Cadel Evans won the 2011 Tour de France on the then-current BMC SLR01. This BMC Teammachine SLR02 Ultegra Bike is the very much the match of that bike, but is much more accessible thanks to the advance of technology.

The frame, weighs in at 950g with all the hardware in the 54. It is as stiff and almost as vertically compliant. It rides almost exactly the same as the new SLR01, thanks to sharing a geometry. Owing to lower-modulus carbon-fiber employed, there is more of it, and that’s how the weight goes up. The top of the seat tube is rounded so that a simpler round seat post can be inserted. BMC specifies their 18mm offset compliancepost as part of their Tuned Compliance Concept. More of that concept can be seen in the slender seat stays and tapered fork legs which help damp road vibrations before they get to the main triangle, which is highlighted with a dramatically tapered 1 1/8″ to 1 1/2″ steerer tube, an oversized down tube, BB86 bottom bracket shell, and tall chain stays. While it might not matter, know that the frame is set up with Dual Transmission Integration, meaning if you ever want to upgrade to electronic shifting, you can take off the cable stops and run the wiring and battery internally.

The components are almost all from the Shimano Ultegra 6800 family. 6800 is the mechanical version of Ultegra, and the performance advances contained are so good you’ll be ecstatic you chose the weight savings and simplicity of cable-actuated shifting. All the drive train, shifting, and braking pieces come from the group, with the wide-range 11-28 eleven-speed cassette and mid-compact 52/36 crank giving you both a huge top gear and a tiny low gear, with 20 stops in between.

Wheel are Shimano’s WH-RS21, a bomb-proof wheelset that is good enough to race. It’s design is trickle-down tech at its best, with advances developed for Dura-Ace wheels carried out more economically, like the wide-flanged hubs, the mixed depth rims, the offset rear rim, and the legendary Shimano angular-contact bearing system. They’re dressed in Continental Ultra Sport folding tires.

BMC also saves a bundle by specifying BMC bars and stem for the bike, with a comfortable ergo shape and shallow drop. These work great, though an easy place to upgrade, as you probably already have a favorite brand and bend of bars.

The BMC Teammachine SLR02 Ultegra bike combines the mid-range frame with mid-range group for a killer performance-to-dollar ratio and a bike that can knock off a Tour champ.
