According to BMC, “Trail riders are mountain biking’s most demanding crowd”. Trail riders want a bike that is a capable climber but shreds the descends with aplomb. They want a bike that confidently handles tight hairpins, but won’t fail prematurely from all of the diverse terrain they might see. At our shop alone we carry a vast number of trail or trail-worthy bicycles from several different brands, which is just a small taste of how each major brand approaches their trail bike design. BMC have thrown their hat in the ring once again with the 2019 Speedfox 03 TWO, which is BMC’s signature take on the trail bike.
BMC start with a revised and slightly slackened 68-degree headtube and couple it with longer reach across all models (same as the Speedfox 01 & 02), a trend that has seen to be hugely beneficial for stability and cornering ability. They’ve also carried over their revised Advanced Pivot System (APS) from the carbon Speedfox bikes, which, coupled with the rear shock, is tuned now for greater small-bump compliance in trail mode. The Speedfox 03 receives revised internal cable routing, perfect for a dropper post. It also receives drive-side chainstay and downtube rubber covers to protect the frame from abrasion, a chain catcher to prevent chain suck between the bottom bracket and crankset, and a mud guard over the rear suspension pivots to increase bicycle longevity and cleanliness.
The 2019 BMC Speedfox 03 TWO comes smartly spec’d with a SRAM NX 1 x 11 drivetrain, a RockShox Judy Silver TK fork, a X-Fusion 02 RL shock, and an Alex MD30/Shimano Deore wheelset. It is available in four sizes (S-XL); size small receives 27.5″ wheels, while medium thru extra-large get 29″ wheels.
