    I like the bike. I hate the camera angle. Please take a photo from a height equal or higher than your handlebars.

    Really? I've got carbon cages and they've never marked up my bottles, they've never broken, and yep they're light and look good. Seriously, do some cages have problems with all of these things?? I ride with a bunch of guys and I think they all have carbon cages and no one ever has a broken cage or drops a bottle unless they drop itů?? Strange, it's almost like complaining about helmets falling off peoples head so they've decided to simply wear construction hardhats while cycling instead. Huh?

    I'm not a huge fan of the paint job but the white is a nice touch. IMO, the SLR01 looks a lot better.

    I usually leave a cm or two on top of the stem for resale purposes.

    Carbon cages look great but IME, they tend not to hold bottles well. I'd rather have the extra insurance of a traditional cage.

    Lol, thanks! It's got a 130mm on there right now but I'll probably go back to a 120.

    Arundel plastic ones are fairly inexpensive, hold the bottle well and look cool.



    Arundel carbon ones cost about the same as a bike from Walmart.. but they work well and look really cool.

    i think that stainless steel cages have a nice aesthetic

    obviously they work too, which seems to be secondary to the bottle cage market.

    And, Mrs. Fred complained that the generic carbon cages I put on her bike are "too tight" compared with the old stretched out alloy ones she previously had.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    In certain circumstances, yes. My colnago has king Ti cages, which work very well, have the classic look, and are the same weight as carbon cages. But the classic look of the frame matches the classic look and era-appropriateness of the cages. In this case, the BMC has a very modern, non-traditional appearance that in some of our opinions, does not work as well with the classic look of the steel cage. A good carbon cage holds a bottle just as well as a stainless cage. If you are ejecting bottles with the likes of an Arundel, the problem is probably the bottle, the circumstances surrounding the bumpy conditions or the crash, or user error and not the cage.

    Ironically, I have those same cages on my fixed gear and they don't hold my bottles very well. Not as nicely as my arundels anyway. Speaking of which, have you guys heard about the arundel cages?

    I was heavily considering another BMC in my stable (this was my target or the TMR02), but I've had 2 warranty issues in the past that I can't overlook. CC came through with no issues though. Also selling my SLR01 today.

    Nice bike!
