The BMC frame design doesn't really do it for me but this looks great. Best colour scheme I've seen on one yet.

Very nice.
OTOH the super aero look would justify a standard crankset.

Looks great. Love the improvements you made.

I looked really hard at the TimeMachine before buying my TeamMachine. In the end, the terrible road conditions where i live just made the TeamMachine more livable.

Cant make much different as light as they are, but it may clean up the look a bit. I will try it. thx

The chain length looks perfectly fine on the first picture. Big ring - small sprocket with the jockeys vertically aligned.

Second pic is normal with the fashion large cassette.

Is it too big? Also, -6 stem with less stack may look better.
