Here for sale is my beloved 2009 BMC Racemaster SLX01 frameset, its 58cm.
Its a great stiff frameset thanks to the aluminium bottom bracket trident, and comfort is ensured with the carbon arc. Its 50/50 alu/carbon I think, a real efficient & fast frameset, never raced, and not done that many miles. Also has internal cabling which finishes the whole frame off... nice!
The BMC GF02 105 is BMC's take on the endurance/sportive bike category, joining the likes of Specialized and Trek in offering a more comfortable bike which can also be raced. Its carbon big brother – the GF01 – was developed with the northern classics in mind and has been raced there with success under the likes of Thor Hushovd and Taylor Phinney. Evidently, the race pedigree is there, but what remains to be seen is how this translates to the cheaper aluminium framed 02.
