which is better and why between this two premium carbon frame BMC SLR01 disc andColnago c64?

I think BMC beacuse it have a internal cabel routing, di2 inegrated box on oblique tube, more aerodynamic shape of the tubes, low rear seatstays, lower weight of frameset etc...

You pretty much listed all the reasons why the BMC is better... ;)

Test ride them both is possible, then select the one you like more.

Keep in mind the BMC stem is -12 and proprietary. Different lengths available but not rise.

If you want all that then not the C64. The C64 is a highly desireable old man's cruiser (see the recent anti-Colango topic). :D

I love my C59 and if replacing it, a C64 would be at the top of my list. I like the all around nature of the bike, geometry, balanced feel and handling. I don't need a twitchy steering, stiff as a board, all out race bike. I'd also be really annoyed had I bought my dream frame for $4,000-5000 and it wasn't perfect in every regard.

That budget (unfortunately) seems to be standard fare these days. Pick your label.....

Need to start a thread on the commoditization of bikes.

Why are you comparing these two bikes? BMC is similar to Tarmac, Colnago is different species:) I would choose Colnago because it will make me smile whenever I see it. No feelings for BMC, great bike, but I would not turn my head when it passes me.
