    cheers. didn't have a good first ride though thanks to two cheap Chinese tubes which both blew on me!

    if it wasn't for my mate giving me another tube, it would of been a nice long walk home.

    will be having words with Evans tomorrow.

  • Just bought a race master and building it now. Groupset to be ordered tomorrow.
    Nice to see other BMC bikes as well as the flagship model pro machine being put on here as well.

    Sorry to here about the tubes, way to ruin your bike honeymoon!!!

    I bet you can't wait to get it together.

    Looks a little small. :wink:

    That's because of the massive TV in the background.

  • I really like the unroundedness of the tubes. It is strangely attractive!! :)

    Very nice. I do like BMCs and orange on bikes.

    I was always told red + orange is a bit of a no no. If that were mine when it came to new tyres time I'd be tempted to take the stickers of the rims and buy one of the following;


    I'd be ordering some Euskatel kit too.

    omg yes

  • having looked at your pics, that BMC is really gorgeous, that orange really suits its as well, makes me want to buy one, if only i had the cash :(

    Nice bike and nice pics, my favourite combination.

    Hopefully will have my own BMC built up soon! How does yours ride?

    Are you into photography as well as cycling? What camera are you using?

    loving the bike, seems to be getting better on each ride.

    i work in the industry but i'm not a pro, just a byproduct of the job. it's a Canon 5D.

  • I keep mine in the livingroom too... nice bike mate!
