    Amazing bike! I used to hate the look of BMCs but they've grown on me now!

    Thanks guys, BMC's are rare on the roads, hence me reasoning getting one, does ride like a dream, descending into Llangynog at 50 MPH, steady as a rock.

    You most likely will not come across another one here in the UK while out riding, which is good. Common as a toilet in Switzerland and Austria though, for good reason!

    Lovely looking bike!
  • Neil BuckleyNeil Buckley Posts: 334
    I may be wrong but I believe its the only 2013 SLR in the UK at the moment. I would love to know the font on the TeamMachine logo so I can get some stickers made!

    The team machine text? That looks to be a light variation of Helvetica Neue. Not sure about the BMC logo. I doubt it is a font, or if it is it might have been a private commission. Likely to be another font which has been monkeyed with.

    edit - lovely bike :D

    Yep the TeamMachineSLR01 text, that's also the text they use for the rider logos

    Looks like a weight of Neue Extended Light. Check here if you're interested. You can enter your sample text in the top.

    Lovely. I definitely want. Is it comfy ?
  • robbo2011robbo2011 Posts: 1,017
    Yes they are comfortable. I'm very happy with my 2012 model with sram red.

    The new SLR01 has just been launched, so may be worth waiting. Alternatively, you might be able to get a good deal on the current model
  • Neil BuckleyNeil Buckley Posts: 334
    Very comfy did a few big rides already. Did a 60 mile ride with over a 1000 m climbing at 18 mph climbs great goes down hill great.

    Go for it, there's very little BMCs on the road, I've got it on good authority the 2014 model doesn't ride different to the 2013 SLR and the weight is pretty much the same, go for it you won't regret it.

    The fact that you have to buy them from Evans probably scares potential buyers off.
  • Paul 8vPaul 8v Posts: 5,458
    I've only ever seen one out and about, definitely growing on me.

    Why? buy it then take it home, sort it out yourself.

    Lovely bike.
    Weight: 6.1kg

    Is that a verified 6.1kg complete how it rides with computer, cages etc?
  • spasypaddyspasypaddy Posts: 5,731
    thats a lovely bike but i cant believe the 6.1kg weight... seems too light considering its alu rimmed clinchers and a powertap...

    wheels (using carbon clinchers which are lighter and the g3 hub which again is lighter) + tyres is 2kg...
    2.2kg groupset weight...

    and a weight weenie here has it down to 6.18kg...

    My SRAM red equipped SLR01 (57cm) with the Easton EA90 SLX wheelset is 6.8kg (without bottle cages etc.) so I also doubt the 6.1kg figure. And the OP is using a powertap.
  • milesemilese Posts: 1,233
    My 2011 model with red and the original Easton wheels is 6.57kg (14.49lbs) with DA pedals, cages, Garmin mount.

    Standard except for

    Pro race 4s
    Conti supersonic tubes
    Velo plugs
    PX Ti skewers
    Bike Ribbon Spunga bar tape
    Fizik Arione CX saddle

    It's possible that there is some error in my weighing though as I did it by standing on digital bathroom scales and subtracting my bodyweight from the weight of me holding the bike.

    Milese probably has a more accurate weight as he is quoting to 2 decimal places. Not that it makes much real world difference...
  • YossieYossie Posts: 2,600
    Nice bike but not 6.1kg with that spec I'm afraid: pretty heavy everything throughout. 7kg or thereabouts I'd say, but hey - its cool and you're out riding so who cares?
