Hello. I’m planning to swap my old BMC frame to the 2018 frame. Any issues fitting the DA 9000 groupset to the 2018 frame? Any problem on the RD? Can I still use the old DA 9000 brake caliper?

Only problem I had was adjusting the calipers so that the break shoes wouldn't rub against the fork/frame to allow for more clearance for wider rims (25mm across). Took a lot of tweaking to get it right but it worked out in the end. Maybe I was just being a noob having no experience with DM brakes before :P

That slr01 has perfect combination of color. I really like it.
I think new slr01 is one of the most advanced bike, also it has unique and beautiful design.
How about Osymetric chainrings? dont you have any shifting problems?

No shifting issues, I think they solved that problem pretty early on when they added guiding rails to them (they didn't have them in the first iteration). The huge drop in height throughout the pedal stroke makes it so that the chain can sometimes rub the bottom of the front derailleur cage when you're in the little ring if you aren't careful with where you're at on the cassette though. They're also 50 or so grams heavier than normal DA rings. Another thing is that it's pretty weird to use them after being on round rings for a while, feels like you're pedaling in squares at first.

tbh haven't been on them much at all. I used my chinese clinchers on them the few times I took it to on the commute (wider & with tire liner) so can't comment on the FLOs. Been in the pits of pacific northwest fall/winter rain & cold season so the BMC has hardly seen any riding :x . Rightly so, I should say--the Altamont Ceramic Lites have taken a huge toll apparently with the ceramic coating completely gone by now and it's only been ~3 months. If I end up keeping the same commute next fall/winter I might be on a disc bike instead..
