I would definitely be going for the BMC if it was truly the 01 model. At this point, electronic shifting is just added weight.
Different years (probably).

The "BMC ROADMACHINE ONE AXS" (the one for rent) appears to be a 2021 model (the rental site has a link to the specifications).

Presumably, the BMC website is showing 2022 models.

The base model name is "Roadmachine 01". Then, there are sub models ("one", "two", "three", "four", "five").

By about 0.4 MPH at 100 RPM.


The 2021 "BMC ROADMACHINE ONE AXS" is (was) a $5300 bike.

Renting a $12,000 bike (the 2022 "BMC 01 One") doesn't make a whole lot of sense (not sure why people's eyebrows didn't raise with that price).
