Nothing but carbon nanotubes running through these veins

Abstract:
Sitting at the top of BMC's range, the SLC01 Pro Machine lies boasts a near-100% unidirectional carbon frame reinforced throughout with Easton carbon nanotube-enhanced (CNT) resin in order to decrease weight and supposedly increase overall strength. Little is left untouched by BMC's carbon fiber hands, including the dropouts and integrated seat collar. The company's precision manufacturing techniques are also evident throughout the structure: the integrated headset cartridge bearings ride directly on precision molded bearing seats, and even the internally-routed cable stops are ready to go straight out of the mold. Other than the threaded aluminum bottom bracket shell insert, replaceable rear derailleur hanger, and water bottle mounts, there is barely a shred of aluminum (or any other metal) to be found.
