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

BMC SLT Team 01

Last weekend I was in able to ride a BMC Team. It was fast, but I was still comfortable....I really liked the ride. I looked back through the forums, and really didnt see many threads about this bike. Anyone here ride one?

I see this bike everytime I walk in to the LBS, Palo Alto Bicycles. However, there's only one person I've personally met with this ride. It's a beautiful bike from an engineering and design vantage point but how it rides I have no experience to comment. Check Roadbikereview.

Yeah, I noticed that a few weeks ago. I gotta say, that is some of the most fabulously-executed & imaginative animation I've ever seen in a computer GIF. Excellent stuff, blindvelcro!

BMC pro machine

I was in Hampton Trails Bike Shop in Hampton TN a few weeks ago...and the guy there had several of them.. he had a BMC pro machine built up with Dura Ace... and was the sweetest looking ride I have ever seen.. (He also had a full line of Lightspeeds and these BMC's just knocked all the shine right off those bikes..... If you have the bucks (and they are very proud of those bikes).. more poewer to ya.. I dont think there is a better looking Bike on the Planet.. (sorry Dr. Pete you know Ive been covetous ofd your steed for months).. But this BMC pro machine (black carbon).. is a crazy good looking ride....If I had the cash I would be riding one this moment..

That is a beautiful bike. You need to take some update pics with the new gear!!! How long have you had it, any problems? Thanks for the input.

Just for you guys, this is the best I can do. Too much snow outside right now!



3MTA3, yea stage 17, but I'm not going to ditch it in the middle of a ride. I don't think I would get a new one from a chase car.

Here's mine coming together. Managing somehow to put this together very cheap. Got the frame, fork and seatpost ('06) for $600. Hed Jet 50s for $500. (Unpictured) Modolo KX bars for $60 and 2010 Sram Force group for $734. All I need to find is a screaming deal on an EC90 stem and the whole thing will come in under $2k!

I hope that the only cables you find will end up costing $1000 so that I can be less jealous.

2009. i was told 2010 but it ended up not being. the only significant change for the 2010 version was better brakes, and uni-directional carbon, which sram say primarily provides a "better substrate for graphics," ie nothing to care about. still for $734 would you be mad?

I like the BMC frames.. never rode one tho. Eddie, did you find that frame in NYC?
How do you like it? How do you chose a frame over all the ones they have to offer?

Just as a comparison,
Back in 2005 I built up my Colnago CT-1 (a 2003 frame) Titanium with carbon rear triangle, for around 2100
not including the seat and seat post which I had already. The frame was used though as was the grouppo,
full Campy mix of Chorus and SR.
