BMC Team Elite TE29/SRAM X0 Complete Bike - 2012

BMC Team Elite TE29/SRAM X0 Complete Bike - 2012

The 29 inch wheel standard has reinvigorated cross-country bikes, and what once was considered a fad is the new world order. If you haven't added a 29er to your stable yet, the BMC Team Elite TE29/Sram X0 Complete Bike hits all the high notes and will almost certainly complement your riding style.

As a frame, the BMC Team Elite TE29/Sram X0 Complete Bike sounds blissful, but that's just part of the equation. Without the right parts a frame is just a piece of wall art. We set up the Team Elite with choice components like a SRAM X0 2x10 drivetrain, including a 36 -22 X0 crank, X0 shifters, and an X0 rear derailleur. Taking care of front shifting is an X7 derailleur, while stopping duties are handled by Avid Elixir 7 disc brakes. BMC Scor MKII stem and handlebars, and a...
