Giacomo Nizzolo’s BMC Timemachine Road 01 Disc | Team Dimension Data Pro Bike


(electronic music) – This is Italian rider, Giacomo Nizzolo’s of Dimension Data, the
BMC Timemachine Road 01. (electronic music) Now I think it’s best we
start on the frame of the 30 year old Italian sprinter. Nizzolo is riding the BMC
ROAD Timemachine 01 Disc. This is the fastest and
most aerodynamic frame that BMC produces and it is
the frame choice of Nizzolo. Straight away you see how
the tubes of this bike are aerodynamically
optimised and finished off in that matte grey with the
splash of red on the top tube. You can see that this bike
has dropped seat stays which is mostly designed
to help the aerodynamics but also to help comfort. This frame also features
an oversized bottom bracket to enhance the stiffness
and it does help with the integration of the cables. Moving on from integrated cables, check out these bottle cages. They do look fairly big and bulky, but these are specifically designed to help smooth the air flow around the frame so that thee bike is
aerodynamically optimised with bottles in and out. The junction box of the Di2 system is cleverly hidden away on the
downtube in the bottle cage. This bike is totally
designed around aerodynamics and we can see that when
we move forward to the integrated bar and stem cockpit from BMC. The great thing about this
specific setup is that you can actually chose the
stem length and bar width to fit you perfectly as
it is a two piece setup unlike other integrated systems out there. The bar tape wrapping
around the carbon bars is from Joystick but if we look
at this bike from the front, it is totally clean of cables. Everything is internally
routed and, I have to say, it looks incredibly fast. You can see he’s got
his 2019 Giro d’Italia race number attached to
that BMC bladed seat post with the Kamm tail
design finishing it off. Above the seat post is the data box. That is used to read data and transfer it back to media partners to be able to publish
live data as he’s racing. But bolted onto the seat
post, the saddle of choice that Nizzolo has gone for is the Selle Italia SLR
SuperFlow with the cut-out to maximise comfort. And this saddle, for sure,
looks like it has seen some serious mileage with
those faded decals on the top. Looking at the groupset now,
this bike is equipped with Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di2 9170 but the Dimension Team haven’t
gone for the Dura-Ace cranks, they’ve gone for these cranks from Rotor which are equipped with
a twin power power metre and bolted on to the
end of the crank arms, the pedals of choice are
Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 SPD SLs. And, wrapped around a 55 chain ring, Nizzolo has added some bling
with a CMC X11 SL gold chain. The small ring that Nizzolo
has gone for is a 42 and when we look back
to the rear cassette, he’s gone for an 11/30. Onto the wheels now, and these are the Thru-Axel SES 7.8 tubular
wheel set from ENVE. The depth of the front
is around 71 millimetres and the depth of the
rear is 78 millimetres. The claimed weight of both
wheels is around 1793 grammes. So, aerodynamic and fairly light. Mounted onto the rims are the Vittoria Corsa 25 millimetre tyres. The brakes are fully
hydraulic and the rotors used is a 140 on the back and 160 on the front add to the braking
performance and the weight. But, all in all, this bike
is fast and aerodynamic, perfect for the sprinter Nizzolo is. So if you’ve enjoyed having
a good look at this bike, then make sure you give
this v a big thumb-up and for more Giro content, why don’t you click on Giacomo’s bike.
