BMC – The Bicycle Manufacturing Company
It’s all in the name. At BMC we concentrate on what we do best - making bikes, pure and simple. We focus our energy towards creating the ultimate ride - whether for road, track, or trail, professional athlete, or weekend warrior.
Some companies call it the development process. At BMC we call it 'excitement research.' Using cutting edge in-house technology at the Impec Advanced R&D Lab in Grenchen, we simulate prototypes and apply the highest level of engineering, craftsmanship and design to create them.
A man with a vision. To establish a competitive frame production facility in Switzerland. An integrated industrial manufacturing process to satisfy the most exacting quality requirements. A highly efficient carbon frame which is not laminated, but instead made from loadspecific woven tubes. A revolutionary half-shell system that connects these tubes with ultimate strength. A world champion who tests the bike and instantly declares it suitable for racing. A utopia?
Bikes for smooth roads, or the cobblestones of the classics; for those of you who prefer to be on the drops, shave your legs and go fast, no matter what.
The fastest bike on earth
The story of the timemachine TM01 is one of success: Cadel Evans rode into yellow on the final day of racing and won the Tour de France thanks to maximum aerodynamics and a perfect position on his TM01. Shortly thereafter, Andreas Raelert used the same advantages to establish a new worldrecord over the Ironman distance.The BMC timemachine TM01 delivered arguably the two most important results in against-the-clock racing. That speaks volumes.
