So if you thought the 29er thing was just going to go away quietly, think again.
Specialized is going to town with 29er's this season and here is how it stands.
Kicking it off i the Hardrock range, entry level 29er disc at $599 and sport disc at $749. So even the kids can play.
Next up is the Rockhopper comp at $1199 and the expert at $1499. Good price point for a 3x9 drivetrain to get the more serious ride onto a new 29er.
Last alloy of the hardtail's is the Stumpjumper Comp at $2499. 3x10 and Rock Shox reba forks give a great mid level package. Or for a bit more bling the Stumpjumper comp carbon at $3999.
Full carbon hardtail frame with a sram 2x10 drivetrain and reba front forks. Nice
Onto the duel suspension bikes and the Camber elite 29er has 100mm of front and rear travel, 3x9 drive train and comes in at $2799. Great value for a duely.
The ever popular Epic range gets 3 modelsof 29er. The comp at $3999 with 3x10 and reba's. The comp carbon at $4499 with a carbon front triangle, reba's and 2x10 drivetrain. And the Expert carbon. Carbon front. 142mm rear. Sram X0 2x10 drivetrain and tuned reba forks. all for $5999.

Stumpjumper HT carbon at $8499. Sub 9kg rocket ship. Yes, less than 9 kilograms people.
Epic S-Works 29er at $9999. Carbon everything. Frame, wheels, bar, post, cranks etc. This is as high as you go in 29er duel suspension bikes.

Now get out and go riding......

BMC RM01 Race Machine update.

I have been watching the stats on my blog over the last few weeks and the number 1 search term if for the new BMC Race Machine RM01. So here is a more in depth spec list of what you can expect in the Australian model.
The frame will be very similar in design to the very popular SLR01 with more stiffness built into the seat stays, BB shell and the front fork. We will receive the colour scheme above and not the 'Gulf Porsche" colour going to europe.
Sizing as follows. 47, 50, 53, 55, 57 and 60 cm frames.
Front crankset is a Sram Red BB30 item with matching Sram Red front and rear derailleur and shifters. Brakes are Sram Force, cassette is Sram PG 1070 with the ratio 11-26.Wheels will be the ever reliable Easton EA70 and be shod with Conti Ultra Race tyres. Handlebar is a carbon EC70 and stem an alloy EA70 item. Saddle is Selle Italia SL XC.
Geometry is below.
We have been given an estimated RRP of $6559.00 for a complete bike and $3899.00 for a frameset. This may change with the fluctuating dollar but my best guess is these will be the prices to expect.
As with all BMC bikes numbers will be limited and first orders are due in November. Pre orders are welcome.
All of the specs and pics can now be seen on the new BMC website.

Specialized Camber FSR pro

New for 2011 is the Camber platform. At 120mm of travel it slots in between the Epic (100mm)and the Stumpjumper (140mm) and is aimed squarely at the trail rider.
This range offers by far the best bang for your buck in the Specialized dual suspension range and the Camber FSR pro is likely to be one of the best value bikes available in Australia period.
M4 hydroformed tubes, sealed cartrige bearing pivots, command post cable routing with bolt on guides.
Fox F120rl fork up front, Custom tuned Triad 2 shock with 3 position 'on the fly' switch, 1)lock-out, 2)open, 3)pro-pedal. Sram S-2200 2x10 Carbon double crankset. XTR M980 rear mech. Avid Elixir R-SL brakes with rotor sizes 160/185 mm for small and medium and 185/203mm for large and X/large.
DT X420sl rims and 2Bliss ready "the captain" tyres.
All of this for an amazing $3499.00.
I hear you say you want more.
Any one that buys one of these will get a free Mariposa caffe-latex tubeless conversion kit.

Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er

So after my 2 days of intense initiation into the Specialized family and a long look at the huge dealer book I thought it was time to share some of my fav's for the coming season.
The Rockhopper Comp 29er is probably not too high on most people's list but I think it will be quite popular with some.
Firstly at $1199.00 it is right on the money for any entry level rider or someone looking at a second (or 3rd or 4th etc) bike to do their own comparison to a 26 inch.
Secondly it can be easily converted to a single speed as it has a neat set of sliding dropouts.
5 sizes from 15.5 inch through to 23 inch means everyone can have one. Sure it's only got an entry level spec with Alivio shift gear, but the custom tuned Suntour fork up front and hydro discs at this price point are a winner.
Due in store the 2nd week of September.

New BMC SLR01 on the floor...

Well it has finally land at Cyclic Bikes.
The new SLR01 Team Machine from BMC. And what glorious machine it is.
Xavier is the proud owner of our fist complete built 57 cm that came in at 6.6kg out of the box.
We have a 55 cm in carbon and white on the floor now and more sizes to follow.
Some of the things that make this new bike something special are, besides the ridiculous low weight, the sensational finish, Sram Red group with BB30, the ultra stiff front fork and without doubt the most elegant seat post design ever.
I can see plenty of sub 6 kg bikes being built around this frameset for sure.
The price of $8950 is a steel for what you will receive from this bike. It is most definitely not just another carbon frame with a bunch of top line components added to achieve the title of flagship. As with any pedigree the heart of this bike is the frame and the technology applied at all points.
We also have alternative packages available for those with a taste for Campagnolo or Shimano.
