    Let's see your BMC!
    So I've been looking around at all the pictures of your nice-shiny-beautiful BMC's, and frankly I've ran out of pictures to look at so I want some more.

    So post some pictures of your BMC for everyone to enjoy!

    sweet bike! Two things though, get an ec90 seatpost and cut that steer down

    Just changed my wheels to an American Classic 58. I was going to get the Zipp 404 but I was convinced that these wheels are stiffer and has better hubs than the Zipps. I removed most of the stickers to give it a cleaner look. :D Hope you guys like it!

    Miiles - I know! I just can't find the right set of cages for this bike. Thanks for the compliment. :)

    New Pro Machine
    I picked up my new SLC01 this morning. As you can see it's an '08 Blue Pro Machine, 90 Campy Chorus, Fulcrum Racing 1's and Deda stem and bars.

    The orange Contis were a freebie from a mate who picked them up as a prize from a race. Not sure about the orange, but it's kind of growing on me. May put on another paid of black Contis I've got on my other bike.

    Good to see everyone else's BMC pics up - thanks!:thumbsup:

    I've already broken both the original seatpost binder bolts from not paying attention and over-tightening when I was taking the seatpost out a lot for traveling with the bike.

    Being previously used to Traditional (round) bend bars, or the old style Anatomical, these bars are a very welcome change. (3T Ergonova)

    I have more recently gotten a set of Zipp 303s and Neuvation C50s,... so I will probably take a few pictures with each set on in the near future. As you can see below with those Carbones, deep wheels look good on this frame!

    I will be curious to hear what you think about the ride. I now have over 500 miles on mine. It's a very fun ride!:thumbsup:

    I like the way it rides a lot... For reference, I've owned the following:
    - 1984 Trek, Low end, Steel
    - Cannondale CAD3
    - Scatante Aluminum
    - Surley LHT
    - Colnago Master X Light

    In terms of comfort, It's on par with the Colnago (which is a stiff steel frame) and the LHT (which is a different type of bike, so not fair to compare..). Granted, I have different seatpost, saddle, bars and stem on all the bikes... I have used the FLITs on both the Colnago and the BMC.

    It's definitely more comfortable than the CAD3 was, and I don't notice it to be any less stiff..

    I like them. The rear wheel did get pretty out of true after only 500 or so miles... I got it trued at the shop, and then the weekend after I swerved off course to avoid a crash and jumped up on the curb. I hit the curb some with the rear wheel, though I don't remember how much (it was 2nd to last lap of race,... heat of the moment and all).... and now it needs to be trued again... Not unridable, but about a 1/4" of travel.

    I haven't weighed them but they do feel as light as advertised... They feel a bit stiffer than the other aluminum clincher wheels that I've ridden.. (Mavix CXP 20s,.. 33s,...and Speedcifics)

    So, they are cheap and light as advertised...

    In terms of durability,... I have a pair or wheels built by Mike Garcia that are heavier (1,500gm), I can't remember how much they cost... I've ridden these a couple thousand miles. They are more comfortable than the FLITs, and I've never had to true them.

    Still, when it comes to Clinchers, you're hard pressed to find some that are cheaper and lighter than the FLITs. I don't regret buying them.

    Beautiful machines!

    I am looking to upgrade my ride - recreational / centuries / touring

    I have ridden Cervelo RS, Pinarello Prince, Pinarello FP6

    How does the Pro Machine compare? Too much bike for me?

    I received the frameset today from Competitive Cyclists, and I just finished building it up tonight! Man it looks hot!

    Surprisingly it doesn't feel as heavy as I thought it would be; at least by just picking it up. I will weigh it to get the exact weight.
