of the page 'Find a BMC retailer'
- use our 'Bike finder' to narrow down your selection by defining your preferences
- consult our road bike product page 'Road bike overview'
Every body, regardless of weight and height, is different. Your inseam-to-height ratio, the length of your arms, the size of your torso, etc. all factor into determining the correct sizing of a bike.
As a result, BMC highly suggests that you don't simply rely on our sizing charts, but also seek professional guidance and recommendations from your local BMC retailer.
Buying a BMC is an investment in your riding experience, ensure your ride is a great one by making sure you've been provided with the proper sized bike.
Please use our page 'Find a BMC retailer' to find your nearest BMC partner.
We sell our products exclusively through our independent BMC retailer network. The retailers are the best way to provide you with products, advice, service, and support. Please find your nearest BMC retailer with our page 'Find a BMC retailer'.
Yes, we do offer a frameset version of all our 01 series road bikes.
These numbers varies a bit with which family of bikes is being discussed - but generally speaking it's a way to understand the hierarchy of the family and sometimes the materials used in the construction. Our 03, 02, 01 system is a way of saying "good, better, best" reagrding the materials used for all of our bikes.
There are no weight limits on any of our bikes frames, but please be aware that may not be the case on all the parts you use to build up your new frameset.
Please be aware that repainting your bike's frame will void your warranty. Refinishing chemicals can attack, weaken, or destroy the important composite chemical bonds of the carbon tubing. Using abrasives, sanding by means of mechanical action, such as plastic or glass-bead blasting, or using other abrasive methods, such as scraping or sanding, can remove the frame material and weaken it. We therefore do not recommend ever repainting a BMC frame. BMC does not offer a refinishing service, nor should the bike owner do this themselves or have it done by any other professional or non-professional. .
Your local BMC retailer can assist you with replacements. BMC retailers have access to BMC-specific spare parts as well as to various other parts vendors, and can work with you in choosing the correct replacement option that best suits both you and your bike. Please find your nearest BMC retailer on our 'Find a BMC retailer' page.
BMC’s frames are made mostly using UD carbon fibre. UD stands for unidirectional. Unlike more traditional carbon fibre products that use a woven carbon finish (criss-crossed finish like a woven piece of material), UD carbon is literally a piece of carbon material with the filaments all running in one direction. BMC’s frames are made from many different pieces of UD carbon that are woven together, similar to what is done in textile production. Some of our frames contain around 350 individual pieces of carbon fibre that go into the mould before heating and curing takes place. These material sheets - some very small, some very large - are laid at different angles across each other to achieve different results: torsional strength, compliance areas, rigidity, and so on. The layup of these sheets is extremely important to the end result. This is actually the art of building a carbon fibre frame.
On our unpainted frames, you can see the result of these carbon fibre sheets overlapping each other through the clear coat covering the frame. We are actually very proud to be able to show this real effect on our frames. It shows not only the true workmanship of the frame, but also the resulting quality as the frame exits our moulds. Many bike manufacturers prefer to paint their frames because there are often many imperfections in the finish that need to be re-worked using a filler before waiting for it to dry, sanding it, and then giving it a final paint job (a bit like a panel shop). This is a cheaper way to finish the frames, ensures you have no reject quantity, and allows you to use less stringent production techniques.
On unpainted BMC frames, when you look 'into' the frame, you see the actual quality of what’s on the inside – we are showing you our finish and quality and we are very proud of that.
We recommend using the FSA adapter we use for the TM01, TM02, and Impec BB30 bottom bracket shells. The model is FSA BB-ALM3.
