    New to us SLC01 !

    Picked up a real nice SLC01 a month or so back to add to the collection and finally got to give it to my wife for her birthday the other day, also picked an almost new set of Fulcrum 3's for it. Should have it on the road for her in a few weeks as just ordered up a 6800 group from Ribble, she can't wait.

    I have the same frame in a large size. Very comfortable. The stock fork is a little soft for me at 200# but for your wife should be fine. Lucky lady.

    The chainstays come in very tight to the wheel, and with Campy Neutrons which have an asymmetrical rear wheel, the NDS spokes would brush the chainstay.
    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    Well that didn't take long to get bit by the wife's new to us BMC, casually started keeping an eye out for a red one in a 55 to match hers and found this part naked one, I love the look of some naked carbon bikes and this one really caught my eye. Found it on ebay and was able to pick it up in person from a couple that had a few BMC's. The frameset is how I bought it and will build up with 6800 Ultegra, The second picture is when the previous owner had it built with campy.
