    I rode the new BMC at Sea Otter. The tube shapes are really interesting. The chain stays are massive. I liked the way the seat tube gets wider closer to the bottom. It was nicely specked too. Best part was chatting it up about the bike with some of the BMC race team guys as they were pre riding the race course on Thursday.

    Not better but more memorable that on two separate occasions BMC team riders noticed that I was on the same bike as theirs, slowed down as they were about to pass me, and commented on the bike. They were excited about the bike and shared that excitement. The younger of the two is on the BMC development team and finished 7th in his CAT 1 age group.

    Did a google search, that appears to be in the Gods country around Monterey??? Amazing country. We go once in a while (from Miami) to watch the MotoGP races and love that area...sucks getting passed, but at least you got props for your ride.

    I'm a novice, well, intermediate, just started but considering age and experience I do well, but def a rookie. However, I know there are guys whopping me on their 29ers, I found the HT but I'm nervous to go to HT from FS....here's what I found, what do you think???

    And this is what I ride now (pretty comfortable ride; I'm 44 yo, so like to sit my happyass on seat quite a bit)
    http://www.gtbicycles.com/2012/bikes...012-sensor-1-0

    2010 model which is very comprabile just maybe a few things here and there. Hate to try the switch and not like the bike, but seems like EVERYONE loves ther 29ers! Concerned on the HT though. I am not racing (yet), but still like to have nice toy that makes me happy!

    Hardtail 29er is best for the type of riding I do. XC not too technical and lots of fire roads. A hardtail is more efficient and lighter, but an aluminum one may beat you up a bit. That's why I like carbon. For around $3K you can get a brand new carbon Scott Scale 29er. The components won't be XO but still very good.

    sweet. If I had to guess, I'll likely be buying the scott's fs. I'm 45 this year and want that lil extra cush for the tush! Probably a bit cheaper too. But now that I saw the cannondale at my lbs, may hold off. Thing is nasty. Lefty scalpel w cf frame. oooh so sweet 29er. Heck, I change my mind so frequent. Meanwhile, I snapped my chain 10 minutes into my ride today. Took me 45 min to get everything ready, 1 hour to get to bike park, and then that 10 minutes later. Wasn't pissed, just bummed at loss of time vs no workout.

    Man, the MTB has changed my physique totally, I"M HOOKED FOREVER!

    No real-world tests online, just a lot of pre-release info. Anyone have anything else? Competitive Cyclist does not have it on their site yet....

    Found that, CC does a good job hyping up every product they sell. At least they have a 60 day return policy if the frame or bike doesn't blow your socks off.

    A couple of my teammates are riding the TE01 29er and absolutely loving it. Super light, super stiff and very fast. I can tell you that BMC certainly have the 29er geometry dialed, those bikes handle awesome.

    Shopping around for a frame only was told by two large shops that contrary to what has been printed online BMC will not sell the frame only. And both shops said that's too bad because the oem build kit, while nice, is not up to snuff for riders who will be buying this level of bike.

    Did they follow BMC's recommended sizing or did they size down? I'm 176 cm (5' 9½") and they recommend I ride the 19" with a 24.2" effective top tube. That just seems big.

    Bicycle Outfitter Indy have a few of these on sale. It's not listed on their website but they sent out a BMC sales email a couple of weeks ago and it listed it one in each size. Since the price seems reasonable now for this component package I think I'll pull the trigger one.

    Thanks. Just ordered one. A store out here was supposed to get me one at cost but we found out yesterday that the Canadian distributor is not planning on bringing any BMC mountain bikes into the country, only road bikes.

    I decided to follow their strange sizing recommendation and ordered a medium since a couple of reviews said the sizing worked for them.

    I went with a size small. I'm 5'7.5 and normally ride a size M. How tall are you? From what I know about the geometry, the top tube length sounds about right for me. Wrenchscience.com have the bike on their website and it shows the geometry of the sizes.

    I'm 5'9½" and would normally have gone with a small given the geometry (loooong top tube) with any other company, but BMC recommends that I go with a medium for my height. Don't forget to register it on the internet. BMC extends the warranty to 5 years if you do.

    Give Bicycleoutfittersindy.com a call (BMC Teamelite TE01 29 X.0/X.9 Team Red Small ). They had all three sizes in stock and on sale last week even though the web site said they were out of stock.

    There's a size small on ebay right now. It's pretty sweet looking with the enve wheels and xtr upgrades.

    Got mine 2 days ago and still covering the frame with 3m protection tape that I got from the auto detailer. Yes I know, I'm being anal. But I did that with my HiFi Pro 4 seasons ago and it still looks great. Next up is switching the XO brakes with the XT brakes that I purchased (anybody want to buy an unused set of 2012 XO brakes?) and then I get to ride it. Did I mention I can't stand Avid brakes?

    I did get to ride on the rear Easton 70 wheel today since I'm having a new wheel built up for my HiFi Pro. It's weird having absolutely no sound from the hub when I'm freewheeling. My favourite hub (Chris King on my Moots YBB 26er) sounds like an angry swarm of bees and I like that sound.

    I ordered it from bicycleoutfittersindy.com because BMC mountain bikes aren't available in Canada.
