The BMC TMR is getting a bit long in the tooth and the range has been pared down to just a few models. Anyone heard any whisperings of a refreshed version?

No but I agree its time. Still a great looking bike though.

Pastronef said there's a BMC rider using a new aero frame but I couldn't find any picture.....

Yes that’s time to get rid of the limitation of the 3:1 UCI rule for a brand new TimeMachine!

The UCI rule changes only have a small effect on the frame design though - 75mm x 25mm or 80mm x 26.6mm maintubes for the old rules, 80mm x 25mm for the new - it's just the fork that could change a lot.

Yepp but it gives the bike manufacturer (especially the marketing) a good reason to develop and sell us a new aero optimized bike....
