As an athlete, I have been in the fortunate position of having had plenty of bikes being made exactly ‘right’ for me, in terms of geometry, technology, feel and fit. But the gain of a fraction of a second certainly isn’t […]

BMC Switzerland might not be the biggest bike firm in the world but it has something other cycle companies can only dream of: a cutting-edge research and development facility, run by some of the foremost experts in their field. We caught up with BMC’s Thomas McDaniel to find out what goes on behind the walls […]
