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.

Can’t you get those bars any lower?

;-)

Very purty.

I’d wager he could get those bars a little lower. I see some spacers between the stem and the headtube.

I also plan to follow Greg around via his Strava account and take his KOM titles.

<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.

Great bike!! Congrats.
