One of the hallmarks of innovation is the anticipation of what someone needs before they even consider it to be a desire. For years, there has been a gap between upright endurance road bikes and race road bikes, at least until BMC released the BMC Roadmachine. Called the “one bike collection, the 2021 BMC Roadmachine THREE road bike is fast enough for a Saturday criterium and comfortable enough for a Sunday adventure ride.
Hallmarks of the BMC Roadmachine include a seat tube cutout and D-shaped carbon seatpost, semi-aero tubing, and an available integrated Garmin/GoPro/accessory mount that attaches to the stem. There is also an interchangeable plate on the downtube that allows for electronic and mechanical drivetrain swaps, BMC’s handy integrated cylindrical chain catcher, and a choice of high and low stack headset top caps to adjust stack and reach measurements. smart design done right the first time doesn’t need to change.
Above else, the Roadmachine is about refinement. Perhaps the biggest change from the previous model is an update to fit up to a 33c tire in the name of expanding the Roadmachine’s overall capability. There is a new asymmetric fork to increase strength on the disc brake side to put it in line with the rest of the BMC road bike line. You’ll also find tapered chainstays, seat stays that mounted low on the seat tube to improve compliance around the seatpost and saddle, and a bento box mount on the top tube.
What makes the Roadmachine so appealing, not only to us but to the myriad of road riders who happily ride Roadmachines from our shop, is its broad appeal. It’s truly a modern road bike, one that serves riders who ride tons appreciate zippiness and neutral handling but don’t want the hard edges of a race road bike. The new bike is just as good as, if not better than, the previous Roadmachine, but it expands tire clearance and possibilities for what a Sunday morning ride can consist of.
The 2021 BMC Roadmachine THREE is based around their premium carbon frame and a Shimano Ultegra drivetrain. The Roadmachine THREE adds in Shimano RS-370 wheels, their D-shaped carbon seatpost, and a Vittoria Rubino 28mm tires. Roadmachine ONE is available in six sizes (47 – 61 cm).
