The frame of the Timemachine TMR02 shares technology features with the Timemachine TM02. 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.
Integration of frame and components dramatically improves aerodynamic performance; like the Timemachine TMR02’s integration of rear brake calipers into the shape of the chain stays and the proprietary seatpost, which is fixed by a hidden clamping mechanism. The Timemachine TMR02 is equipped with external caliper rim brakes.
Especially for powerful riders like rouleurs or sprinters, power transfer is just as important as aerodynamics. Consequently, the BMC engineers were tasked with challenging stiffness targets when designing this aero road bike. The appropriate use of truncated profiles in the frame design and the use of high modulus carbon fiber result in a frame that is remarkably aero, yet stiff enough to lay down some serious watts when it matters most.
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.
Despite looking illegally fast, the Timemachine TMR02 is fully UCI compliant and therefore ready to hit any starting line.
