BMC goes big with new Roadmachine
BMC launched the new Roadmachine range of disc brake endurance road bikes Friday, which boast enough clearance for 30-32mm tires. The range includes three models with a variety of specifications: the Roadmachine 01 in BMC’s premium carbon, the Roadmachine 02 in the company’s more economical laminates, and the Roadmachine 03 in smooth-weld aluminum with a full carbon fork.
All models feature flat-mount disc brakes and 12mm thru axles front and rear. The Roadmachine 01 features an integrated cockpit system, which eliminates external Di2 cables and the hydraulic hose from the handlebar to rear axle. The 01 and 02 Roadmachine models also feature a top cap spacer to provide riders with a choice between a more race-oriented stack (similar to BMC Teammachine SLR) or a taller position (similar to the Grandfondo GF models). The Roadmachine 03 features additional frame clearance to accommodate up to 32mm tires, as well as integrated hidden fender and rack mounts.
Roadmachines are available immediately from BMC dealers in nine different specifications, including the Roadmachine 01 Dura Ace Di2 for $10,999, the Roadmachine 02 Ultegra at $3,999, and the Roadmachine 03 Tiagra for $1,999.
