This BMC Alpenchallenge AMP Sport LTD is an unexpected arrival in our inventory. It brings incredible materials technology from BMC, and Shimano's excellent STEPS power-assist mid-drive motor together for a brilliant high performance e-hybrid. This is a pre-owned e-bike, and is the only BMC we've ever had.
BMC has been in the carbon fiber business for years, building Tour de France winning bicycles and learning with every victory. With every victory -and defeat- comes lessons for the materials engineers at BMC. This Alpenchallenge AMP Sport LTD uses BMC's Premium Grade carbon fiber with faceted frame shapes that reduce overall weight. The bike's torsional strength is also improved, bestowing razor-sharp handling in every turn. To keep road chatter at bay, the Alpenchallenge AMP Sport LTD boasts 10mm of Micro Travel Technology in the rear seat stays. No pivots are required for this feature, reducing overall weight and maintenance. Flat-mount disc brake installation is also lighter than any post-mount version, and also improves brake pad wear.
Shimano's STEPS E-8000 motor and BT-E8010 battery are found at the heart of the Alpenchallenge AMP Sport LTD. With it, the rider gets three levels of assist. A bar-mounted color display and one-finger button controls allow for intuitive operation. The battery can be locked onto the seat tube cradle of the bike for parking with the supplied key.
BMC wanted to equip this machine with flagship components, and they chose well. Shimano's brilliant Ultegra RX rear derailleur and 11-speed RS700 flat-bar shifter makes gear changes lightning-quick, and boasts industry-leading reliability. An 11-34T Shimano Ultegra cassette is matched with a 44T single-ring crankset, delivering a useful gearing range for rides through town or out in the countryside. DT Swiss supplies the alloy AMP 1600 wheels, complete with stainless steel spokes and an aero rim profile. Vittoria's 700x30c Corsa Control road tires boast excellent grip and a smooth ride quality. Shimano RS600 hydraulic disc brakes deliver excellent stopping power in all conditions, wet or dry. The cockpit wasn't overlooked, either. A Fizik Antares R3 road saddle sits atop a carbon fiber AMP "D" Premium Carbon seatpost, soaking up road chatter. An integrated stem and alloy handlebar offers a comfortably neutral rider position.
This is a pre-owned bicycle that has been given a thorough tune-up and safety check.
A Shimano EC-E6002 home charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
