BMC Timemachine

I'm one who appreciates the classic look of stright, cylindrical tubing for bicycle frames. Form follows function. Some of these new carbon frames look absolutely horrible, and I wonder how much of that carbon has a purpose or is it just for looks. But every once in a while, there comes a bike that just makes me weak at the knees. The BMC Timemachine ridden by the Phonak team is a beautiful bike. It gave the win to Floyd Landis in the Tour de Georgia Stage 3 ITT Thursday. The frame has 3 patent pending innovations: the integrated fork, stem, and headset, an airfoil below the bottom bracket, and the cutout in the downtube where the front wheel sits. Plus, you've got to respect a frame that costs $12G ($20G full bike). The consumer version of the bike will also be 300 grams lighter utilizing a different weave of carbon.
