The key to the TMR01's magic is tripwires. This is an essential element to BMC's subA concept. These molded grooves on the leading edge of frame tubes helps trick the wind rushing by into thinking that the tube is much longer than it really is. By doing this, BMC is able to better tune the tubing for ride quality. As the stiffest bike in the BMC lineup, it is great for big riders. But it still doesn't sacrifice ride quality or a geometry that can tackle all terrain with aplomb. Knowing that an proprietary post is essential to keeping the bike aero, BMC build a post that has three seat clamp setback positions, part of their P2P concept, so that whether short-femured or long, flexible or stiff, every rider could find their happy place on this bike.
BMC has wisely included Zipp's 60 wheelset with this bike. A few years ago, this was their 404 clincher, but thanks to the march of technology, it is their carbon/aluminum hybrid clincher wheelset with amazing aerodynamics and an aluminum braking surface. The wheels are shod in Continental's super-fast clincher tire, the GP-4000s, in the 25mm width.
The cockpit is 3T, just like the pro team rides, with a ARX2 Team stem and the Ergonova Team bars. The saddle is the Fizik Arione R7, which has the long shape many riders gravitate to, and it sports Manganese rails, a great increase in durability with a slight increase in weight.
BTW, the naked carbon with grey accents is wisely called Stealth. It's an appropriate description of the bike, which hides very well in plain sight.
The BMC Timemachine TMR01 with Shimano Ultegra Di2 is a hidden gem.
