Hi all! Just put this beauty together. 2014 BMC Team Machine SLR01 with DA 9070. Came from Cervelo R3Team and let me say the frame feel is night and day different. Better in every regard. Lighter, stiffer, more compliant. The best climbing road frame on the market today imo. Image

Tight!
Specs? Weight? Btw I hope you didn't dial in your fit yet, as that tower of spacers really bothers me...

Off the bat, it looks like a promising build. It appears you've picked some nice components, but please give us a rundown of what you have put on the bike. My only concern, as efeballi points out, is that the fit may be off (maybe the wrong size frame?). That many spacers with that offset on the saddle tells me (and I'm an amateur) that the frame may be too small. I might be wrong, but it certainly isn't aesthetically pleasing.

It still appears to be a nice build, and there are many WW BMC's on this board, so you'll have plenty of company on here, and plenty of people to learn from, as you try to make your bike lighter!

Cool bike, it would look really bad ace with a -17 slammed stem.

I really love those bikes. They are probably my favs staight looking, do it all race bikes There is obviously a reason why that's pretty much all what the BMC team is riding day in day out. Great build although as the others mentionned I would question the actual safety of amount of spacers on that steer tube at the moment. I would also have to give you a C- or a D for not lining up the tire marking with the valve hole. ;-)

I'm guessing you need the spacers for a proper fit. If so, rock on.

He came from and R3 which has a higher stack/taller headtube than this so my guess is that he needs the spacers.....the lack of appreciable drop is what bothers me aesthetically. Nice ride though otherwise.

Looks fast! Possibly the cleanest rear light mount i've seen.
