I think it has potential. The enclosed aero drive chain would be worth an extra 2kph alone!

Does anyone know where the BMC Mass Streamer is sold? I can't find it for sale anywhere even though it's still on the BMC website. Discontinued?

It's even got Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting with TT shifters on the aerobar and on the brake levers!

Lol!

It was 12-25 with a 34t up front but I just changed it. It's now a Rotor Q Rings 38t up front and 11-28 in the rear. Pic to follow as soon as it stops raining!

I test drove the UrbanChallenge.. amazing bike. With Alfine specs and it's a rocket. Never thought I'd say this but the fenders actually look great on it too.

What size are the tire on that baby? It might just be the angle of the photo but it looks like there isn't a lot more room for larger tires.

They are Schwalbe Marathon Racer, 700's. I think there is a little room. I'll check more when I get home later.
