Hi Guys,

Answers to your questions:

@piercebrew: My previous bike was a Cannondale F-SI black inc. A race hardtail which is very fast but also uncomfortable (like all hardtails ofcourse). The difference in riding is like night and day. The fully BMC Agonist is very smooth, it took me some time to get the suspension setup perfectly but after that it's perfect. I ride long distances easier on this machine. The overall grip on the rear tire is also much improved but with one major drawback, you cant feel the rear sliding very well so riding on the edge of tire grip is tricky. The shifting ob the F-SI (XTR DI2) is much better than the sram on this bike. The DI2 shifting is more predictable and precise.

I sometimes ride (and maintain) mu friends scalpel 2. I aree with you that these bikes are not as smooth as some other hardtails but remember that these machines have suspension mainly to get you more speed not more comfort :D . I think the agonist is buit for a little bit more comfort and compliance. They will probably launch their new XC race models in the coming months, these are more like the scalpel. The BMC agonist will remain their marathon/light trail riding bike.

@kokoriko: Apparently the FOX lockout levers have got some quality issues that's why some manufacturers have chosen DT Swiss as supplier for lockout levers. My BMC has this lever from DT Swiss it locks front and rear or only rear in one movement with two "clicks".

Thanks! I assume you are using Fox shock and fork. I also have some serious problems with Fox remote lockout, especially dual locking system, they have some serious problems with dual remotes... I am looking to find a solution, will go for a twinloc or one that you use DT Swiss

Could anyone with the top model please take a photo showing the "chain catcher" behind the front chainring, and possibly measure how many mm from chain catcher plate to chainring?
