The CB stem is very very short for someone 188cm and riding a 54s... 90mm?

No its a 100mm and its perfect...maybe just my short arms. The jury is still out on the stem, might get something custom painted to suit the frame....thoughts?

New stem and bars are on the way. I am wanting to get them painted to suit the frame but having a bit of trouble matching colours. Might just have to settle for a Matt black. Will keep you all posted

Starting to adopt the same thinking. But there's alway something else to change...isn't there?

Hi there, considering the c59 my self before the c60 with its slope and bb30 comes. But is this colorscheme 2013 or? and would you recommend the frame and bike in general?

Hey, this is an 2013 colour scheme and i would certainly recommend it! I have had only had a Ridley and a Canyon aeroad and its has these bike covered. Its a 54s and it fits my 187cm frame perfectly...i cant give stress how great the ride is.
I have just bought an integrated stem/bar and are waiting for it to be custom painted...once done i will post some pics.

In summary..buy it!

Taking the initiative from a fellow C59 rider on WW (Mapei model), i bought an intergrated stem/bar (Pro Stealth EVO) setup and had them painted. My painter had 2 goes at it due to issues spraying on the clear coat. Because the clear coat is a little milky in colour, the more coats he put on, the more its dulls the paint. At first he put on 4 coats of clear (which is his standard) but as it dried the green went a bit blueish, so he striped it all back and started again. Second time he put only two coats on which worked better. Its not an exact match, but it think its about 98% good.

This setup didn't really add too much weight. Its 6.9kg with Corimas and 6.7kg with the RSYS on. Fairly unimpressive weights but it rides like a dream!
