    I've tried Elite cages and they work well. The colors options are great but I'd rather stick with my King Ti cages.

    Nice bike!
    Thanks!, they are amazing bikes. From what I've heard, BMC was kind of a pain to deal with a few years back. However, it's actually run by BMC USA rather than a distributor nowadays so warranties don't seem to be an issue.

    Hopefully, that wasn't the main reason why you're selling it.

    If you were to throw on a black seatpost, stem, tape and different bar shape, that bike would be pretty sweet. I say sell the seatpost, stem, bars and saddle you have on there now and apply that money towards what I suggested above. Thats a great bike, just needs to attention to make her shine!

    I quite like it, except for the SRAM/Shimano mix and match.

    yeah, i know, i had parts left on my old bike, so i decided to reuse the 105 RD and 105 FD, got the 105 shifters on sale.

    when budget permits, i will be switching them for SRAM Force parts to match the BB30 Crank.

    Thanks

    I hate seeing a slammed forward saddle on a seat post with set back.

    True, i didn't notice that either, my friend just finished building it for me, i usually put my saddle a little further back, i am picking it up tomorrow. He just test rode it, to tune the bike for me. i will have to repost a pic once i have the bike set up for me.

    Why would you "submit" a bike that wasn't complete or finished anyway?

    Pardon me. I was just exited with the picture of my new bike and was sharing it.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk about it, but this isn't "show us your new bike" or "what bike do you ride". This thread is highly judgemental to begin with and it just seems odd when people post a bike that isn't complete or even in their own possession. I am certainly glad you are excited about it bike as you should be. I want to be excited about it too, but would rather see it when its completed is all.

    Cheers

    It's got a ton of potential. Losing the stack of spacers would help too.

    It looks like it's centered. The rails look pretty short and the clamp rather large.
