Hello there

I am putting together my new racing rig built around a BMC SLR01 (50cm)...here are the first couple of things....

integrated handlebar (schmolke tlo bars + oliver grest 13cm stem, bonded)

and for the brakes I opted for the Fibulas...

for this bike, the idea is to have a dependable racing set-up with Campy SRM rather than a pure WW build
...but not pig heavy either ;-)

...more to follow...cheers

Looking forward to seeing your build! Correct me if I'm wrong but are you from DC (or the surrounding area)? The map under your handlebar/stem combo looks very familiar...kind of like the one at CycleLife in Georgetown :)

haha not exactly. It's a cool shop with bunch of cool dudes. I do many of their rides and etc. Once your build is complete you should come out for the saturday rides to test ride it :thumbup: I'm just putting finishing touches on my SLR01!

Like the progress :thumbup: You should come out to one of the Saturday morning 9am shop rides for a proper test ride! We are also doing a century ride tomorrow to Mt. Sugarloaf tomorrow at 8am.

Here are a few pics of the complete bike with my training wheels....(sorry abt the crappy pics, but my camera sucks ;-) )

Mostly standard stuff: Campy Super Record + Super Record SRM cranks, SRM PC7, black Nokon Cables, Ksyriums SLRs.

The only WW parts are Schmolke TLO bars & NORA carbon stem 130mm (bonded together with HM carbon), THM Fibula brakes, a couple of Schmolke carbon bolts/ and Tune DC14 skewers.

Total weight incl PC7 head unit is 6.55 kg or 14.5lbs. With LW Millestein (eventually!) and a couple of smaller things (suggestions pls??) it should get a bit lighter..

Frame weight for 50cm was a pig-tastic 960g according to shop, cheers :-)

Or come to the 10AM that leaves from Rock Creek Park. There's also a 7 as well (slightly different route).

I saw that stuff when I was in the shop the other day and was surprised to see such WW stuff in this area.

only on WW would a Campy SRM be called 'standard'.
This is boss. I love it! Can't wait to see it with LW's.

The ride looks great :thumbup: Should have asked one of the guys at the shop to throw on the LW wheels from the Venge to see what the total weight would be :lol:

You're right about the frame weight being a bit porky. I've seen the previous year models come in at less at size 53. Will have to check mine sometime soon. With the SRM it's still a great weight. See you around at one of the local rides :beerchug:
