Ah fantastic!! Congrats, a great day for you!
Can you post some pics?

47? Can you tell me your height?
Excited for you!!



I’m 170cm and BMC included a longer seat post to accommodate my 70cm saddle height. I could’ve gone with 51cm but the TT was at 53.5cm which will exceed my liking.


ok very good, yeah the tt is quite long, the more i look at the frame graphs above i think 47 is the way to go. i only need 66.5 saddle height but want shorter reach then my current bike and want lower bars too. thanks!

You definitely need to sit on both 47 and 51. Equally feels identical but not on paper.

Wow. Looks great. That down tube looks so nice and fat. Most photos don’t do it justice. You’re does there on the second photo. Thanks for sharing

Yes, any frame smaller then 51 cm will be sloped. I know many doesn’t like it but I ride a frame that fit.

A bunch of nonsense saying you need 25-50cm of standover clearance to your crotch and something about it applying to both girls’ and boys’ frames.

I'm thinking to change slr01, but the dealer is very far to me, not free yet to view the frame. From the photo the red seem not the red like chili red, is it darker ?

It’s quite a dark red - and most important it is neither gloss nor matt but satin.

Actually the inner surfaces of the front triangle, as well as a part of the rear surfaces on the fork are glossy, the rest is satin indeed.

I think its 'swiss red' which is quite a deep and rich red. The BMC dealer here said when he was in italy it really stood out as a beautiful colour as i was considering the stealth black.
