Strengths: Light maneuvarable front end, very stiff bottom bracket and rear triangle. Also the finish is also very beautiful.
Weaknesses: As with all aero framesets, hoping the seat post bolt holds strong and doesn't squeak.
Having raced on a Cannondale bike this whole year...I tested a ton of bikes before riding the Time Machine Track bike. I had tried the Griffen (felt sort of dead), Orbea (I was in between sizes), looked at the Cervelo (expensive), and some customer frames. I took the bike up and down the track, and my first thought was the front end felt nice and light. I then did some jumps, and the back end felt very predictable and stiff. The finish is also beautiful.
BMC have made a track version of the Time Machine TM01 for Swiss track cyclists.
Wonder if they will make it available to the public... :D
