It feels like getting back with an ex-girlfriend but I'm just so convinced it will work out this time. So after a first failed attempt to love this plump lady I figured I'd give it one more try. So what's changed since I bought and sold this bike within a week in 2015? Well she hasn't changed much. The frame actually added holes for a shimano direct mount rear brake...which is super sweet! Besides that it's the same old bike just no foam in the seatpost this time.

weights:
Frame-1231g
Fork-363g
Headset-93g
Seatpost-224g

My Aerofly bar ended up cracking while clamping the shifters so I threw on my trusty control tech Viento CL 38cm. Current weight 7.6kg with some easy places to clean that up. Rode 50miles to and from work and it was great. it just rode like a normal bike.

What are your planned upgrades? And do you have a build list? Interested to see the breakdown on this beauty!

I'll post a build list but I don't have weights for most of the stuff since I was super impatient when building as usual. As for upgrades it's a lot of small stuff like cleaning up the cockpit, different brakes, housing, seat post tinkering, headset tinkering.

Love the TMR01. I was looking forward to seeing it with the aerofly bars, so I'm disappointed that they cracked, but the bars pictured probably look better on there anyways. Nice commuter bike. :thumbup:

Done for now. I've got some small upgrades planned but pretty happy with the current setup. Hopefully I can get out tmrw and get some pics in sunlight Image

Now we're talking. Those wheels look great on your BMC.

Sometimes making-up is worth it ... for awhile. Oh, you were talking about your bike.

Some acetone on the spacers and stem would look good. But man that is a dope bike. Let's see those outside shots!
