BMC Time Machine racing bike Tour de France 2022 price and secrets of the best racing bikes in the world
BMC brings the new BMC TimeMachine disc time trial bike to the Tour De France, which still refines the well-known TimeMachine model with rim brakes.
In the new 2023 model, the frame is completely new, more aerodynamic and rigid, new disc brakes and new hydration system.
The team bike is assembled with the new Campagnolo Super Recors EPS TT Disc group, then with the new disc brake controls, obviously with Campagnolo wheels, lenticular at the rear.
The rest of the components are the standard ones.
Much attention is paid to correctly positioning each athlete in the saddle.
Another aspect is the control of each moving component, constantly revised and fine-tuned to be as smooth as possible, especially wheels, bottom bracket, gearbox, chain.
Equally important is the choice of tires and their pressure.
Then all the attention goes to the choice of clothing and helmet.
During the winter a lot of wind tunnel tests were done to find the best position for the athlete and the perfect aerodynamic efficiency.
The price of the bike is over 15 thousand euro.
