    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.

    They were very helpful and I give them two thumbs up. Funny thing, due to the safety laws in Switzerland, the bicycle arrived with two white spoke reflectors, six orange ones, a normal white reflector one, a headlight, a tail light, and a bell. I'm gonna look like a Christmas tree at night with those on.

    Sounds like the bike came packaged as it would have come from BMC to the store, right? Never built up in the shop?

    I'd 3m it up too, you did the entire bike??? Don't blame you, looking like I'm getting the 2012 scott 900 29er, fearing the chips dings etc. About $2,900 for a bicycle?!?

    BMC sent it with headset and bottom bracket installed. Rear brake and front derailleur were installed All cables (minus front brake) and chain were already set up. Handlebar had everything clamped to it. I had to hunt down some clamps for the X9 shifters because I needed to loose the Avid Matchmaker clamps since I'm using XT brakes.. I also changed the saddle since I'm saddle sore prone (had to have surgery a couple of years ago because of a bad case) and needed something more forgiving than the Tundra 2.

    Mad keen for one of these, just need to figure out how to get one in Australia without playing the $6.5k that the only place advertising them wants...

    Totally unreasonable give the 3.6k some US sellers have sold them for.

    Has anyone looked up the bike on the BMC website? It's now properly listed (I hadn't looked in a couple of months) and comes with an XO/X9, XX, or XTR option. I guess they expect you to be stronger if you get the XX. The double chainring goes from 24/38 (X0) to 26/39 (XX). I'm glad I have the 24 for our mountains out here.

    I got mine used, so i paid a bit less than the $5.5k price tag.

    2nd ride on the TEO1 today in some xc trails, really impressed with the climbing this thing did; even got complements from two cx riders who watched and didnt think i would summit a couple ridiculously steep climbs (i like to think it was more my legs from frequenting Mt. Diablo on the roadie) = p

    1st ride consisted of technical descents the FS guys love to ride; it handled well with homemade chain guides to keep the chain on the chainring the entire time. Have a MRP 1x currently on and a Bionicon chain guide on its way

    I wanted one but at the time (maybe a month ago) there were none available or they were at full msrp with a short wait. Now it seems availability is better and there are some sales. At $3300 or whatever bicycleindyoutfitters (apologies for butchering their name, they are a great company to deal with) would've snagged my money! Having said that....

    I ended up buying a season-clearance 2012 Scott Scale Expert frame and putting a SID 29 RCT3 fork, Cheap Chinese Carbon 30mm wide rims, full XTR 2x10 and a Thomson Masterpiece 27.2 with a Wheels Mfg shim. I've never ridden the BMC but read about its suppleness; guess my Scott's SDS rear stays combined with the setback Thomson is good enough for me. I'm in it for a pretty darn cheap price, about $2400 thanks to eBay and Performance bicycle team member points.

    But that BMC sure is gorgeous and rare!!!

    That bmc is sexy...reserved is probably higher than i'd want to pay. I did put in a bid for it the first time around and didn't win.

    Now there's an 2011 S-work that's my size as well...geeezzz...they are killing me.

    Both are out of my price range (well, what i want to pay)

    s-works vs bmc, bmc vs. s-works, hmmmm

    haven't gotten much work done lately.

    Hi, looking at this bike, checking their sizing online I am not sure what to get size wise, M or L, I am 5'11" with a 30.5 inseam, 32/33 sleeves, not sure what my torso is, wondering what size people my height are riding, M or L and how it fits
    thanks

    I would go with M I'm 5'11" myself with 31.1 inseam- currently riding Orbea M with similar st and tt lengths.

    btw one of our biggest LBS recently became BMC dealer and promises next month there will be TE01 29 demo bikes available. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try it because on paper this one looks like perfect bike with perfect M size geo for me and those short chainstays. And they say this one will be available as frame set as well Will cost exactly as Scott RC frameset over here.

    Mojo Troll, I am 5'11" with 30.5 inseam and 32/33 sleeves, I rode a medium several times and it actually felt just a tad small for me so I would recommend you try medium before you even think about getting a small; they use a really short stem 70mm as part of their bike geometry and they recommend you make that work if possible instead of putting on a longer steam, hope that helps

    I'm 5'9" (I think I'm a 30.5" inseam) and glad I went with the medium vs the small. I was hesitant because of the ETT, but decided to go with the recommended sizing. Had I gone with a small I would have had to get a longer stem putting me more over the front wheel and thus changing the bike's handling.

    My TE01. Fun ride. Climbs great and it does roll over the rough stuff a lot better then my 26'er hardtail. Doesn't take off as fast, but the larger wheels do roll you along on the flats better. It's good stuff!

    Thanks. The wheels roll great, but not as stiff as I'd like. It's my first 29'er and the bike came with Easton EA70 XCT wheels, which I didn't ride on this bike and selling on ebay. So I'm comparing them to my 26'er industry nine enduro hubs with Arch rims. They're no way as stiff as those wheels. Maybe it's inherent of 29'er wheels to be a little "flexy" due to the size because when I pedal hard out of the saddle I can feel the wheels give a little. Also, the rear hub is loud. A lot louder then kings or crank brothers I've had in the past. A part from the stiffness, the wheels do roll well and have quick engagement with new rear hub design. Some folks who own the wheels say they've developed a little play in the hubs. I haven't experienced that with mine, hopefully I won't. If I were to go out and buy a new set of wheels again, I'd probably go with I9s or Kings.

    I don't see why not. You would either need to find a magic gear combo/half link setup or run a tensioner.

    So at 5'8" what size would yall reccomend. I tend to prefer shorter TTs so I was thinking small, but figured I'd ask.

    Everyone still liking theirs?
    WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

    I'm the same height and ride a small. Steering was a bit twitchy with the 70mm stem so I switched it out to a 90mm and it's much more stable. I'll try a 100mm and see how that goes. All around a great bike - climbs well and runs over bumpy stuff with ease. Not as good turning corners then a 26'er, but that might change with bigger tires or playing around with tire pressure. Good luck!

    I have te01 frame, and I have problem that derailleur hanger is not aligned with dropout, instead it is a little bit in front. Because of that, my wheel is not centered, it is centered in left for 3-4mm, and when I stand up the tire scratches in frame. Does anybody have the same problem, what is solution for that?

    My hanger and dropout are in line. But I have noticed that if you look at the chain stay clearance. The non drive side seems to have less clearance. I think this is because the stays are asymmetric. The non drive side is thicker and the drive side is thinner where the tire tread passes. At first I thought the rear end was out of alignment or the wheel was not dished properly. But after checking my wheel dish in another frame ,Niner air 9 carbon, it was fine and centered in that frame. This is when I started measuring the bmc and that's where I realized the chain stays were asymmetric. You can also look at the tire alignment with the seat tube this will also help confirm if the wheel is centered. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your help.

    Currently I'm waiting for new hangers, I hope that will solve the problem.

    Our dealer said that first we will change hanger, and then we will contact bmc, if it won't be ok.

    that's good to hear. Could you post a pic of how the hanger is different? and the tire clearance at the chain stay when you have some time?
