The Story

Mountain biking has been a part of Mark’s life for what seems like forever. He won’t stop now.

Looking back to the ‘good old days’, the golden era of mountain biking, is how Mark likes to remember earlier decades on hardtails and 26 inch wheels. Those old school bikes not only took him to far-flung places as a youth, but also taught him a killer riding skill set that he uses to blow off steam today. “Riding has always been my release, but now the focus has shifted. Ok, I love the old days and sometimes think that excessive technology has flooded the sport, but I have to admit that my Speedfox is an exception to this assertion,” Mark admits.

From all-day, all-mountain escapes to stolen hours on his local trails, Mark’s routine of riding daily still remains. “Sometimes I catch myself wondering what it would have been like to have this bike when I was younger. Then I check myself, before swiftly dropping into the next smile-inducing descent.”

In the press

What are they saying?

It’s light, agile and very easy to ride.

The Trailsync system allows for fairly efficient pedaling when the seat is up, without compromising the suspension too much when the seat is lowered and the shock is open.


In a word… seamlessly.

Unlike other intelligent/automatic shock systems, Trailsync doesn’t complicate matters or have you looking for a way to override the system.


I was able to put the lockout out of my mind, which is exactly the reason Trailsync was invented.

Eventually, I stopped thinking about it and just rode. That’s rare for me to do with a remote lockout. I was able to put it out of my mind, which is exactly the reason Trailsync was invented.


The Speedfox is easy and fun to ride thanks to the synchronisation of the dropper seat post and rear suspension–a feature that frees the rider's mind and lets them stay focused on the ride.


The BMC Speedfox 01 is a reliable and incredibly well thought out model

A performance-focused all-rounder with top-notch features, a considered frame design and balanced handling. Perfect for long rides with technical descents.


The BMC Speedfox will win you over with its incredible handling and innovative seat post. The Trailsync technology performs brilliantly.


Making a top-performing mountain bike simpler and more intuitive to ride is what BMC’s new Speedfox is all about
