As a totally non-biased party.

This is the coolest bike I've seen in a while. BMC, still producing the goods.

Funny story: French cycling magazine l'Acheteur Cycliste stole the photos in the first post of this thread, which are all mine, and published them in their magazine. They even had the balls to write "exclusif!" on the cover.

Gave me photo credit, funny enough, but did not ask permission or pay for the shots. Stole my Trek Madone 7 images as well (a story which we also broke). So two big features, all stolen. If I was working freelance, the number and size photos they used would have run them around $1000, perhaps more.

They also stole photos from a French photog, the only other guy to shoot the BMC in the 10 minutes it was outside that day. He is suing them for his payment, I've had our company lawyers send a letter.

If you're French, consider spending you mag dollars elsewhere... quite obviously run by scumbags.

/thread derailment.

And back on topic:

I rode one at Interbike. Brakes are excellent, actually. I quite liked it. That's all I was really paying attention to, can't get much else out of a short ride on a quickly fitted bike. Feels stiff, isn't too heavy. Looking forward to getting one in.

It feels sharp like a knife :lol: and You cannot stop accelerating :noidea:
Cornering is o.k. but not her preferred way to drive. The shortest line enter two points is a straight! :D

I hope this link works. It's not finished. The right stem has not arrived yet...

Try posting to ImageShack or another photo-specific site (facebook isn't good).

The TMR01 is simply stunning, but at around $16K with Di2 in Australia, I doubt they will sell many.
Id seriously consider one at the prices other top brands are ripping us off at, but $16k is just ridiculous!
