My new ride. Pretty much stock except the stem. I swapped the stock 3T Arx Pro II 110mm to this 3T ARX Team 120mm. Pedals are Look KEO Blade 2 Ti. Ordered it saturday at about 35 % reduced price, since it was the last one at the shop and picked it up monday, so haven´t had time to weigh anything since I´m moving at the moment. My 2013 Scott Foil 15 Di2 was stolen from our storage which was broken into 3 days after moving in to my new apartment, so I bought this as a replacement. I loved the speed and acceleration of the Foil and I actually found it to be pretty comfortable with my Corima Aero+ clinchers and 25 mm Vittoria Open Pave on, but this thing is way more comfortable in the stock specs with 23 mm Conti and I am able to maintain the same pace at the same effort, so I am really pleased with it. I was hesitant to go back to mech. Ultegra 6800 coming from Ultegra 6770 DI2, but after about 100 km I think it shifts just as good if not even better in the front, which is a huge surprise to me. Really looking forward to putting in some hours on it and please feel free to comment and suggest..Image

That is really nice.

Always wanted a BMC, used to see a lot of them when I lived in Switzerland at a time when I didn't really know what they were!

Sorry about the crappy pictures, but my iPad sucks at taking pics..

Updates on the bike:
Zipp 404 FC tubs with Conti Sprinter Gatorskin 25s
Ultegra 6870 DI2 upgrade(couldn´t get used to mech after spending half a season on 6770 DI2)
Prologo Nago Evo CPC 134mm
Deda Zero 100 stem 100mm
Deda RHM02 BoB bars

Love it with these new additions. Very fast and comfy.

Forgot to mention the Stages PM I installed as well. Great tool for training..

@FIJIGabe: As of now I am very pleased with the setup. Only upgrade would be a carbon bar and stem once I find the shape i like the best. Leaning towards the Deda setup i run now, but the FSA compact bend is also in consideration. On the long run a set of low profile tubs would be nice, but this is my first attempt gluing tubs my self, so I have to wait and see how I get along with them. Love the process of gluing my own tires, since I want to be able to do most repairs at home, but it does take quite some time..

Any input is highly appreciated.

Can't provide input on gluing tires, but I think you're going along the right path. Congrats and enjoy the ride!

Looks the biz, i must say. i've got the same but run the 110mm 3t stem and zipp 303's or Hed Jet 6+ wheels for road based TT's or C24's for climbs. These things handle like no other bike you can really get them round corners super quick!
