Prospective BMC purchase

Postby elude » Tue Apr 17, 2012 11:37 am

Hello everyone,

I was considering putting some money down for a BMC RM01 2012 after seeing this sale price: ... /102015858

Anyone have one of these bikes? or have any critiques about the parts/price?

Thanks :D

Pretty good price for a 2012. I prefer the colour scheme of the 2011 though, but thats personal preference. CE may still have 2011 RM01s for crazy cheap prices if you're interested.

I have a 2011 RM01. Love it to bits. Stiff as a board and a decent climber too. The bike feels great descending at high speed, as if it is on rails.

Take the bike for a test ride first, its a decent amount of coin to shell out on something.

That's a beauty. I have an older Team Machine and it's killer.

Yea must say I'm quite tempted, heard many good things about the RM01, stiff with a reasonably comfortable ride!

I've got a 2011 RM01 and love it. The harder you thrash it the better it goes. Very stiff though especially if you are on the light side - about 4 hours is my limit on it. If you can afford it get the SLR01 as it's more comfortable and since the pros use it must be just as stiff where it matters. However for a cost saving you won't regret the RM01. Fantastic descender as well, really confidence-inspiring.

I bought the frameset and built it up with Shimano.
