Please tell us build lists and final bike weights. That is quite a collection, BTW.

Nice collection sir! As mentioned above the BMC looks although it may be the wrong size (if that is the actual position you ride).

Thank you all for the nice comments.
BMC sizing is 55cm.
Felt and Cervelo are 56cm.
I am 5'11". I agree that it looks big, but remember that the frame is not sloping.

The BMC SLT01 is one of my all-time favorite bikes. Looks really nice!

My brother had SRAM RED on his bike before which I tried. Had a hard time with the front shifting. I guess I did not give it a chance. SRAM RED is light though.
