    BMC rear triangle

    hey guys

    I like the industrial design of BMC frames but when I look at the rear triangle. It makes me think about the structural stress in that part.

    Does BMC frames has the fame of cracking in that part ??

    thanks !!

    No. The seat stays don't hit the seat tube much below the point where they do on other bikes with sloping top tubes. And they are that way to induce more flex in the seat tube to improve the ride...and to look cool.
    ... 'cuz that's how I roll.
