BMC always puts plenty of work into forming its frame tubes, so it’s no surprise that the GF02 is a study in sharp angles and thin-walled, oversized alloy tubing.
Stylish shaping and functional details
Notable details include a faceted hexagonal top tube, massive square down tube, flat armpit brace, tapered rectangular chainstays with kick-up, boxy 3D dropouts and super-flat double-kinked seatstays.
The top tube is a striking hexagonal number
The full-carbon fork is shared with the premium BMC carbon GranFondo GF01 and has a distinctive shape that starts with a fat top then steps down dramatically at rim level to a narrower, tapering lower blade.
There’s a remarkable amount of practical detail in the frame for the price, too. Mudguard/fender and rack mounts are optional screw-in eyes and both front and rear brake cables are semi-internally routed. While the gear cables themselves are routed externally, the guides are removable if you upgrade to electronic shifting and the post-mount brakes are easy to adjust.
Snappy yet forgiving character
