Tech of the week: bike launches from BMC and others, a 600g frameset and aero bikes head-to-head

With the Giro d’Italia over, the focus this week has been on bike launches, aero bikes and frame weights

New bikes from BMC, Kinesis and Cannondale

This time of year is when brands start to roll out their new bikes for 2018. So we’ve reported on a few bike launches, starting with BMC’s new Teammachine. The Teammachine SLR will come in both rim and disc braked models and was developed using BMC’s supercomputer design method, which took the frame through 34,000 design iterations. BMC says that its disc brake frame is less than 50g heavier than the rim brake version.
