Crank Set: Going to get a Quarq and put the aero rings on it
Chain: KMC
Wheelset: Zipp 900 disc and 404 Front
Tyres: Don't know, open to suggestions

Nice! 8)

Is it possible to adjust the saddle angle with the clamp?

Is that the configuration you use, or can you drop the front end? That looks like very low drop for a time trial configuration

:thumbup: A better picture of the whole bike would be awesome with race wheels! I ride mine with training wheels too but it just does not look right compared to the bike with my disc and H3 or 808 front wheel.

@justkeepedaling-
Nope that is just how the shop set it up; I can get abit lower :thumbup:

@Juanmoretime-
I have a specialized tri-spoke and a spinergy rev-x that I can put on it for some pics if that would work!

I had to drive down to a bike store a few hours away from me last night to pick it up but after work today I will make sure to get some good quality pictures.

Here are some pics with my only "aero in the slightest" wheels; I'm saving up for a deep/disc combo but I'm a 19 year old factory worker so it might take a little while :(
I have a race tomorrow so I couldn't really get out and ride more than 20 or so but I already love it! The position that I have set up is very conservative for two reasons; I broke my back and both my feet when I was 14 in a free style ski competition and so I have very little flexibility. I'm also waiting till I get a power meter on it before I tweak anything extensively. Still need to get it weighed, I forgot to put it in the car this morning so that I can use the factories super scales :smartass:

Without further ramblings!

I'm new to all the proprietary time trialing gear; I rode a trek 5.2 with clip-ons in TTs before this so its kind of a whole new ball game for me! I would love any seat, bar, wheels, or general suggestions that you all might have. The list I made in my first post was really just an idea and I'm very open to changing it.

Little about me for suggestion sake:
19 years old
5'6"
135 Lbs.
FTP 290
10 months of riding and a few races so don't flame me to much if I sound like a fred :beerchug:

Thanks for looking!

Edit- Sorry forgot to say size medium Tillquist!

The Spinergy Rev/Specialized 3 spoke wheelset on your bike looks cool! Collision of retro and modern :)

Lovely bike. But seen as your 5'6", I can't help but think you would be better with the small frame size. Seen how versatile the BMC is and especially the stem, you could easily obtain your current position on a small and in the future if you choose to optimise your position, you would be able to get a much lower due to the shorter head tube length. Just my opinion though. Once again, lovely bike and I hope you enjoy it.

Smoking hot bike, love it...will be great when (if) you eventually decide to buy a disc for the rear. Best of luck for the racing.

Thanks for the comments everyone! The tri-spoke and Rev-X were my dads, he raced on them back in the 90s and gave them to me. I kind of like the look of them on the BMC as well.

Your probably right; however like I said I have a very bad back from old injuries and can't get much lower. I also wanted an easy resale if I get into financial trouble.
