What is the difference between 2020 and the 2019? I was watching videos and they said its the same bike, but you said 'new generation'. I m looking at this one or the teammachine, but both seem to be in their current generations still for 2020.

I have the 2018 version, which is considered the "old" generation. If there's as much improvement as they say this new bike must be something very special. I say that because the "old" one is one hell of a great bike.

Congrats to OP, nice bike.

Looks like it goes

What's the actual measured tire width with 28's on those Enves? At 17 lbs, I know it's more about aero than weight. Given that, how's it ride compared to a ti or steel bike with narrower rims/tires? That is, how much does frame material make a difference given the different setups?

The actual tire width of 28s on the Enve AR rims is a flat 30mm. The ride mutes a lot of road buzz. It's a super fast bike but doesn't feel like it right away because of how comfortable it is. I've wrung it out on many group rides and it hasn't let me down when I compare it to my TeamMachine SLR01.

That said, it's a road machine not a crit machine. You could throw it around a crit course if you had to but it's not going to respond like a straight up racing bike would.

BMC makes a great bike. I have a 2012ish one that is still my road bike. Best riding bike I have ever owned second to maybe a moots which I should have never sold.

That's a bad a** setup. I had a GF01 I let go a couple of years ago but the slight new look has me jonesing for another one.

I love the look of their new frames, so clean! Apparently the only difference between the RM01 and 02 is the fork, so theoretically you can get an RM01 fork for your 02 and upgrade!
