And here is a detailed weight breakdown.
With my C24 wheels I was able to break into the sub 6.8kg zone. If i can shed another 100 or so grams I will be sub 6.8kg with the Rail52s.
Shot this during todays test ride after the rebuild. Love this bike
2012 Ridley Damocles RS
2012 Dekerf Team SST
On its way is a Stages power meter that I was fortunate to get through a team deal. I ended up going with the Rival arm so that I can run it on my CAAD8 race bike. In order to run it on the BMC I would need a GXP crank. Well luckily I scored a lightly used Sram Red Exogram crank from a fellow WW member (thanks 2002maniac!) It should be about 85 grams lighter than my current Force BB30 crank with the same Q rings. In order to run it on the BMC frame I'll need the Wheels Manufacturing adapter which should add some grams. All in all I should still walk away with a few saved grams and most importantly the ability to swap the Stages power meter between both bikes in a matter of a few minutes!
The Wheels Manufacturing adapters came in at 47 grams.
The entire set up is almost 40 grams lighter and will allow me to use the Stages power meter arm. Once it arrives I will collect the weight
Is it true that the BMC SLR01 has a BB86? If so, are there any cons about the use of adapters to get a BB30 crank work? I have a Scott Foil with BB86 and I like to upgrade my Ultegra 6700 crank with a Force 22 BB30 Crank but my LBS said it's better to use a GXP crank but I don't like that .
Regarding the BB standard it depends on the year. The earlier models up to 2012 (I believe) were all BB30. After than they switched to BB86, most likely because Shimano is the main drivetrain sponsor for the BMC team. I plan to do the first ride tomorrow with the new crank and adaptors so I will report later but have heard nothing but good things about the Wheels Manufacturing adapters. A lot of this comes down to a proper install. Many hate the BB30 standard as it can be finicky and creak often but a friend of mine who is a good mechanic did a great job and not a peep for a year + now.
Your LBS is right. The BB30 crank spindle is not long enough to fit. I think the diameter wouldn't fit as well.
How felt the ride with the new crank/adapter?
Thanks for the comment!

For some time I have been contemplating on getting a long cage RD in order to easily run larger cassettes for those long climbing days. After doing some reading and thinking I decided to get the new Sram Force22 rear derailleur. That's right, an 11 speed RD for my 10 speed drivetrain. It was actually less expensive than the 10 speed version. There was no real reason why it wouldn't work as the indexing for the 11 speed group is in the shifters and not the RD. The cage also provides enough room for a 10 speed chain as the 11 speed is just slightly narrower. The RD came is at 187 grams so there is only a 14 gram penalty.
I installed it last night and after some limit screw adjustments the shifting was as great as it was before. Finished photos coming soon!
I had a stupid incident where I won't go into details but the bike ended up falling down and ended up with a crack in the top tube. It was more of a spiderweb type crack and no carbon went missing. I like the frame and ended up having it repaired. Here is a before and after photo:
As you can see the repair looks fantastic and you really need a closer look to tell anything. It was also a lot cheaper than a new frame!
Now it's rebuild time with finished photos to come
