Strengths:    Climbing, sprinting, overall confort, lightness for money. Very footed

Weaknesses:    Doesn't like heavy impact that much. Nothing else

Bottom Line:   
I did my first 80km on the bike on a well known course so I had a term of comparison with my previous bike, a 2010 Giant TCR Advanced. I bought the 105 setup but changed everything from the Giant to the BCM. I'm using Sram Force, Durace C24 wheels, Rotor Agilis Crank, and a 3t cockpit. The bike is weighting around 6,8kg. Manage to shave 300g from the Giant.

Now for the test ride. On the road it as a very natural riding position and it feels very direct from the pedals to the back wheel, this makes it a very good climber. When you puch it it will go, better than the Giant, feels more alive.

Its very confortable on the road but it doesn't stand medium to large impacts as well as the Giant. Its nimbler but because of its shorter wheel base its not as stable on high speed descents as the Giant. But still very good.

I can say that is an evolution of the Giant, both bikes are very much alike but the BMC feels more updated and more alive.
But are both great bikes to ride.
