2015 SLR01 "Shark" IMO best all round bike ever built.


That'd be it! :D :D

I've got a '14 SLR01, and was super envious of that colourset when it came out......

I still rate the 2014 colourway. Much better than later models

Same post as bike gallery but here it is!
Three years ago I had to relocate to Hong Kong where road cycling isnt exactly safe, so I had to sell my CAAD10 and give up cycling for the time being.
Now that i've moved back to Melbourne, I can get back on the saddle!
Here is my new BMC TimeMachine TMR02.

Went on 40km ride the other day and had a blast! However my avg speed was waaaaaay lower than what it was 3 years ago :( Time to get my ass on the saddle!

The stem will soon be flipped and lowered by one or two spacers.

Deciding on stem and handlebars...
Any thoughts?

Dimii - Wilson cant be the Tacker he just got back from his carpet shop in HK. :D piss take.. I recogised hie bike whilst I was doing the boring boule roll,.

Remind me you are a 53cm

has to be a neg 10 stem 120 or 130.
I still run my Cadel Easton TKO bars ...good luck finding a set and theyre heavy 260 ish g for 40cm but if I was to do something else;

Giant contact SLR aero ( great shape but heavy 240g) hidden cables cool but fiddly go etap.
FSA K force compact ( ovalish tops 40cm at hoods 42 flair) circa 200g

Zipp SC SL80 nice shape...weighty 250g but alloy strong
Zipp Contour sub 180g nice shape but the 85mm reach affect handling for some

But watch out with the Giant bars, not many lights will fit on those bars. I have those bars on my Giant TCR Advanced SL1. I haven't done the hidden cables bit yet, as it means redoing the shift cables and brake cables (extra bother when they don't need doing yet).

Extreme bars would be Selcof:

Those are looking great (I've seen them on a bike) but very heavy. Do those really improve the aero as much as they hurt the weight?

And for practical purposes, most lights will not work on those.

I'd agree on alloy bars.

^^ true that. Garmin mounts dont fit either. I had to fork out for one of those exe Fetha ones..( curse my anal retentiveness for neat bikes). I love the hidden cables. Such a nice short reach and attractive drop also.
