    Very nice. The first BMC I've "seen" with campy.

    It needs more red though ;)
    Red bikes are the fastest.

    That BMC looks fantastic!

    I'm sure it rides just as awesome as it looks! Enjoy

    Cheers

    If red bikes are the fastest then I reckon I have the right amount of red for the speed I generate i.e. respectable, but nothing to write home about :wink:

    Marmite. No doubt striking but for me it would look so much better if the line of the rear stay continued into the superfluous little triangle underneath the top tube, like it did on the GT mountain bikes they copied the idea from.

    If there was more red, it'd go faster. You'd better get the rattle cans out :lol:

    On larger frame sizes, it lines up (that is true of the Roadracer (SL) range, at least).
    Red bikes are the fastest.

    love it (though prefer it with the original wheels)

    Looks great. Like it's screaming to be ridden up the biggest hill you can find.

    I'm not the biggest fan of BMCs but that's really rather nice, the whole red and matt black theme works well, and the fact that it's Campag is even nicer!

    It's just a hill. Get over it.
