Anyone seen this bike in person/have one?
I'm pumped that they are finally venturing into the AM category.
I've got the previous version TF01 (2009), the current version seems a relatively slight update (with two nice features though):
- 12 mm through axel in the rear
- Tapered head tube
- Possibly shallower HA, but the web-site seems to have a contradiction. The TF01 is listed as having a 66.5deg HA and the TF02 an 68 deg HA (like my 2009 model), which does not match with the statement that the TF02 uses the same reworked platform as the TF01 (and both use a 150mm TALAS).
The rest seems mostly unchanged from the previous 2009 and 2010 models. Bottom line, this bike rocks both up and down! I love my 2009er (which has a 140mm TALAS by the way). I've changed from an 100mm stem to an 80mm one (size L) which is in line with the current line of thought @ BMC and that really makes a nice change for the better. As the icing on the cake, it looks stunning and well thought out (this is not a standard frame by any measure).
