    Very nice paint. Not sure about the stem, but then I'm not a TT bike fan anyway!

    I love the look of the new Time Machines and I'm thinking of picking one up. However, there are no local BMC dealers in my area so I'd need buy blind.

    I was looking at the geometry charts for the TM01/TM02 and they seem a bit odd?

    TM01/TM02 Geometry comparison:

    (link to the pic. sorry, can't post pics with my postcount)

    Looking at the TM02's geometry: The M-S has a longer top tube than the M-L, but shorter reach with all else being equal (I don't see how that's possible?). Comparing to the TM01's geometry chart, I assume the top tube length is a typo?

    Seeing that "typo", makes me question the size S frame geometry. Assuming the TM01's geometry chart is the correct one, the S frame has a top tube that is 7mm longer and a reach that is 16mm longer than the M-S. I do notice that the BB drop is less on the S, so that could be the cause. Is that correct/does that sound correct?

    Just got one! Easy to fit and so far, it has been way beyond expectations.
