BMC RoadMachine 2020 Version



Apologies for the quick pic. I'll need to get some proper ones soon.

Thanks to Isaac Neff at Neff Cycle Service for putting together such an awesome machine.

It's a BMC RoadMachine (2020 edition) with new Force eTap AXS 12 speed and Red crank/Quarq.

Isaac built up some Enve AR 4.5 with King hubs, and oh man they're sweeeet. Great wheels! I'm running Vittoria Corsa 28mm on them. This combination rolls over everything so well with no compromises when full effort out of the saddle or during hard cornering. It's just amazing to me how planted the entire bike feels.

I got it out last evening for a hard group ride and I was blown away with how awesome it is. All the reviews I've read about this new-gen version are correct.

AR 4.5s are incredible. And I love the subtle branding on the BMC. Congrats!

The Corsa Controls are great tires. I used the 30 mm version at Belgian Waffle Ride this year and was very happy with how they held up. The rear sustained a pretty sizable sidewall slash and didn't blow out.

The cotton casing on these seem to give a much more supple ride than the Schwalbe Ones. I used the Ones for the past 2 seasons, but have since converted to Corsas due to the ride quality. I have the regular Corsa version on the new BMC mostly because the Corsa Control wasn't in stock at the time I was getting my bike assembled.

CK sells an XDR driver for their R45 hubs.

Nice....

I really do like my Enve 4.5AR as well.. so much so I'm kinda tempted to sell my Enve 5.6 so I can have 2 pairs... One for the gravel rig and one for the aero road bike.... problem is limited tire choices for the road.

Thanks, folks! Now that I've logged some miles on it I can say once again... It's great! No complaints whatsoever. Hoping the Wisconsin fall weather gives me a few more excellent weeks of weather to enjoy aboard it.
