I gave up riding back in 1994 and now I am ready to get back into it. I bought a brand new 2013 BMC RM01 53cm/55 top tube. I'm going to build it with 2015 Campagnolo Super Record, THM Fibula brakes, Mcfk bars, stem, seat and ahead cap, Mavic Cosmic Carbone SSC SLR wheels, Speedily Zero/titanium pedals Etc....


The was delivered Friday!

My wife goes in late August for a custom fit for a new Passoni Top Force W with Campagnolo Super Record EPS, Lightweight wheels etc...
Going to be very similar to this one but with Campy!

Very, very nice. A new BMC and a Passoni. Please do keep us updated on your BMC build and don't forget to start a Passoni build thread when the time comes.

Waiting to see your BMC but AS WELL the Passoni. Looks like you are a Campy fan but for heavens sake build the Ti Passoni up with a Di2. Like shown by Passoni.

Congrats! I'm also about to get a new ride--first once since 2002. All the best with your new build, and your wife's bike is beautiful too.

I saw that Passoni at Bike Effect in Santa Monica. It's a beautiful bike.

Looking forward to seeing this done. I like the colorway on that frame. I don't remember seeing that option. You should also hit a decent weight with the nice parts going on there. Any clue to what the frame and fork weight is?
