I’ve had this since June 2017, but it’s been a while upgrading this to the spec, it now sits at a decent spec.

I used to have a BMC time machine tmr01 and it’s pretty clear this is as fast but more practical having simpler direct mount brakes and a tidier bottom bracket area. Better clearances mean I can ride 28mm Tyres though I prefer 25mm tyres.

In terms of riding this is a fast bike all round, it climbs nicely, descends brilliantly, and corners well. The dura ace kit works impeccably.c10%202_zpsww20tfcr.png

    That’s stunning.
  • Really nice looking bike.

    Saddle looks a bit weird though i.e. v small? What size frame is it please?

    the saddle is a romin evo which is around 15mm shorter than a romin, it allows for slightly more movement compared to a Romin, which kind of get you to sit in the bike, if that makes sense. frame size is medium.

    That is something else. Kudos.
  • Really, really nice.

    Only criticism would be the use of photobucket to host so it has those gaudy watermarks over your pictures,
  • philbar72philbar72 Posts: 2,228
    yeah, noticed that, will probably move over to another one soon as its making the bike look bad. :)
  • I am in the process of sorting out one of these in Matt Black/Red.
    Going to be Dura-Ace Di2. Wheels are Fulcrum Speed 40.
    Will post up some pic's on this thread when done if that is OK with you.
  • philbar72philbar72 Posts: 2,228
    that's ok with me.
  • Time to get this put together.

    Cracking job on your bike. Serious bike envy. Lovely build!!!
    Constantly trying to upgrade my parts.It is a long road ahead as things are so expensive for little gain. n+1 is always the principle in my mind.
  • Here is mine, I don't want to take over the thread so please no comments on weeds/cranks/spacers etc.

  • Move the camera a bit higher and level the stones so its not pointing downhill!

    Awesome setup though. Those dropped seatstays are growing on me, especially that little aero part where it meets the seattube.
  • philbar72philbar72 Posts: 2,228
    looks like its going to fall downhill. everything matches though Alan. looks good.

    You really are a class one troll aren't you, have you ever had anything useful to say or are you just getting your post count up??

    Strong reply. Brake cable looks perfect to me. Any shorter and it would be too stetched when the brake was clamped shut.
    I'm guessing the guy who said it's "too short" has no idea about the exit route of the cable.

    A beautiful bike by the way, stunning.
