Beautiful bike. :thumbup:
Now this one especially cries for a -17 stem.
Some deep rims would be a plus,too.

Ok, that's nice. +1 on the stem, though.

That is an amazing looking bike. It just looks like a rocket, and with a solid build.

Great looking bike. I'm looking forward to seeing it with some deeper wheels :thumbup: I'm extremely happy with my SLR01 but this might be the next bike on my list.

I am actually a fanatic of classic looking metal bike but


I was afraid of how bikes would look "in the 21st century" but this one is stunning

Geometry looks really really good for long and low position

I'll look into the -17 stem, it was my first thought also.

Might post a pic later with race wheels

It's no light weight, i'd say 7.5kg as pictured.

Beautiful. Can you give us a review of the ride? Wish I had the pockets for one.

Race spec

Brief ride report:

I'll basically compare it to the ride of my Canyon.

The bottom bracket stiffness is on par or maybe superior to the Canyon
I haven't done enough cornering yet to get an idea on head tube stiffness

The best comparison I can give in ride quality is that the BMC in daily driver mode (Fulcrum Racing 7 Schwalbe Durano S 95/105psi) feels the same as the Canyon did with HED Belgium rims and Veloflex tyres.
The BMC also seems to soak up heavy impacts much better than the Canyon, through the handlebars and through the seat post.

I had a moderate cross-headwind for the first 30km of my ride, I didn't feel that gusts of wind affected the bike any more than they did on the Canyon.

I am keen to use the HED clinchers to see what the ride is like with them
