BMC’s Impec Lab brings a new type of project to the forefront by unveiling a Special Edition Teammachine SLR01 at Interbike in Las Vegas, NV, this week; a limited edition Teammachine SLR01 frameset with a manually executed laser finish that exemplifies the pure, raw beauty of carbon.


I respond to all who ask me in private many personal considerations on bikes that I personally test, unfortunately you are in many (thanks!) and I can not answer at all. Fortunately, you do all the same questions .... To which I answer gladly:
I would buy this bike and why?
I do not know, maybe yes, has some negative points, but in essence it is a good bike
Defects? Braking underpowered and the crank
What would you change? The crank, brakes and wheels
What upgrades would you do? the wheels
Is this a bike for Gran Fondo? Yes, if you do not hurry to finish
Is this a bike suitable for uphill? Not so much because of the weight
Its performance is competitive? For its category yes, in absolute not.
What alternatives are there to this model? Alternatives are always endless, here a list of some direct competitors:
Bianchi Vertigo
Cannondale Evo Standard
Specialized Tarmac
What is the main advantage of BMC compared to direct competitors?

The build quality of the frame

I want the bike with the best price/performance ratio, is BMC okay?

It's possible to find better ...


We have already talked about the new BMC SLR03 frame, the bike being tested is assembled with a mix of Shimano 105/Tiagra, Shimano R500 wheels, aluminum components and saddle Fi'zi:k.
