Hi all!

Anyone here who can show me a BMC TMR01 or 2 in size 48cm how it will look with saddle height around 68cm (center BB - top saddle)?

I'm 168cm tall/short with an inseam of 77cm (if i'm correct ... will check it this evening ... my saddle height currently is 68cm, so that for sure is correct :) )

I want to order the TMR01 but there is no frame around here in size 48 to have a look at it :(

Beauty! :thumbup:

How tall are you, what is your inseam and what is your saddleheight? (center BB - top of saddle)


I have a Rotor Inpower 3D+ MAS set with Q-rings also ... which i will swap to the BMC! It will be a TMR01 2016/2017 so black&white.

How does it handle?, both TMRs and SLRs have a huuuge trail in size 48, anyone noticed any adverse effect or is compensated somehow by other geometry factors like bb drop or short wheelbase?

Yes the head tube angle make them handle like crap at low speeds. At higher speeds its okay.

Got it! :D ordered it end of august and picked it up at 6. september :D

Does anyone knows what handlebar tape BMC is using? It is the kind of suede tape.

Forgot to post a picture of my TMR01 so here it is. Still have it and really love the bike. Handling is fine with all speeds, even without hands (when that is really needed).

Bought myself some new tires :wink: :o . Veloflex Master 23mm. Bit difficult to fit on the rim because it doesn't have the pre-tire-curve as Conti.

That’s sweet looking ride!

What kind of wheelset is that? What the height of the rim?
