BMC Teammachine SLR03

If you’re looking to spoil someone (including yourself), this BMC Teammachine SLR03 from 2017 may be just the thing. The Bicycle Manufacturing Company of Switzerland has been a presence in the peleton for a decade, and the Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France, the Olympics, World Championships, and grueling Classics. The lower-spec carbon SLR03 offers a pro-like ride, and looks the part. This is a great choice if you’re ready to graduate to your first “serious” road bike. It’s even got a couple of significant upgrades from the stock build: Ultegra 11-sp group and handbuilt Vuelta Corsa Lite wheelset. The 51cm frame fits a rider, 166-174cm (because European, get it!!?), or one roughly 5’5″-5’8″. $1200 takes it!
