Hi there everyone.
I have got a problem with my new BMC Teammachine slr 02.

I just kept the frame and the seatpost from the original spec.
And the brakes also because I'm waiting for a pair of ultegras.

Well, can you guys help me out finding a longer seat post?
The stock one length is 300mm. I use 690mm of seat hight.
So I have maxed out the seatpost and still need another 20mm. 10mm out of frame and another 10mm to go in the frame
It is a 47 size frame and I'm 1,69mt high.

Where can i buy one like the ones that come on size 54 (330mm)?

I have the bike stopped.

:cry:

You should be able to get it from any BMC retailers. When I purchased my frameset we had to request from BMC to switch to longer seatpost and switch to ICS stem. :)

Good luck!

Thoughts? New cockpit looks clean imo.
I agree with you.
I like the clean look of the cockpit, especially the placement of the junction box on the downtube. I was able to demo a SLR01 Disc Two and SLR02 Disc One, and I couldn’t really tell much difference between the two frames.
I thought they both rode really nicely, and slightly more comfy than my Cervelo S5.

I ended up pulling the trigger on a SLR02 Disc One for three reasons:

A] I couldn’t achieve the proper stack height due to the proprietary stem (-12.5 angle) with the size 56 SLR01.

B) I didn’t want any more red or black bikes, and I really liked the Mexico Blue color.

C) Since I would’ve have to replace a lot of parts to fit my needs- different handlebar, stem, saddle, crankset (different length), wheel set and tires, I didn’t want to spend over $10,000.


I ended up getting a fantastic deal as well, so I’m very happy with the purchase.

I did upgrade the shifter, brake and crankset to Dura Ace 9170 and replaced the wheel set with Nox Falkor 36D rims, White Industry CLD hubs with CX-Rays spokes.

The only thing I’m waiting for are the matching color Berk Lupina saddle (the yellow saddle and the decals didn’t match) and the zero offset seatpost.
Beautiful bike! Do you know what it weighed stock?
It weighs about 16.3 lbs, 7.4 kg with DA pedals, Tune cages and Barfly Garmin mount.

Has anyone tried to fit 25mm wide with 18mm internal on the SLR02? Probably stick a 25mm width tire. Would it clear including the 105 brakes lol?

Should be have a look at this model's stem.

Looks like only on the Disc specific framesets.

Here is my build: Teammachine SLR01 three in size 51 upgraded with Ultegra R8050 di2, 38mm carbon clinchers, titanium skewers and fizik antares R1 saddle. Full build with pedals and garmin mount is 7.06kg. I don't have all the specific weights but I know my antares R1 is 150gr and the wheels around 1450grs. Di2 integration could have been better. I initially wanted to put the wireless unit into the downtube but didn't ordered the good length of cables so it will be for later.
Objective is to get it down to 6.8kgs with all the hardware except saddle bag, garmin and bottles. It should be possible by buying an integrated carbon bar, switching brake cables to Jagwire links, and maybe lowering the stem a bit more.

I have an SLR02, it is running Knight Composites (which I think are 17mm internal / 25.5 external, running 25mm GP4000s2. There is stacks of room - thinking about trying 28mm at some point - back should be easy, front should be okay but a bit tight.

Brakes are eecycleworks.

Don’t remember if they are 17 or 19mm internal width.. As for the tires, i’m running a Schwalbe pro one tubeless on the front and Michelin power endurance at the back, both 25mm. The Michelin sits flush with the outer edge of the rim while the Schwalbe is a bit bigger. Don’t think it would be a problem to run 28mm tires on my wheels but depends on the tire..

Can you remove the derailleur cable guide without having to remove the bottom bracket? Or, do you need to remove the bottom bracket to change cable inners?

You don't have to remove the BB. When changing cables you just need to snap off the plastic housing at the bottom of the frame/BB (which also requires detaching the cable from the FD) and take off the bit on the down tube so that you can fit your cable guide
