Hey guys havent posted in a while but I have a few new build I will be showing. The first one is my c59 that i just finished up! Built it up with all the new DA 9070 and lightweight wheels. I was very surprised with the weight. Comes in at 14.5 as pictured.

Here are a few pictures!

The seatpost looks quite "massive" but it is a beautiful bike

Well that is rather nice. If I was nitpicking I am not keen on the Garmin mount or the white zip tie around the stem. Zip ties come in black too!

Like everything but this saddle. I guess you find it comfortable...

Beautiful bike! Weight is not very very low but overall it is fine when you take a look at the components. The c59 is not a real lightweight frame comparing to other high-end frames in the same size. The other aspect that makes this bike not a real lightweight bike is the electronic groupset and same heavier parts. Overall this bike will ride like a dream.

and which stem?

the Barfly 2.0 Garmin mount is designed to attach the 9070 "brain" box on the bottom...sounds like it might be win-win for you.

this is a lovely bike, give us a ride review?

I didnt build this bike to be light just was to be my comfortable bike. My 10.5 lb wilier is my lightweight bike... The stem is an extralite and the zip tie is now gone. Just used it to hold it while I was building it. The bars are aluminum PRO vibe 7s bars.
