I would call that C59 perfect if it had black housing.

Almost perfect!! (Except for the zip tie on the rear stay of the C59). If you do that, use at least a white zip tie!
Is that a piece of tape sticking the rear mech cable to the chain stay on the Olympic?

That C59 is BEAUTIFUL! Not because it is a C59 but since it is made with an eye!

The C59 is as close to perfection as I have ever seen. Well done sir.

Thanks for all the positive comments everyone! I did have a very specific idea of what i wanted the C59 to look like :) Although the lightweights havent been being run lately due to some reliability issues. (have broken 2 spokes... and i weigh 73kg). Running enve 6.7's or my H Plus Sons more often than not!

That black zip tie has actually come off now! the cable housings holding the shape i want it to so im not catching it with my shoe anymore. no tape on the Masters rear mech cable, i think thats that little accordion looking tube of rubber that just to prevent the cable scuffing up that lead paint!

Oof! Both are beautiful bikes but the C59 really takes the whole goddamn cake. A bit of culture clash with the DA pedals but that is easily overlooked. :)

Dura ace pedals to match the shimano cassette! ;)

First spoke broke on the rear wheel clean through where it's bonded to the rim. Didn't hit any potholes or anything large out of the ordinary, and on roads I've ridden a million times. Must've been coming off a speed bump or something.

Got a new replacement rear wheel (at 2/3rds the rrp) and in under 120km found one spoke splintered on the leading edge, about 2mm. Lightweight said the would repair it but shipping from aus was going to cost me a bomb, so I got it repaired by a carbon specialist locally. They quoted it must have been a rock strike or leaned it wrongly... Again roads I've ridden a million times and I was never actually off the bike.

Needless to say I'm sticking with enve for now. I feel like the 6.7s are stiffer out of the saddle than the shallow lightweights anyway! Can't speak for the meilenstein of course.
