    I am in the process of upgrading my mechanical RM02 to Di2. Does nayone have pictures of where the junction B is placed and the wire placement around the BB?

    Thanks.

People should do what they want with their money though.

As far as I cans see, the cover seems similar on the SLR-01 and the RM-01.
    I just tried placing the junction box into an '17 RM02 frameset. It will not work (at least without modification. I suspect that the junction cover for the SLR-01 is different (slightly) from the roadmachine cover.

    Hi,

    I dunno if that with help ya, seeing I have a 01 frame, but mine(junction box) is put under the steam like you can see in the picture below. And the wires pass through the frame. But if you take a look at the 02 One seems the wires pass through the frame too. I asked the seller why the Junction Box can't be mounted directly in the oblique tube, and he told me just BMC have the Junction Box which can be mounted there and it's not for sale. Anyway, I wrote to BMC to see what they will say about it.

    My answer is the same. Get fit. Each bike is different. Why guess and eyeball it? What's the upside?

    Gosh! You really do not understand anything? I will FIT. I didn't come here to ask for get fit on this bike. Just what size FIT ME! And with more than 10 years of experience, you guys MUST KNOW TO ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION. Even if each bike is different. Once you have the sizes of an old bike, you MUST BE ABLE to comparate with another bike sizes and geometry and answer to my question. It's simple like that, stop with this bull**** saying you must fit. I knew that before to come here and ask what I asked. If you can't answer me, better don't replay instead to keep saying go get a fit.

    First, take a deep breath and take it down 3000%. If you knew all of that (that you fit and which size, etc.), then you really didn't need to post the question anyway. If you are posting the question, you don't know do you. Taking the size off of one bike and speculating on a different brand from that fit is guessing. It's an educated guess, but a guess nonetheless. My feeling is fit is probably something you want to get right, but I might be wrong about that so do as you please. I'm not changing my advice though....

    Nice colour!!

    Which size is it?

    Do you use only low profile wheels?

    That's a good looking ride! I love the Marin Headlands, and bombing down Hawk Hill. One of my all time favorites days when I was there a couple of years ago.

    What do you think of the bike?

    Thanks! It is a fantastic bike, great blend of performance, comfort and it looks damn sexy too. So stable compared to my old SuperSix and the discs are so powerful with amazing modulation that it gives me great confidence bombing down hawk hill

    54. Will probably add a set of Enve or Zipps later but honestly was stretching the budget a bit already. I demo'd a RM01 a while back and it took me 4 months to find a great deal on one, had it built up with Red eTAP as I loved the interface over the original Ultegra Di2 build I was considering.

    Hi guys, I wonder whether this teammachine direct mount RD hanger is compatible with the roadmachine RM01 frame. Any ideas?BMC Roadmachine!-dsc00174.jpg BMC Roadmachine!-bmc_roadlaunch_%A9bmc_jeremiereuiller-107.jpg

    I'm pretty sure the team machine is the only bike that takes direct mount derailleur.

    That sucks.. but thanks for info anyway. It would be nice if we have this capability on the RM frame too.

    I have a 2017 BMC Roadmachine 02 with 1.5K miles on it and I just noticed a half-inch length hairline crack right behind the seat tube. At this point I'm not sure if it's just a paint crack or the early days of a cracked frame. This doesn't seem to be a very rare problem if the following post on Slowtwitch is to be believed. Please let us know how your warranty situation is resolved.

    My RM02 frame develops cracks. The bike has approx 10000Km (6200 Miles).
    Anybody have similar issues?

    I'm going to take a bold stance and weight in on both pictures/posts.

    I used to own a LOOK 566 which was an incredibly flexy frame. That coupled with what appeared to be a very generous or rich coat of paint led to exactly the type of paint cracks at certain joints in the frame exhibited by the yellow frame. I'm fat, I trashed it for miles to come and eventually sold it (fully disclosed). The second buyer enjoyed it for year + to come.

    Done yapping. All best.

    After I sold the LOOK I purchased an SLR01 and was initially taken aback by the number of frame "imperfections" visible through the naked coat of clear paint. There were folds, bends, folded ears, creases, etcs showing. I have wailed on that bike for years now and it's fine. Although the point of failure would probably be the rear chainstay where I have gouged out a chainsuck gash that is multiple layers of carbon deep. Forget the fingernail test , this gouge is a 1/2 millimeter deep.

    Personally, I don't see the crack in the RM seat post. If you are doubting the vertical fold then you should also be equally concerned out about the horizontal imperfection as well, yes? If not, then perhaps neither is valid?

    I bought an RM-01 Frameset last November. Same color (Team Black/Red).

    It had those marks on the back of the seatpost the day I took it out of the box. To me, they appear to be some kind of mold seam artifact. They are perfectly symmetrical.

    I'm 6' 5" and 220lbs. I've ridden it more than 6000 miles (about half on gravel) since then, and it has been fine.

    I initially had some trouble with the seatpost slipping, but that problem seems to have resolved itself as it's not slipped since the first few rides.

    I was actually referring to the short vertical crack behind the seat tube in my post, not the seam behind the seatpost. Perhaps you meant the same thing, but unlike carbon layer seams this is not smooth to the touch.

    Ahh, yea, i was looking at those seams on the back of the seat tube (I think that is what the posts on slowtwitch were talking about as well).

    If that seatpost seam is separating, I can't imaging BMC not honoring a warranty on that. Have you inquired at your shop?

    I went to see my LBS today and they immediately recognized the problem just by looking at the photos, the ones I've posted above and some other closeups. Of course they still need to see the bike in person and do their own inspection, but it looks like they'll submit a claim on my behalf. And I have no doubt BMC will take good care of me.

    The crack (vertical) is on the seat tube where it meets with the seatpost, not on the seatpost itself. What you see on the seatpost is just the different carbon pieces fused there. A very thin layer of paint is making these purely cosmetic imperfections visible, which is totally fine. Paint weighs a lot. And what appears to be a horizontal crack is actually an imprint of the rubber seat clamp cover (not seen in these photos). Again, this is purely cosmetic. The crack itself however is not smooth to the touch unlike the cosmetic imperfections.

    hi all,

    I have a Roadmachine 01 ONE (the Grey one) that I got in Sept 2017. This had the Junction box under the stem but my LBS relocated it under the Crank to make it tidy. Looks much better as its not really seen.

    On the 2018 Team Machines the Junction box is located in the frame as Shimano released the handle bar end type box. Looks much nicer.

    Anyone know if this Junction box can be used on the older Road Machines? I have heard it wont fit in the frame and the true 2018 RM was changed slightly to make it fit.
