  • Not sure I quite get this concept. BMC design and build beautiful and functional performance oriented bicycles. Bicycles that can stand on their own aesthetically without the input of a company that designs cars. Are BMC are so worried that their bikes aren’t cool enough that they have to ride the coat tails of a car company? I put this in the same category as that sad Asus laptop that was ‘styled’ by Ferrari. Brands should have the guts to stand on their own.

  • It is actually clearly Lamborghini that would have reached out to BMC to make a bike for Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary. It is not BMC looking for publicity. It is Lamborghini looking for a high quality product to sell as a collectors item to rich Lamborghini fans who have probably never ridden a real bike in their lives.

    It is not uncommon or wrong. Seeing as they are also completely different products, it is really no one riding on anyone’s coat tail.
