For those who want a road bike that can guarantee a professional racing performance, one recommended road bike for 2012 is the BMC Team machine SLRO1. This bike is perfect for racers who look for function more than anything else as this bike is quite pricey but not aesthetically outstanding.
Using the Weave dampening, a proprietary carbon fiber layup process of BMC, the SLRO1 frame combines light weight, incredible stiffness, and topnotch quality. Its Integrated Skeleton Concept (ISC) helps make the bike a high performance machine but does not help make its looks stand out.
Constructed with the new BB30, the 2012 BMC Team Machine SLR01 Road Bike features a very lightweight frame that comes with an enhanced power transfer to the rear wheel. Its amazing quality and performance have been proven by Cadel Evans, who made a history in the 2011 Le Tour de France as the first Australian to win the event.
