    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?

People should do what they want with their money though.
    He already had a bike that fit him. He was just looking for some geometry data correlation between his current bike and one he had never seen.

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....

    Did this ever get resolved?

    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.
