BMC Uses Nanotube Technology

Gizmodo picked up the lasted review from Pez Cycling of the new BMC SLC01. The bike that weighs the equivalent of five cellphones (assuming a Razr) made the Gadget news blog because of the use of the small strands of carbon fiber.

As for Pez, he has a very extensive review of the BMC. It is a bit biased as it is for personal use.

I admit to being enamoured of BMC bikes, my personal ride for 2005 was their SLT01 Team Machine – regaled in full Phonak colors [and stolen from my garage!... Tech Ed].

Glad you got a replacement Pez! I was never near your garage… not that anyone was asking me, but just to be sure…

Seriously though, the review at Pez has some great insight into BMC’s development using Carbon fiber, and how they shaved 10 ounces off of last years model. Hint: they went to an all-carbon frame by removing the aluminum lugs.
