    My first carbon bike is a BMC slr01

    Hello folks,

    Nice to meet you all.

    Ive just purchased a 55" BMC slr01 2013 frame with the Ultegra Di2 kit. It was on special offer so I took the plunge.

    I now need to build it up. Ill require an 11spd crankset, saddle, handlebars and some wheels.

    In the meantime does anyone on here have the same setup? Any advice.

    I would especially like to see some pictures.

    regards

    Now that you're had the bike for a couple of weeks how do you like it? Did it live up to your expectations?

    Hi there.

    Ive raced a few times on it now and had a few long billy club runs.
    I can confirm it rides amazing. The most noticeable feature of this bike is its acceleration. Step in the pedals and the back wheel feels like it's got a motor on it.
    Its also super comfy. Although I am riding 25mm tyres to help with comfort.
    I have a 20 training loop. That I use to assist in checking any kind of improvements I might have made. I'm averaging 1mph consistently over this loop and I don't feel half as tired doing it. I'll easily average 22.5mph on this loop by the end of the summer compared to my average of 20ish mph last year.

    Thanks for your review on the your first experience. I'm looking into the 2015 SLR01 frameset myself and all reviews tend to lean to the same opinion, the bike wants to move.

    How happy are you with the Ultegra Di2? Is it sufficient? Why didn't you go for the Dura-Ace?
