Concept

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 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 Timemachine TM02 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 TM02 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.

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