With BMC replaces Cervélo as Dimension Data's bike sponsor for 2019, and already showcasing the team's bike with ENVE wheels, when do you guys think BMC will start equipping their bike with ENVE wheels? The last time when Cervélo was the bike sponsor ENVE wheels became stock wheels for Cervélo bikes.

you would have to add approx $1k to the price tag and BMC's are already pretty expensive at the top. I dont see it happening.

The frame sponsor and wheel sponsor are entirely separate things.

Canyon only sells their bikes with Mavics and DT Swiss. Only made a Bora Ultra version to recognize Valverde Movistar bike. They can use any wheel they want. As long as they have someone that will pay for it.

And that Ultimate with Record 12 never went on sale in the US. I thought it looked great.

I'm pretty sure the top of the line RoadMachine comes with Enve 5.6's as standard.

The RM01 One with 4.5 AR is specced with Corsa Control 28c, which is not found on Enve's Approved / Recommended tire list. Is that the upcoming Corsa Control TLR?

28c for the best aerodynamic performance
Schwalbe Pro one

Mavic Yksion Pro UST

These sizes are compatible but drastically reduce the aerodynamic benefit and will be better suited to our G23.

I'd also point out that the Enve wheels spec'd on the Cervelo's have the DT Swiss 350 hub rather than 240. This must have been something Cervelo negotiated to improve their margin.

Good pick up. I only assumed they were 5.6's when i brushed past the RM 01 on their website.

Some BMC bikes, such as the Roadmachine Rm01 ONE, come stock with ENVE wheels (4.5 AR clinchers in this case, see https://www.bmc-switzerland.com/int-en/ ... ne-01-one/). That was the case before the sponsorship deals involving Team Dimension Data, BMC and ENVE.

By the looks of them on the Timemachine road the ENVE's used are much less depth than the stock 62mm deep DT swiss.

Who would buy a matt (off) white bike? Would be constantly cleaning it.
