Looks like all I need to add to the stable is a carbon mountain bike to have a complete line-up.
Wasn’t planning on buying a new bike until this fall/winter but the deal I got on it was way to good to pass up. Full carbon build, SRAM Red groupset (TRP brakes), and Easton bars/stem/wheels. Without pedals its going to be teetering on the UCI legal weight limit of 14.99lbs.
Hoping to get out and do some racing on her before this season ends.
<rant> I hate how companies substitute random components, so your Red groupset isn’t a Red groupset anymore. Cervelo does that crap too. Scott does too, but they change all your SRAM chains/cassettes to Shimano because they shift better.
BMC, yum. Did you do the test ride and sell yourself on it? I was kinda avoiding going for that reason, ha ha.
I did the demo ride with Top Gear a few weeks back and we did a nice 40-50 mile ride and fell in love with it. I’ve been doing some pre-purchase shopping on Felts, Giants, Treks, Looks, C-dales but my budget was really keeping me from shopping the higher end models and brands like Cervelo, Scott, BMC, Guru, the Dura-Ace/Red groupsets, etc.. Came across this one in the size I ride, BMC’s size classifications are ridiculous, random fact, and the price was just way, way to good to pass up.
I rode the demo with Top Gear too. I was impressed with the BMC, it seemed lighter than my Madone. I rode the team edition, so it probably was – I hate that they give you stupid expensive stuff to ride but I like riding it!! .
I wasn’t a fan of the SRAM, nothing wrong with them just a personal preference on the double tap shifters. I guess if I had started riding with them instead of Shimano – I’d prefer SRAM.
