I starting my new project with BMC Fourstroke LT.
This is my fifth Forstroke and i like this model so much cause it just works perfectly for me :)
This is not lightweight frame and i decide make some frame tunning. Remove stock painting and make custom links.

Impressive optimization. Are you planning on machining these new links yourself?
