Hope you WW like :D , bike weighed in at 6.78kg, still yet to ride hence why steerer to be cut spot on, also just ordered some Arundel Gloss Black Cages, apart from that she is complete

Must say I'm happier than I thought, I think it looks sweet and i'm sure the ride will be even better, big thanks to Herb at Fuel Performance for all his hard work :thumbup: , can't recommend this bloke more highly.

Sorry bout the rushed pics but will get better ones next week once new cages go on.

Wow, that frame looks so much better built up and glistening in the sun. The graphics fit nicer than I thought previously, although I'll still be removing the CHS garbage on mine I think.

Really glad I went for this colour now, the wait becomes even more torturous!

Looking forward to your ride feedback.

Enjoy. :thumbup:

Absolutely fantastic bike. Gloss finish is really perfect on this frame, showing the carbon fiber arrangement very nicely. Reminds me the old Fondriest TF1 EVO with the same finish.
Hope you enjoy it very much ! :thumbup:
Best Regards.

Damn... It's a shame that this color wasn't available when I bought my c59. Amazing bike. :thumbup:

Nice bike, and I like what you're doing with the backyard landscaping.

Very nice indeed, but also think it will look even better with the Mandibles. I've just put them on my bike I've just rebuilt and they look good on any bike.

Save water, get some "life like" artificial installed instead. No maintenance, saves water, recyclable (and made from recycled materials), feels natural, kids (if you have any) won't get hurt if they fall on it. See what discoverspeed did, he can attest to the attributes (see his notes on page 2)

Anyway, nice bike! Never thought I'd like the C59 in Gloss, but there it is and it looks great. Happy cycling ahead!
