    Here's mine. Im really happy with. My avg mph went up almost 2 mph since I got this bike. My old bike was a very set up GF. The BMC is such a better bike it's crazy. I just upgraded from a XT build to a 10spd x9.

    Yellow.

    My Supertrial 01, all I've done so far is change the grips (stock BMC ones were shabby to say the least) and made it 1x9, oh and the seat, the std seat was bollocks!

    Is good to see more BMC's out there, here in London there just starting to get a name, back in Aus there rare as rocking horse sh&t. The 4stroke is a lovely bike, goes up hill like a rigid! Supertrail goes down hill like a couch heheheheh.

    If you haven't tried it already, it's quite a different experience.

    You have to continuously pedal since there's so much rolling resistance, and the bike wants to go sideways constantly so it takes a lot of your strength to stay off the saddle and try to keep balance.

    It's a workout.

    Fresh snow is best. Once a ton of people have made tracks on it (XC skiers and hikers), it's difficult to ride.

    I was lucky enough to live in Canada for a year when I was young, used to smooth out the snow drifts on the side of the road and launch into the soft stuff on the bmx. There isn't much else to do in Saskatoon! But yes looking forward to a propper snow hit out on the supertrail, I love hitting the trails when there snotty and slippery to fill up my 'oh sh*t' quota.

    Here's a shot of the bike after yesterday in the bog hole known as Epping Forest.

    <a href=http://www.freeimagehosting.net/><img src=http://www.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/560f5d21ff.jpg border=0 alt="Free Image Hosting"></a>

    And yes after winter it will need a full re-build, such is life......

    09 Trailfox

    Here is my new 09 Trailfox. This is a warranty frame from BMC after my 07 frame failed. Gotta give BMC kudos for standing by one of their customers.

    OH YEAH! I love it!

    It's so stable on the rough downhills compared to my '07 TF01.
    I'm sure it's a bit harder on the climb due to the 3 degrees difference in the HA slack but I didn't really notice the difference.

    This bike is definitely a good. I thought I might swap this frame for a new Pivot Mach 5. After test riding the Mach 5, although a very good bike, has a totally different feel than the Trailfox. The Pivot had a very stiff feel. I am sticking with this bike and loving the ride as well. It eats up the rough stuff and still climbs well for a full suspension bike. For as much travel and as smooth as the suspension is, I can't believe the suspension is as solid on the climb as it is.

    My 07 Trailfox. It's an old demo bike that I got earlier this year to replace a hardtail Cannondale. Been slowly swapping out some parts - Elixir 5's, Crossmax SL's, FSA Afterburner 2X9 crankset. It's a very fun ride and perfect for the types of riding I do.

    Love them. Had a crossmax set on my old bike and can say they are lighter and seem to roll a lot smoother.I cant speak on the eastons.
    Glad to hear you like them for your road. I am getting a set for my Look as well.

    Cool. I know on the road they are some of the smoothest wheels I have ridden. They have great bearing/hubs. How many miles/hrs do you have on them?

    Here's my 69'er Fourstroke 02

    Here is my BMC Fourstroke 02, I have converted it to a 69'er. It has been an awesome bike from the start. I got close to 1000 miles on it this year. Great bike, great company.

    Hello BMC owners,
    Because so many of you love your bikes and they get such positive reviews, I've been thinking of buying a BMC for the past year or so.
    I've found a guy in my area selling his '08 Trailfox 02 frame w/ Fox RP23 shock. Size should fit me and he claims its in great shape and well maintained. He wants $350 for it. Should I go for it? Thanks

    MaKn,

    Make sure you check the linkage bearings closely. That year model may still have BMC proprietary bearings and they are fairly pricey. If the bike is in decent to good shape, it's should be a good deal. These bikes are very stiff, they handle great and they are very durable if you take care of them. Check ALL the bearings on the linkage and if they are good and there are no cracks in the frame, you should be good to go. Hope this helps.

    Here is my bmc yes its a suntour epicon its ok for now 200 euro

    Roll Call to owners and prospective owners!-cimg0799.jpg[ATTACH]Roll Call to owners and prospective owners!-cimg0728.jpg[/ATTACH] I only have like 900 euro into the bike I will be upgrading the fork later I just could not afford the fork I wanted after all the other stuff. I must say for AM use and 200 euro the epicon is not bad I would not pay more than that but I can adjust the travle form 100 to 140 or any where in between. Its not good for big hits but small jumps roots and bumps it is fine. I will say I own a fox on my xc bike 100mm and its much better but it was 3 times more money. Its only like 1800 grams so its not super heavy but all in all this bike is great even with the suntour. I love the suspension does not move at all when you pedal feels just as good a a Giant and half the price. Not as sexy as a giant but thats ok oh yeah the paint is ****!! Lucky for me I am an auto painter I am going to slap a coat of good PPG clear coat on it and she will be good maby lol. Another thing I will say is that I am selling my hard tail because the fs bikes are so much better and more controlled I was using my xc bike for trail and am and it just was not that good.
