Personally, it depends on what you're looking for? better stiffness? or something comfy?
The SLR01 will be more comfortable for centuries etc.
Well, I do agree that it's definitely tempting to get new bike especially for such pricing.

I absolutely loved the ride, look and weight of my Cannondale SuperSix but the geo wasnt ideal for me so it just never felt quite "right" fit wise. Riding a Cervelo now and while i preferred the look and weight of the Cannondale, the geo of the Cervelo is a much better fit.
Although its hard to put aside that asthetic aspect fit always comes first!
So true. Only about 25% of bikes have a geo and a frame size that will fit me perfectly and that's one thing I won't compromise on. I really, really wanted an Oltre but with the 73 degree seat tube and 25mm setback on the dedicated post it would never have fitted quite right. Ended up with a Foil team issue, very happy.
It's likely that one or either of the BMC or the Cipo will fit slightly better.
The question goes back to the OP... (because don't come in asking other people what they want in a bike and expect it to matter to you...)
What do you like and not like about the BMC?
Would use the BMC for the 100milers and the Logos for the 30 mile chaingang rides!!!

Hence, protocol for buying a new frameset: Find a bunch that floats your boat. Pick the one width the right geo, be really picky about it too. Forget all other framesets you wanted earlier.
If the BMC fits you, and the Cipo get your blood running, it's time to check a geo chart for the final yey or ney.
Yep, if it fits you can ride anything, if it doesn't fit you can't ride anything!
Sounds like you're taken w the Cippo tho
I was expecting more of a 'comfort' type ride but it's an absolute rocket. I rode the Triple Bypass in Colorado and was also surprised how well the Logos climbed. It's twitchy like a race bike, corners great, and climbs better than any bike I've ever ridden.
I've never ridden an SLR01 so I can't compare the two but forget what you read about the Logos...it's a race bike for sure.
