BMC Road Racer SL 01

I'm looking at nice aluminum racing frames. Does anyone have any experience with/race one of these? How does it compare to a CAAD 8/9? Any other suggestions in the 1000-1500$ frame range? I've looked at the Cervelo Soloist Team, but I don't think the geometry would be right for me.

I have looked at those SLO1's..... I just dont like the colors that are available for 2007.. I came really close to getting one... a friend of mine just built up a new Team Machine and it is really really nice.. an amazing bike.. just too many bones for me..

several of my riding friend ride streefires and they are really nice.. the nyde carbon Pro Machine I think is the ultimate Bicycle.. on the planet.... but way $$$$..

I wound up getting a Colnago Arte... It has the same idea as the Slo1 with the carbon rear traingle.. and 6000 alum front triangle.. I think the Colnago Arte won cause I got the whole bike for 1900. I am supposed to get it tomorrow.. we will see ... I might have it on e-bay in a week if its a turd
