Picked up a real nice SLC01 a month or so back to add to the collection and finally got to give it to my wife for her birthday the other day, also picked an almost new set of Fulcrum 3's for it. Should have it on the road for her in a few weeks as just ordered up a 6800 group from Ribble, she can't wait. :p

I have the same frame in a large size. Very comfortable. The stock fork is a little soft for me at 200# but for your wife should be fine. Lucky lady.

The chainstays come in very tight to the wheel, and with Campy Neutrons which have an asymmetrical rear wheel, the NDS spokes would brush the chainstay.

Well that didn't take long to get bit by the wife's new to us BMC, casually started keeping an eye out for a red one in a 55 to match hers and found this part naked one, I love the look of some naked carbon bikes and this one really caught my eye. Found it on ebay and was able to pick it up in person from a couple that had a few BMC's. The frameset is how I bought it and will build up with 6800 Ultegra, The second picture is when the previous owner had it built with campy.
