I've ordered mine through my LBS. I contacted BMC directly and they said end of February.

" The 0 offset  seat post is available end of February and the article number is 301143."

Thank you for the side pic! Looks fantastic. I wish manufacturers would put a 3D pic of bikes on their sites. The new Teammachines only has the flash of colour on the drive side and you wouldn't know until you see one in the flesh.

After the LBS cleaned, regreased and carbon pasted my seatpost hasn't moved. Yay.

How is everyone else finding the handling of their Teammachine discs? Mine corners unbelievably well but I do find the handling more twitchy than my previous tcr disc and propel.

173..... Unless your legs are abnormally short or you are very inflexible equals size 51

Hmm.. I'm 174cm and was riding a 54cm with a 120mm stem. Unless you're super flexible and ride with LOTS of drop, a 47cm is more than likely too small. BUT, height is a REALLY poor indicator for bike fit... You're about to spend a fair chunk of money... get a bike fit first and know that you're new bike will actually work for you.

Yepp Richie Porte is 172cm and rides a 47cm. So that‘s what a Pro Peloton rider use (flexibel, young and with lots of km per year)

Richie seems to also have very short legs.

Richies 172cm and has a seat height (from bb) of 685mm
I'm 173cm and have my seat height at approx. 724mm (I'm normally proportions, I don't have long legs).

172.7.. seat height same as Porte. I don't think the HT on a 47cm frame would be good for me though with a awful amount of spacers and a 140mm stem.

Hy guys Richie Porte is a Pro Peloton rider. Many here aren‘t even racing or are just average racers.

So it was just to give you an idea „how far“ a Pro Peloton rider goes with the sizing of their bike.

Nobody should feel obliged to try to imitate them.
