I have only seen the BMC in person since the tarmac disc isn't out yet. Looks super clean and nicely done from an aesthetic point of view with the way they route the cables under the stem. Comes with a hefty price tag though. The new tarmac's look great as well. Which would you guys pick?

Though they both have something in common(for example small rear triangle), new BMC SLR01 looks beautiful to me but new Tarmac SL6 doesn't. but Tarmac has more variable color option. Black/Grey/White or Pink/Purple/Black Camo paint frame looks quite good, I think. Anyway, If I have a chance to choose between them, I would pick BMC.

BMC SLR01 disc TEAM for sure!
(I personally don’t like the current paint of the new tarmac but love that red of the BMC team)

Personally, I would pick the Tarmac because of the size 56 frame fit me well.
For me, the deal breaker for SLR 01 was the proprietary stem (-12,5 angle).
I ended up getting a SLR02 Disc One in Mexico Blue and put a -17 degree stem.
