I am not a racer, but enjoy fast recreational rides and never know what type of terrain I am going to ride depending on my mood. So last year I bought my first crosser, an entry level bike from a major manufacturer and while the bike was a blast to ride I wanted something better. After much searching and talking to racers and other riders I decided to purchase the Cross Machine and build it up.
I have been quite impressed with the snappy and lively ride. The bike draws attention from fellow cyclists wherever I go with it as there are not many BMC’s around these parts and the frame design certainly stands apart from anything else out there.
I hope you enjoy my pictures and want you to know that your site was a great help in deciding how to build this bike up. Keep up the great work!!!!
Thanks again Jim! If anyone out there has a sick Cross bike send it to me at plusonelap @ gmail dot com.
