I pre ordered mine from my LBS, they are a BMC dealer. They are not supposed to be taking preorders until the 14th of this month but they took my preorder anyway. I was hassling them for quite some time as to the release of the new models so that may have had something to do with it too. They will be released in September, but you may be able to see the color lineup on or after the 14th of this month.

The AC01 Two for 2021 is not belt drive like it was previously, they did away with the 11sp and only have the 8sp as their top model. That one is the 01 One, which is the model i ordered. Itís $2099

That was my 2016 that I just sold, really liked that bike but wanted the belt drive originally and settled for this. My belt drive is coming in September!!

Thank you for the reply. I reached out to bike shop near me that carries BMC and they informed me the same.

Any word on yours yet? I ordered the 2021 01 One as well and heard my LBS has started to get in a couple of the other 2021 AC models this week, earlier than expected.

I called my LBS yesterday for an update but they have not received any as of yet. They said possibly early September. Hopefully!! They do have the 2021 AMP models though so thatís a good sign!
