BMC recalled the 2017 and 2018 models of their Time Machine 01 triathlon and time trial bicycles. Reportedly, when using certain widths of tires on these models, the distance between the front tire and the down tube does not meet required safety standards, which could potentially result in contact between the tire and the frame. This results in an increased risk of the bicyclist crashing and falling.
The affected models include the following:
- Timemachine 01 SRAM Red eTap
- Timemachine 01 Ultegra Di2
- Timemachine 01 ONE
- Timemachine 01 TWO
- Timemachine 01 THREE
- Timemachine 01 Frameset or TM01 FRS
