Tyler's time machine

Tyler Hamilton's new Team Phonak BMC Time Machine 1 TT bike

By Tim Maloney in Liège

Delivered just a week before the Tour de France to Team Phonak, Tyler Hamilton has a special new rig for Saturday's Tour prologue in Liège. Made in Switzerland by a carbon fibre supplier to F1 team, BMC's wild new Time Machine 1 TT bike has a special integrated fork design in carbon fibre mated to a monocoque frame that eliminates the need for a stem.

Other features are the aero-shaped seatpost mast and multi-shaped carbon fibre tubes.
