New BMC Timemachine 01 Disc TT/tri bike launched

BMC adds disc brakes to its time trial/tri bike

Following hot on the heels of the Timemachine Road aero road bike, launched last week, BMC has announced a new disc brake Timemachine 01 Disc TT/triathlon bike. It says that it’s ideal for middle distance and long distance time trials and triathlons. And like the road bike, it has disc brakes.

BMC last revamped its Timemachine time trial bike a couple of years ago, but that bike was rim braked. A key feature of the new bike is the integrated cover over the brake front brake caliper to improve airflow over the fork and reduce aerodynamic drag. There's a similar cover over the rear brake caliper, while thru-axles ensure accurate handling and rotor placement when changing wheels.
