Strengths:    Frame is very stiff.. all of your power goes straight to the rear tire. Tire clearance is huge rides well in the mud.

Weaknesses:    Price $$$$$$$

Bottom Line:   
Great cyclocross bike… frame is stiff and handles well in all conditions. I live in New Hampshire so this bike doubles as my winter ride; this helps me justify the cost (at least to myself). For cross geometry it’s still comfortable for a 4+ hour endurance ride. This bike will leap out in front of you when you sprint out of the saddle. If you have the cake this is your cross machine.

Strengths:    Big name bike with normal cyclocross frameset pricing.
Super big tire clearance on chainstays.
Comfortable ride and excellent racing characteristics.
Comes with high-end Easton Cyclocross Carbon fork.
Slick red/black paint job matches the top of the line BMC Pro road frameset.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This BMC version of a cross bike is a great setup. The massive chainstays are super strong and have some of the largest clearance for any cross frame out there. You can run any commuter/paved path type tire you want - the clearance for mud in racing cyclocross is excellent.
Carbon seatstays are strong and compliant.
Great all around bike for training or competitive cyclocross racing.
Added bonus is the paint scheme matches the full carbon pro roadbike with it's slick black and red colors.
Beefy shaped downtube and T-shaped top tube are truely outstanding on the frame design giving it good structure strength.
