Yeah a friend and I are both getting the new TMs.
I'm going with the SLR01 FOUR and hes ordered the SLR TWO
Both landing late August in Australia.
I'm currently on the 2020 RM Mod running DA so my plan is to mainly just use the FOUR frame with my conponents.
Will consider the 351 wheelset once in hand but will probably keep my Splines.

I think the 351 wheelset doesn't accelerate that well, it's a little bit heavy (something like 1650 grams). But it's a decent wheelset none the less.

Swedius, are the wheels you are referring to the 351’s on the SLR one or the 351 SL’s on the SLR01 four? I think the latter should be lighter (given the SL suffix) and I’m interested to know if anyone knows how much lighter and/or if they’re wider than the regular 351’s? I’ve ordered the SLR01 four

oh and it’s due to arrive in Australia end of August. Very few images of this model with the pearl blue paint on the net so fingers crossed it’s as good as I think it will be!

Do you know by any chance the weight of the big spacer after the headtube?

Any weight reports of the frame and fork alone...? I wonder if it is lighter than previous 2020 SLR TeamMachine frameset...?

Do you know the weight without bottle cages and garmin mount? The official weigth of 7.2kg from the BMC website looks a bit untrustworthy :)

The TeamMachine SLR01 Two is 2nd or 3rd on my list for a new bike. At least if I got the naming convention is right. Looking at the SLR01 with Dura Ace. I have 2 hangups with the bike #1 the wheels. I think they let the bile down are not up to its caliber. Given an option they are not a set I would purchase. Sure, I could buy the frame and build it up. My second issue is for the price point I feel it should come with a power meter.

Still on my list along with the SL7 and the Venge.

if you're a corvette guy, the BMC's have a similar aesthetic. all angular and edgy. really not sure about that steerer tube though.

Anyone with real world experience vs 2020 (or older) teammachine?

A local shop has a great deal on the '20 slr02 force axs model but I haven't seen the 2021 to compare.

I see the appeal and virtues of the Corvette. However, I do not own enough gold chains and tracksuits to actually purchase one.

Looking good! Will you share some details about the wheels/hubs? Is it a 51? I've got this bike on order (2 weeks still).. can't wait!
