Daniel Oss’ BMC Teammachine SLR01 Pro Bike


– Today we have the
privilege of looking at this BMC Teammachine SLR01 of strongman, Daniel Oss, who has
helped his team to victory both at the World
Championships team time trial on two occasions to a gold medal, and also to a stage win
in a team time trial at the Tour de France. Now BMC have had this Teammachine out now for some time. And I think we can probably
expect them to release something new at some
point in the 2017 season. And the same at the moment,
goes for the groupsets as well. That is of course, provided by Shimano, who have been a longtime
sponsor of the BMC squad. But this is still the 9000 groupset. I’ve just been speaking to the mechanics, and probably by the time
this video comes out, they will have put the 9100
groupset onto their bikes, ready for this season. But here in Dubai tour, they’re
back on the older stuff. It’s an 11 up through to 28
cassette here at the rear. It’s the front and rear
derailleurs as well. They have the SRM cranks
with the 53 by 39t chainrings and the shift is up there at the front. And he’s not choosing to run
any kind of satellite shifters on his bars. Fizik provides the saddles to the team, and Daniel is using the Aliante model with the carbon rails here, whilst it’s 3T who provide
both the stem and the bars. Now as you can probably see, Daniel’s a pretty big man, 1.90m tall, and he’s running a 14cm stem up there, although it’s not completely
slammed should I say, and it’s also not a negative angle, so he’s not particularly
low at the front end, however, he is opting for
some pretty narrow bars. They measure 42cm from edge to edge. So for a man of his size,
that’s pretty narrow. And also of note are the crank lengths, just 172.5mm, so fairly short for a man of his stature. Elite provide the bottle cages, that is their Custom Race Plus model as well as the bottles
themselves, of course as well. The wheels at the moment
are the Dura-Ace C50s they will be replaced fairly shortly, as they no longer have the
C50 model from 2017 onwards and they will be choosing
between the C40s and C60s. The tyres are provided by Vittoria they are the open Corsa 25mm in width and they’ve got those
tan side walls as well. And I think that is pretty much it. I did do some measurements before we started filming this video, and it’s got one of the highest saddles I’ve ever measured on a pro bike. 82.5cm between the saddle here and the center of the cranks. And the distance between
the tip of the saddle measured horizontally to
the center of the bars is 62cm as well, which just leads me to weigh the bike. 7.35kg, not too bad at all. I will note once again that
down here, as well as the sensor that the organisers use for the race, there’s also a speed sensor from SRM, combined with this
magnet here on the spoke, so another rider who likes to use the
accuracy of a speed sensor versus relying on the
GPS of the SRM head unit. Now if you liked this video, please give it a thumbs up down below and make sure you subscribe to the channel if you haven’t done so already,

tour of the BMC team bus, we did that a couple of years ago and you can find that in the
bottom corner down there. Or if you’d like to see what goes into making one of these Fizik saddles, we’ve got that in the other corner just down there.
