Bike Check: Pauline Ferrand-Prévot, Filippo Colombo & Elisabeth Brandau's Olympic Edition BMC Fourstrokes

Jul 22, 2021
by Sarah Moore  
BMC has athletes competing in mountain biking, road cycling, and triathlon.


Pauline Ferrand-Prévot, Filippo Colombo, and Elisabeth Brandau have switched from the trade colours they've worn so far this World Cup season to those of their countries in preparation for the Olympics. BMC has created three special Olympic edition bikes for the athletes, with splashes of their nation's colours across the top tube - red, white and blue for France's Ferrand-Prévot, red with a white cross for Switzerland's Filippo Colombo, and yellow, black and red for Germany's Elisabeth Brandau.

Filippo Colombo, Pauline Ferrand-Prévot and Elisabeth Brandau will be racing aboard the BMC Fourstroke on Monday, July 26 and Tuesday, July 27th.

Elisabeth Brandau (GER)



Details:

Frame: BMC Fourstroke 01, size L
Seatpost: RAD seatpost 80mm
Fork: Fox 32 Float Factory SC 100mm
Shock: Fox Float DPS Evol
Shifter and derailleur: SRAM 1x12 Eagle AXS
Crank: SRAM XX1 Eagle
Chainring: Absolute black 34T
Brakes: Magura MT8 Race Line 160mm front and rear
Pedals: Crankbrother Candy 11
Grips: ESI grips
Saddle: Pro Stealth
Stem: BMC 60mm
Bar: Reverse Tracer 680mm
Rims: Duke Chain
Hubs: DT Swiss 240
Spokes: Sapim CX Ray
Tires: Vittoria Barzo front, Mezcal rear


All about the orange details, including the bright ESI grips.

Brandau isn't on the Absolute Absalon team like Ferrand-Prevot and Colombo and so unlike them, she rides Fox suspension. Her Fourstroke is set up with a 100mm Fox 32 Float Factory SC fork and a 100mm Fox Float DPS Evol rear shock.

Brandau is on the Reverse Tracer bar in a narrow 680mm width.

'Elisabeth' is written in fine, gold lettering down the top tube above the BMC logo.

Magura MT8 Race Line brakes will slow Brandau down, with 160mm rotors front and rear.

Ready, set, go.

 700mm bars used by a 165cm woman in a mass start race are not “narrow”.

 Yep. "Appropriately spec'd" is more like it.

 Brandau's bikes always look great. While I'd prefer to still see the orange Tune hubs on her wheels, what I really take issue with is that this is one of the (very) few bikes that might look good with a Factory Orange Fox fork, and she's gone with the black model instead. Why does Fox even make orange forks?

 Curious if Brandau is running Barzo/Mezcal as the article is written or Mezcal/Terreno as most pictures show. The closeup of the top tube looks like a Barzo on the front but the rest of the images look like Mezcal up front. Maybe a last minute change to Barzo/Mezcal due to forecasted rain.

 Too bad they still only offer 80mm of travel on their dropper. Could be a good bike with a realistic amount of drop.
