It isn't a WW, but it is a rocket.

I dig but where is the rest of the girls? :) Proper stem slammage too! What was the final weight with the SRM + build list? Also, tell us about the ride. I heard it's a super fast bike but comfort becomes an issue on longer rides.

Looks rather pro! You're not are you? Man, those shoes look uncomfortable. Do you always employ models to hold your bikes for photos?

Ride quality is wicked fast. When power is applied, the frame feels very well locked together. The bottom bracket is certainly the stiffest I have ever riden so far. It isn't a feather weight but it does climb well. I hope to have the final weight sometime when I can get a scale, but it isn't unreasonably heavy. I race ITU triathlon (draft legal Olympic distance) which have relatively flat courses thus I'm not too worried about saving every gram. The draw back that a lot of people have said is that it is harsh and it is true. With the stiffness comes every little bump of the road. With that said though, I don't think it feels uncomfortable and I have yet to feel any negative effects on my rides from it.

Brakes do suck... but even changing brake pads the standard way (taking everything off) only took about 10-15 min. I have a few ideas bouncing around in my head on how to make the process easier. We'll see if it works.

The ladies are pretty nice. :wink:

Interesting. Other people I have spoken to that have one of these think the brakes are awesome. Take a bit to get used to the power but stop really well.

I often wonder why you don't see more people in ITU events riding aero road bikes. Hardly any in the events I've seen.

TrekUk, why would you say that? What makes the bike not his? I doubt he has any reason to lie about a bike he owns. Or maybe because it's not a Trek ;)

Straight from the man's twitter:

This is how you introduce a new sponsor. Thank you #BMC for the sweet ride. Everyone else, take notes. http://instagram.com/p/cUS2FirClh/

Oskeres, ride the wheels off that thing and best of luck with your ITU training!

Woah, someone has a great photo of their high end bike and a low post count? Must not be theirs! -sarcasm
Can we be respectful here please? Such a harsh accusation.

But seriously, awesome build. I like how the subtle red accents on the wheels and tires tie it all together. That must be one fast, solid machine!

Hah, not the first time TrekUK has gotten his panties in a bunch. Derek is, in fact, a real triathlete AND a United States Navy Veteran.

No offense, but I'm going to knock you for only posting half the picture. C'mon man!

BTW, beautiful bike, and above all, thanks for your service.
