I'm also interested in the brakes... and if the rumored front hydration was implemented.

Side note: does anyone know what the UCI's rules are going to be going forward for TT bikes? Not that I'm fast enough to be bound by them but I'm thinking about keeping my SC for TTs going forward.

I'll start thinking about it if I ever make it up to Cat 1 :p

I like the looks of this bike but how aero is it. I hate the look of the new Ceverlo but I bet it is aero.

At least with this bike I could still use a majority of my go to parts.

Would like to see this up close for the front brake set up and aerobar/stem set up.

I love me some BMC, but I'm not a fan of how disjointed the seat post assembly looks.

Nothin -wrong- with it, but pretty plain and dated looking compared with other new bikes. Was it really necessary to hide this behind a secret wall at interbike?! Usually that implies its something exciting....

The BMC, Canyon Speedmax, and (insert current superbike here) look boring and unimaginative compared to the new Diamondback and *alleged* Cervelo.

And junior and U23. Not trying to nitpick - just don't want some jr. parent to read this thread and go buy their kid a Cervelo P5x for Christmas so they can try to qualify for Jr. Worlds.

Agree it looks like a pretty standard double diamond design but it is a very solid option. The fork looks very clean and it's not hit-you-over-the-head obvious that they put the brakes behind the fork.

This!

Cannondale did something similar a while back IIRC.

Don't like it. There's no flow to the shape. It's almost like they suddenly realised "shit we haven't put a seat post in" or it reminds me of kids in crappy cars with giant spoiler nailed to the back. Completely incongruent!

In fact why do TT bikes not go with fixed seat posts like Giants Propel Advanced SL?

The fixed ISP frames can be painful to travel with since no removable seat post.

Because ISPs are one of the worst 'innovations' to be foisted on the world by the bike industry. The Propel manages to combine several bad ideas (ISP, brake calipers, 1.25 steerer) in one bike.

The big issue I see is that stores are so afraid to cut them that they just leave the saddle way too high.

As for the BMC - it looks like a nice incremental progression from the old bikes. Which is where UCI legal design is at - not much that can be done within the rules to improve on bikes that are already good.

Integrated seat posts are a huge PITA to travel with and confer minimal benefits.

Looks great, but it doesn't seem to have any direct-mount storage bosses on the top tube. Hope in the final production model it has that option, as the frame design at the front does not seem to allow to move the storage forward enough if we have to strap it round the top tube!

Very Canyon Speedmax /Trek SpeedConcept looking.. not impressed. I don't think it's enough to make me get rid of my TM01.

It's even not enough to make me get rid of my TM02, and I am yearning for a new bike. Guess it will have to be the P5X then.

It looks like a Canyon, a Cube, and a Speed Concept had a love child. Which is all well and good.

But then you have the offerings from Dimond, Ventum, TriRig, Diamondback, and the new Cervelo and the BMC looks boring as shit.

Exactly, which is the same issue with the Ceepo...

what if you want to change saddles or decide to change seat height? doesn't appear to be much if any leeway for that. ie a tall rail saddle to low

Are you referring to the ISP? They usually come with a set of thin spacers so that you can make micro adjustments in height after it is cut. Usually gives you at least a couple cm in either direction....but yeah, you gotta make sure you cut it accurate the first time to get it in a good height range.

"Spy shots". Yeah, they just happened to find a guy JRA in his small ring/big cog combo, with three matching water bottles.

Really?
