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

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!
