I love BMC frames. What year is this? I've not seen the enlarged lugging before...

Slightly off-topic:

Could you tell me what handlebars those are?

Minor (really a major) heartache.....
Bike on roof rack + 6ft Boom across entrance to car park = smashed Impec frame :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Up side is that new Impec frame is available so I will use this to upgrade to Sram 11 speed and one or two minor tweaks.

And I will start a separate thread with pic's of the new build.

Only thing that can't be replaced are the signatures on the frame including Cadel E / Philip G from BMC Racing and also Andy Riess - BMC owner
Stupid stupid stupid

Sorry about the bike. I have a wagon an put the bike inside the car. Then its also protected for crap hitting while driving and better fuel economy if not to please your wallet then for to lower CO2.

CBJ - I have a wagon too - an awesone B7 RS4 wagon
Most of the time the Impec and my partners TMR go inside the wagon with the rear seats folded forward. However in this case we were on our way to pick up some friends so we needs the rear seats - so there was no room inside the wagon for the bike - and I just had a 'seniors' moment and forgot I had a bike on the roof :cry:

The good news is that a new frame was available so I took the chance to upgrade to Sram 22.
Rode Impec Verion 2 today for 120 kms - just as awesome as teh first :lol:

Big thanks to Andy @ Kaos Custom Bikes in Melbourne for the build

I was at the BMC factory in Grenchen, Switzerland yesterday, where I stopped while walking from the train station to Velodrome Suisse to watch Jan Voigt set the hour record.

They had this nice little specimen on display:
