:thumbup:
Is the going to be a climbing bike (Mavic SSC R-Sys)?
How tall are you? (I am 171 cm and I ordered a 51 cm).

I’m 170cm but I was mostly concerned about the TT of the 51 as it was 53.5. My comfortable reach is at 52cm. My set up is an all around bike but if there is a climb I am more than happy to climb it.

(I am 171cm and I normally ride a TT 53cm and a 11cm stem; therefore size 51cm for the BMC)

If it is a all around bike, why not mid profile wheels with 35-40mm? That would be a compromise between low profile like the R-Sys and 60mm wheels. What made you choice the R-sys?

My LBS hooks me up and often gives me the best price. I have enve 4.5ses at my disposal. if I need aero but after riding the R-Sys and being able to hold and maintain 45-46kph on my own. Wheels seems fine to be used for an all around riding.

To give you a idea how it looks with Enve wheels. Tis my new BMC SLR01 with the Enve's 4.5 with Enve hubs.
Went for the RIM version to get my desired position:
- BMC stem is max 13cm and i need a 14cm stem.
- Angle of my stem is 12 degrees and the BMC is 8 degrees

I love the clean look of the disc version but i hate that they don't have a solution for using you're own stem.

Very nice and still looks clean. I have a Richie Porte tiny frame style. Such a big gap in their sizing chart.

I share the same opinion that between 47 and 51 this is a big gap.
If you take the Pina for example they have 11 different sizes; Here for example 46.5, 50 and 51.5.
I can remember the days that we could order our frame in each different cm! Now it is more like XS, S, M, L etc....

I think BMC should have made a size between 47 and 51cm.

I reckon the Zipp 303 Disc's work well on mine.

What's the clearance like with these on the SLR01 DISC? What tyres are you using?

Thanks

Yeah and what even worse is they handle like a totally different bike.
fork offset= 41.6mm across all sizes.
size 51 has 72 degree head tube angle, result in 66mm trail -> handling is on the stable side but nothing out of ordinary for these small sizes from any brands. Someone who normally ride size 54 can hop on size 51 without issue.
size 47 has 70.5 degree head tube angle, result in 76mm trail -> by far the slowest handling bike ridden in the modern peloton. Other bikes that share this shallow head tube angle at least have more fork offset to bring trail number down. Even their recent BMC Timemachine Road in the same size is a whole lot faster handling.

Someone who familiar with size 51 and then hop on size 47 that set all the position at the same place may find themself couldn't corner at all.
