Any idea on availability? I still think based on their pricing it makes more sense to buy the module and build it up yourself.

In my short list for sure. New Pinarello Dogma is probably 6 months away so I might just wait for a bit and decide.

I've never been a Pina guy but I like their bikes... I'm just trying to figure out 47 vs 51 fit wise. I do think by being late to market they are losing some sales.. Venge and Madone are out already.

I am not in a hurry to get a new bike, still happily riding my F8. I think if I were to get the TimeMachine I will go with 51, I am 5'8" btw.

I am pretty sure Venge and Madone are both really great bike. It will be splitting hair to say one is better than the other. Ultimately it all boils down to personal preference. All of them are great bike.

I’m on the same boat and juggling between BMC and Madone SLR to replace my current Foil. I feel I’m more biased at the moment towards Trek at the moment mainly due to colors. I don’t want yet again black bike. Refliptive might weight a ton but hopefully it is worth it.
Scott Foil
Shimano 9150
Shimano FCR-9100-P

Trek ICON paint scheme are great! I am sure they weight a ton :lol:
I personally like Brushed Liquid Metal the best. It is subtle yet elegent :thumbup:

yes if I was to get a Trek it would be brushed liquid metal as well.. that paint is sic.. I'm 5'8" as well Survivor but with legs of someone shorter .. which is why a 47 BMC might work with a longer stem. I may have some spacers to get the stack up.

one thing that bugs me about the Trek is the BB90.. I have a THM Clav SE crank and not sure BB90 is a good match for that crankset .. PF86 on the BMC will be simple.

The seat post length is 210mm for the size 47 & 51 frame, 270mm for others.
Dose anyone know what is the max saddle hight or rail hight from the BB center of size 47/51 frame?

good question... I'll send that one off to BMC.. they usually take 3-4 days to answer. I'm eyeing the 47 because I want more post showing..but I have short legs, but 210 is pretty short.

Seems very close then to the new Venge, which is 960g frame, 385g fork, and 440g bar/stem.

I have to assume that the BMC bar/stem combo is close in weight to the Spec, no? If so, the bikes are about 100g apart.
