Why are you thinking of changing in the first place?

The BMC is probably the better bike in most ways, but the Cipo is a bit special. Depends what your motivations are :D

For disc brakes. If this year the disc brake will be approved and the all pro will use it, my bike maybe will be difficult to sell and the its value will be lower.

I do think the Cipollini will be stiffer and more aero, whereas the BMC should be a little more forgiving.

Comes down to what you want from a bike... do you like really stiff bike that takes off a like a rocket? Then Cippolini is for you. Do you value all day comfort and versatility? Then the BMC might be a better choice.

Only you can decide if you like disc brakes or not. As mentioned previously, if disc brakes are banned in the pro pelaton, then assume that the resale will drop slightly. Same thing does if the pro pelaton all goes disc brakes, then the resale on the Cippolini might drop.
