People still ask if my 2010 Pro Machine is brand new!

I do like my BMC, it's a shame about the frame warranty.

Orca is not as busy, less curvy, no convex tube shapes, straighter stays, etc.
Orca is "current traditional", it should age fine.
Color is and will be key.

Dude, when did you move out of Texas? Cycling in the winter is pretty hard core, getting crazy slip angle, while leaned in, on the snow and ice is terrifying, but awesome.

You realize this is a bike marketed to females?

I think the frame itself will age just fine. The graphics don't wow me now and they probably still won't in 10 years, but that's what paint is for.

What you need to do is ride both on your favorite trail. I was HT all the way, light, could climb and sprint well. I could (fatter and weaker now) climb in the top percentile of technical MTB climbs on our club rides so I didn't want to give that up. Then I tried one in a parking lot and thought it was kind of ok but squishy. Then I got out on the trails and it was pretty good but not a huge deal - that is until I jumped back on my hard tail and was wondering if my back tire was pumped to 80psi. I was quite surprised at the amount of absorption its giving you over roots and rocks etc. So now I ride and older FSR XC Pro and wish I could get a new 27.5 carbon full-susp in a bright color with XTR group. My pivots are getting sloppy and some days I want for more travel and lighter weight. So instead I ride a YZ450F and get 11+ inches of travel - ha. Can't have money for the best in all catagories - got to spread it around a bit sensibly.........

That's more like it, get some knobbies on those tires, and hit the woods ! That's even the color I'd choose.

I believe it lowers drag. I have no explanation why its not front and rear, maybe a rules thing.

When two cyclist males embrace each other, they buy a tri bike. When they go public with their embrace, they buy a tear-drop helmet. When they explore watersports, they buy a disc wheel.

Moots Vamoots DA7900. Deda bar, ITM stem, selle italia slr, hand built clinchers.
