Dimension Data’s BMC Timemachine Road 01 | Ryan Gibbons’ Pro Bike

– This is the BMC Timemachine Road 01 of Dimension Data for 2019 Of course Dimension Data, they have swapped over from Cervelo bikes for the season

Let's have a look at what I think is a really striking design (lofi music) (graphic whooshing) (graphic thudding) And the Timemachine is the aero road race bike for the squad for the season And well you can see just why because check out how aerodynamically designed and profiled these tubes are Including, of course the drop seat stays here at the rear, and well the bottom bracket on this, that's gonna be super stiff I reckon, because just the sheer size of it Now, one of the reasons as well behind this oversized bottom bracket is because of integration

Now, not UCI race legal, but you can in fact put a storage pouch in here, or a storage box or container; whatever you wanna call it And that enables you to actually be able to carry your not quite worldly belongings, but certainly a spare inner tube, and maybe a CO2 canister, too Now sticking with integration, the bottle cages, just check them out Yeah, they do look pretty big, and they're probably the biggest bottle cages I've ever seen in my life, but there's a reason behind it again, and it's because of the aerodynamics, so it's preventing the wind from creating loads and loads of turbulence across the bike when you pass through it Instead, it's smoothed out nicely with these bottle cages, and then just tucked away inside of the bottle cage of the down tube is the Di2 junction box

That's really well done, it's nicely out of harms way Of course, if these bottle cages aren't for your liking or your taste, you could well put some standard ones on there, but well, it's not gonna be as aerodynamic, and when you've got an aero bike, we need to keep it aero Sticking with aerodynamics then, well we've got an integrated aero cover here down on the lower part of the TCC fork The idea behind that is to actually optimize the airflow at all different your angles And then if we look down here on the drive side fork leg, well there's a slight aerodynamic profile here, and that's actually got a replaceable threaded insert in there through the through axle, but also that will help just smooth out a little bit of airflow there, too

Next up, is the integrated cockpit system, or ICS for short Now, traditionally, integrated bars and stems, they were a one piece affair, so totally molded into one, and it made a bit of a headache for many people out there, because finding the exact bar width and stem length for your requirement may not be that simple Instead, this one is a two-piece unit, so it's absolutely great, you can customize it to your hearts content, or well, to the limitations that are available, and the cables are totally internally routed in here You can't see a thing because the lower part of the stem here is just made out of black plastic Well, that houses the hoses as well as Di2 cables

And it looks brilliant I think, in my opinion, and there is also a slight amount of rotation in these bars to about nine degrees, so if you don't wanna have them exactly as a pre-molded pair of bars would come, you can change them a little bit Now the BMC bars, they measure at 39 centimeters at the hoods, and then on the drops, slightly flared out and they go up to 40 centimeters Stem length, 130 millimeters Now our seat post, this comes from BMC, because of course it has to be able to fit inside the BMC frame Made of carbon fiber, and on the front of it you can see a slightly rough effect on it, and that's probably just to actually aid the frame to stay in the correct position

Because remember, sometimes the carbon on carbon can become quite slippery, and if you don't wanna use carbon paste, that could be your savior And on the rear, we've got a couple of gloss strips which could well optimize the air flow there, because it's also got a Kammtail design which is gonna allow the airflow just to be a little bit smoother coming off the back end of it Then fitted into the top of the seat post, we've got a Selle Italia Team Edition saddle Couple of scuffs on there, the owner of the bike, Ryan Gibbons, I reckon he might have dropped it a couple of times when he's been out training So a couple of deviations from a complete standard group set, which I will come onto shortly

First up we've got the ROTOR Twin Power Parameter, that measures left, right measurements, and then the one that stands out a mile The KMC X11SL gold chain I do like a gold chain Now the wheels on this particular bike, they are the ENVE SES 34 Disc, so they're wider than the predecessor, they're now 29 millimeters external width, and the rear is 42 millimeters deep, and the front, 38

Now that width of 29 millimeters is actually optimized to be able to be used with 25 millimeters tires, which is exactly what these Vittoria Corsa Tubular Tyres are, 25 Now this particular pair of wheels are actually brand spanking new, because at the time of filming they're not even on the ENVE website as of yet How do I know they're brand spanking new? Well, they come fitted with the ENVE hubs So previously the wheels would come with other DT Swiss hubs, Chris King hubs, or even White Industry hubs, but ENVE, they actually decided to develop their own hubs We need to check out what that new ENVE free hub sounds like, don't we? Let's have a listen

(hub buzzing) Not bad! Now the other wheels that Dimension Data could well be using during the season are the ENVE 56 Disc So the rear there would be 63 millimeters deep, and the front 54 millimeters deep Now if last year's wheels are anything to go by, the front wheel is generally just a little bit wider than the rear Normally about

75 of a millimeter So the group set on the bike, other than of course the chain set and chain that we've already mentioned is Shimano DURA-ACE, and it's the 9170 model, so that means that the gearing, that's electronically operated, and the rear derailleur utilizes that extended rear derailleur hanger here, as you can see Apparently that's due to actually increase or improve the gear shifting quality, and the braking, well that's hydraulically operated, and the front rotor is 160 millimeters, and the rear, 140 Now this particular bike belongs to Ryan Gibbons, it is actually his training bike, so it's his spare bike here at the race because he's been getting into some miles beforehand And well, the chainrings are the size 54 and 39, and the cassette is an 11-28 ratio which is pretty much standard we see with all pros using Shimano

Gibbons, he's opted for a pair of 1725 millimeters cranks, and then threaded into them is a pair of Shimano DURA-ACE SPD-SL, and it's the 9100 model So Gibbons himself, he stands at one meter 81 Which is just a touch over five-feet-11, and he's opted for a size 54 centimeter frame His saddle height is 76 centimeters, and the distance from the tip of the saddle to the center of the handle bars, that's 58

5 centimeters, and the drop from the saddle to the bars that's 11 centimeters And the weight of it, it comes in at 761 kilos So there we are, the BMC Timemachine Road 01 of Dimension Data for 2019 Let me know what you think of it down there in the comment section below

I've enjoyed taking a look at this one Now, remember as well to like and share this video with your friends Share it with someone who loves disc brakes, share it with someone who loves aero bikes, just share it with one of your cycling buddies Don't forget to check out the GCN shop at shopglobalcyclingnetwork

com, and now for another great video how about clicking on the frame, and me, I'm gonna take this one for a little spin Back in a minute Ryan Oh God he's coming after me I'll bring it back, all right? Just a quick 'round the car park? What? What no, all right mate Sorry, sorry Ryan

Sorry Ryan; Ryan, sorry, sorry
