Builder: BMC

Material:  Carbon

Riders Goal: This project began with the question:  Can a disc cross bike be built up with clinchers and weigh under 17 lbs with pedals?

Key Components

  • Brand new, completely re-designed BMC CX01 cyclocross frameset, est weight around 1100 grams
  • DT Swiss Carbon Clincher RC 38 Spline C DB wheels for disc brake, est weight around 1390 grams
  • SRAM CX1/RED22 kit
  • Dugast Rhino tubular cyclocross tires, all black sidewall

Five Reasons Why We Love This Bike

  • The acceleration and ride feel is patterned after one of our favorite bikes, the BMC SLR01 road bike
  • BMC designed the bike with relevant, modern cyclocross geometry
  • Make no mistake, this machine is light and fast
  • BMC integrated the front disc housing INSIDE the fork leg for cleaner routing
  • Finished weight:  15.5 lbs with tubulars, no pedals.   16 lbs, 10 oz with clinchers and pedals
