FIRST LOOK: GREG VAN AVERMAET’S BMC TEAMMACHINE
The Olympic champ gets a new bike to roll on
BMC just dropped us a quick note to show-off Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet’s latest ride – his second generation of the vaunted Teammachine SLR01, only now with a celebratory golden cockpit and top tube as a tribute to his Olympic title.
The parts spec includes: Campagnolo EPS Super Record drivetrain with Campagnolo Bora WTO wheels mounted with Pirelli tires, Look pedals and a Fizik saddle.
Read our review of the budget-friendly BMC Teammachine SLR 02
60mm-deep Campagnolo Bora WTO carbon wheels give the Teammachine an aerodynamic edge.
BMC’s Teammachine SLR01 frame has clearance for up to 30mm tires.
The one-piece carbon cockpit enhances the clean aesthetic of the golden highlights.
The internally-routed design of the one-piece bar/stem efficiently hides shift cable and hydraulic lines.
The classy double-curve design of the Super Record shifters oozes style points.
