Time to upgrade my frame. Currently Riding 07 Madone 5.2 and seeing the BB flex when i look down at the FD while pedaling makes me cringe at the loss of power, and I just want something new.

Got 4 bikes on my list (I am getting good deals on these, and they are not mainstream bikes that everyone has).

BH Ultralight RC
Blue AC1 SL
Blue AC1

Will be using it for training, fast group rides, etc, with the intent of eventually racing and possibly doing some Duathlons in the future. Everything will be transferred over except bars stem and seat post. 6'1'' 165 lbs steady tempo rider.

Anything I left off, feel free to ask/comment.

I doubt you are really losing power from the BB flex, unless you get derailleur rub or other frictional loss. That said, there is nothing wrong with new gear and out of that list I like the BH G6.
