BMC's Fourstroke FS02 is your next race bike. BMC's 100mm-travel APS rear suspension platform is built into a light, stiff carbon/aluminum frame for outstanding responsiveness and world-class pedaling efficiency. Fox supplies the fork and shock to give you the best in bump absorption and control. For even more speed, this off-road rocket is kitted out with a Shimano XT drivetrain and XT brakes to scrub speed with authority. What's more, the Fourstroke comes with slick DT Swiss wheels, grippy Onza rubber, an Easton carbon seatpost and a premium Fizik saddle.

This is a preliminary review, as I've only had the FS02 for six days, but I've ridden it hard on and around Mt. Tam for over 12 hours so far, and it is putting big grins on my face. Responsiveness is excellent and the 3 settings (climb, trail and descend) 100 mm travel Fox F and R shocks make it feel like three bikes in one (I'm coming from a hard tail with an elastomer front shock). It's a little light on the front end when climbing steep trails, but not too difficult to keep planted. More to come, but wanted to share my early thoughts. Overall, a great bike so far.
