Expirience with the BMC Twostroke AL FIVE

BMC Twostroke AL FIVE Review A minimal elastomeric buffer in the rear is intended to increase the comfort of the Twostroke AL FIVE compared to conventional hardtails. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the BMC Twostroke AL FIVE. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. The seating position is sporty. Looking at only the shifting system of the rest of the bikes you have to say that other manufacturers in the price range under 1500 Eurouse higher quality components. When viewing the 13,7 kg, its apparent: there are lighter Racebikes in this price range. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 1199 Euro, BMC provides more than the competitors in the same price range. The guarantee of 5 years proves that BMC is behind its products. Pay attention when selecting your size: the BMC Twostroke AL FIVE sizing runs big.
