    Here is my new pro machine. I finished the build about two weeks ago, but have not been riding it yet because it's been raining, and raining and raining here in Denmark since I completed it :(

    So instead of riding it today I took a few pics :) The stickers on my ZIPP 404 rear wheel had a few scratches on them, so I took them off and actually I think the de-badged wheels look even better with this bike... What's your opinion, should I ''re-badge'' or ''de-badge''..???

    As the pics shows the gruppo is Campagnolo super record. The stem/bar is 3T and the saddle is Fizik Antares carbon. The seatpost is the Easton that came with the frameset, but I thought the aluminum head was really ugly and looked out of place on the BMC, so I have painted it black.

    I can't wait for some better weather so I can get out and ride this new dream machine...

    Thanks..! I'm really happy with the build - these BMC bikes are indeed special.

    I have actually ordered new decals for my rear wheel and I will use the time until they arrive to decide if I will ''de-badge'' or ''re-badge''. On my old bike the ZIPP decals was a definitive plus, but here the graphics on the bike itself is really strong, so the stealthy look of the ZIPP's without the decals is actually quite cool.... hmmmm...

    Haydos - why did you change your groupset and wheels?

    Still have the lightweights, I sold the record, bought super record and put that on my colnago eps. Got red for a bargain and wanted to try it out

    Haydos - how do you like the Red so far? I got to try it once on my buddies R3SL, not too bad but I'll still stick with my Campy:D. How do you like your Lightweights? Are they worth the money?

    Red Ergo's are great, rear shifting excellent, brakes excellent, front shifting less so. The Stronglight rings made it better, but I think a Dura Ace FD would make it sweet. Even though, I prefer Super Record functionality and ergo's really.

    LW's - well they are lightweights! Not flash in crosswinds or that aero, but stiff. I think i'd prefer Bora's. (Bora's were more expensive at the time so I settled on LW's). Yes heavier, but more aero and repairable. The Edge's have been great, although I spend most of my time on Neutron Ultra's on the EPS.

    Haydos - I've always thought that the Lightweights were more expensive than the Bora's. I didn't notice the Stronglight chainrings, they are definitely better looking I think. Overall, your Pro Machine is beautiful!

    Here is my 56cm BMC Road Racer. Sram Rival, Zipp 404 wheels + Sram Red Cassette, Ultegra Crankset and Easton EC70 stem.

    Its been a great bike, but i will be upgrading to a ProMachine this spring. The ProMachine is Black/White and will be full Sram Red + the Zipp 404 from my old frame + Easton EC90 crankset + EC90 aero bars + Yokozuna cables. I'm wicked pumped for next season on my hot new wheels.:thumbsup:
