Cheers! wrote:I'd say just give it a quick tune up (new cables and housings + new tires (25mm) + new chain). A good wash (Take the cassette off the hub and wash it in hot soapy water with and old toothbrush). Then wax the frame and go enjoy a bike ride. No need to go and strip it down right away. There is nothing wrong with old as long the components work.
Thanks very much for the Advice ...Will be waxing the frame at the very least....cheers
I have quite a collection of Phonak BMC's in my collection. I suspect that might be a 2004 model, but it is tough to see from those photos. When you get it, post pics!
The bike from 2004 was quite innovative and had a mixture of different tube types and shapes. The lugs, too, were made of different materials. The beauty of it's design was it allowed for full-custom. framesets for each rider! Try doing that with a monocoque. It is clearly the forerunner of the current top-line BMC product, the Impec.
From a ride perspective, the examples I have are typical of modern race bikes in the World Tour from the perspective of the pursuit of stiffness at the expense of everything else. These frames intentionally build-up into really harsh-riding bikes. If you want a softer ride, you can try to run higher-volume tires and keep the pressures down a bit (if you're the 'size' of rider who can get-away with it). At the front end, the 3T fork was not the 'Team' fork, so I can't give you any comment on how the front-end will feel.
When you get the bike, make sure you pull the bottom bracket and seatpost out and give the bottombracket shell and seattube a really good cleaning inside.
Enjoy that bike.
