I own both, but I just got the Teammachine built up a couple weeks ago. 30mm wide G-ONE schwalbe tires fit

32mm Hutchinson Sector tires will fit on the RoadMachine with no issue.

I took both out to compare & in one short ride I can say the Roadmachine is a great bike, but the Teammachine takes it up a notch. Responsiveness, nimble, acceleration.

True the position is lower & streched out as noted, It’s a race bike.

I would choose by rider position preference.
Do you want to seat more upright? Get a RoadMachine
Are you flexible & like to stay low? Get the TeamMachine

By the way, my 56cm RoadMachine is for sale in the classified section if anyone is interested

You are absolutely right about the tire clearance of 28mm for TM.
I put the 25mm GP 4000s on it which measures 28.5mm on Nox wheels and it has a plenty of clearance.
Then I put a set of 28mm ones (measures 31.8mm) on it, and it literally touches the seat stays and under the fork.
Thanks for saving me the trouble! :shock:
It's all about the adventure :o .
