"not too bad" :D
I think its very bad, if chain falls off.
No shit it not good but the q-rings helped with my knee pain, small price to pay to keep riding.

On the eve of BMC's new bike launches later this month which includes a new Roadmachine,
I took some new photos of my Roadmachine 02 with its new wheels and tires.
After 4,000km on this bike, I'm still quite happy with the RM. It's much heavier than my previous road bike, a 2015 Teammachine, but the versatility that comes from disc brakes and the big tire clearance makes it feel like a true all-rounder bike. Looking forward to put even bigger tires on it when I need a new set.

Great build! Could you let me know if that is the ICS stem from the 01 model that fits directly on the 02 (round) steerer tube?

Thanks!

This is the ICS stem from 01, yes. It fits the round steerer tube of the 02, but you need the correct top cone for ICS in low or high version plus any spacers you may need. I use the low version and one spacer, which gives me a drop of about 10 cm from seat to bar. Both stem and cone are rather expensive, but I got the former second hand and the latter as surplus from my LBS.

Some 2019 RM02 came with the ICS stem originally, which is what gave me the idea. No integration, but I like the sleek look and the 12 degrees angle. I'm sure a similar set-up would look excellent on your nice build and match the high profile rims :thumbup:

But since we're on Weight Weenies: The ICS stem adds coolness, but also well over 100 grams as compared to a standard BMC stem, not to mention low weight alternatives :shock:

All of the above refers to Roadmachine 2017-19 and not the new 2020 :)

By the way, I'm quite please with Campagnolo, even though I chose the moderately priced Potenza. Wasn't able to find the caliper for 160 mm rotor in the back, so sadly had to use the less elegant adapter. Still, Roadmachine Potenza just sounds so nice.

Here's my 2017 BMC Roadmachine RM01 in the Sunrise finish, with Ultegra di2.

I swapped out the wheels for Reynolds AR 58/62 DB, which I run tubeless with 28s. I've had tubeless Panaracer Gravel King 32s on there and they just cleared the stays.

Also swapped out the standard crankset for a Rotor 3D24 with a Power2Max NGEco powermeter and FSA Super rings (48/32).

Had the bright idea to test the gravel capabilities of it this weekend on Tiger Mountain which is a gravel trail that goes up ~1000m and connects a lot of downhill MTB sections with pretty sketchy loose/chunky sections on its own (not pictured). I put latex tubes in to help prevent pinch flats (with great success) and put in a 32mm tire in the back (28mm in the front). It performed about as much as I expected.. uphill was doable and I was flying past all the MTB and proper gravel bike guys but downhill was a nightmare, was definitely beyond its limits at times especially with steep slushy corners.

Caught some cheeky "road bike, what are you doing here?" comments along the way :lol:
