Track Machine? or Pack Machine?

A track bike with flat bars definitely isn’t a rare sight, but one executed this well is. Daniel built this machine up with little intention of taking it on the track, but single track? Probably. Bike packing? Maybe.

BMCs’ Al-13 Premium Triple-butted, Hydroformed Aluminum makes for an unforgettably responsive ride through Victorias mean streets, and leaves absolutely no bump on the road unfelt.

The Track Machine was designed with the Swiss National Track Team in mind, so it can go fast and turn left, and right too. Thats right, very versatile. Its oversized tubing didn’t make it easy for frame bags to go on, but with a little finesse, they can, thus opening all sorts of doors. Bike packing,  putting tall cans in on the ride to the beach, transporting snacks, or produce. its pretty much the bike to do anything on.

It wouldn’t be a performance bike without carbon handlebars. It was an obvious choice to spec ENVE Riser bars for maximum torque when taking off from a red light.

What we learned is that BMC made a bike for riding in circles, very very quickly. But it can do a whole lot more.
