BMC Speedfox Trailcrew 02
Playful and fun are the first words to come to mind when you ride the BMC Speedfox Trailcrew 02. If you’re the type of rider who doesn’t mind pedaling for a rowdy downhill, you need to throw a leg over the BMC Trailcrew. An alternative to BMC’s excellent 29er trail bikes, the Trailcrew 02 has 27.5-inch wheels, 150mm of front and rear travel, and a light, stiff carbon frame. Designed to be a versatile, all-mountain bike, the Trailcrew is a solid climber and an incorrigible descender that splits the difference between the BMC’s more staid Speedfox 29er and the Trailfox 29er enduro race bike. Slack geometry and short chain stays make the Trailcrew a quick but stable handler and the plush, super-tunable Cane Creek Inline rear shock encourages you to hit “send” on the descents.
The BMC Trailcrew 02 is spec’d to deliver maximum grins. It’s light enough to pedal comfortably but not so light you’ll worry about breaking it. The 1x11 Shimano XT drivetrain is workingman’s gold – reasonably light, absolutely reliable and exactly what you need to get the job done. The 780mm aluminum bars and Shimano XT disc brakes with a big 203mm front rotor let you know BMC built the Trailcrew to be flogged hard. Please don’t let them down.
BMC Speedfox Trailcrew 02 Carbon Fiber Frame
A thoughtful balance of efficiency, weight and value, the Trailcrew 02 frame pairs a BMC 02 carbon front triangle with a bomb-proof, triple-butted aluminum rear triangle. It holds whatever line you choose so you have the confidence to point it and rally over anything the trail throws your way.
As you’d expect from Swiss designers, attention to detail on the Trailcrew 02 frame is first-rate. Behind the clean, utilitarian lines you’ll find a smart internal cable management system, integrated frame protection and plenty of standover for getting rad. There’s even room for a water bottle on big-mountain adventure days.
BMC Speedfox Trailcrew 02 APS Suspension
The BMC’s Trailcrew 02’s is designed to climb well, descend smoothly and deliver as much traction as possible. The BMC APS (Advanced Pivot System) suspension system is a finely-tuned dual-link design that uses chain tension to stiffen up the suspension for optimal pedaling efficiency. BMC has been using and refining their APS suspension for quite a while now. The system is optimized to “soak up the bumps not pedaling power.” Cane Creek’s amazing DB Inline air shock rounds out the Trailcrew suspension ensuring the bike can be fine-tuned to any terrain and riding style.

BMC Speedfox Trailcrew 02 – The Bottom Line
Designed as a playful alternative to BMC’s “Big Wheel Concept” 29er mountain bikes, the Trailcrew’s 27.5 wheels and 150mm of travel make it snappy, fun and confident on nearly any kind of trail. Riders who want a bike that can bomb laps in the bike park and then pedal back up for more will find the Trailcrew makes a perfect all-mountain companion.
BMC Speedfox 02 Trailcrew – Where it Fits
A little bigger than most of our 27.5 trail bikes, yet smaller than a full-on enduro bike, the 150mm BMC Trailcrew falls between the 140mm rear-travel Devinci Troy and Felt Decree; and the bigger, slacker 155mm-travel Knolly Warden Carbon.
