Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Good catch! There is a slight incline where I took this picture. Had to let some air out to stop the bike from rolling.

BMC has way too many logos, weird seat stay, incredibly busy and oh so hot. All that doesn't matter, because it all works together like eggs benedict. Its' a lot going on, but it sure is good. HOT.

Definitely HOT. The only thing missing is an Easton EC90 crankset.

BMC would be HOT if it didn't have Zero Gravity brakes. Everything else is good.

And ... they just look damn good in person.

Those have to be about the shortest reach bars I've ever seen though.

Check out some CX rigs, you'll find some short reach bars over there.

Sorry, it's a not for me as well. Not crazy about the black and white scheme, wheels are meh, saddle er, not the best looking, crank would look better in black to match the bike, and, as usual, too much logo for me...

I have to confess I wouldn't mind trying a SMP saddle. They look rather comfy actually.

Actually they are a great saddle. i bought a SMP Dynamic for my Ridley about 6 mos. ago and by far the
most comfortable saddle i have ever ridden. and I have been riding since 1977, { old guys rule** set-up is not difficult a little tilt and good to go. i plan on replacing my Romin on my other bike with the same SMP saddle. Once adjusted at least for me i have forgotten it even being there. Most saddles i am constantly moving around, this just fits right!

I'd be curious to try one but they're expensive and hideous. One or other I could handle but both? Naaaah.

Yes on the Giant (except the bar tape)

No on the Ridley (too busy for my eyes)

Can't explain why any further...
