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.
