Looks like and sounds like it weighs the same as 75% of the rest of the bikes here. Is that a black cassette though?

It's a SRAM Red 11-28 Cassette.

Mine red 11-28 isn't black. I want a black cassette. Is it the lighting? How does it shift with SR? With di2 or indexed dura ace bar ends SRAM doesn't seem to shift as well as a matched cassette.

It only looks black as it has been used and the bike/drivetrain needs some cleaning.

Shifting is flawless with Campy SR. I also use those wheels/cassette on my Parlee Z1 fitted with DA9000 mechanical. No problem there either.

Interesting build....similar to mine. Expect mine to pop up in the "Introduce Yourself" catetory.

How are those wheels treating you?

I like them a lot; ~1,000g for the pair, extremely stiff, and very good braking in the dry. It gets trickier in the wet though, especially with the Corima cork pads.

Looks great, Nael!
How does the C60 compare to the Z1?

Hey buddy!!

Z1 is more compliant and geometry slightly less aggressive than the C60.

C60 descends with more confidence; it has more the character of a racing bike than the Parlee. I would take the latter for a relatively longer ride though.

Very nice! Like the seat and seatpost combo, needs an AX stem to match!
I'm surprised it doesn't weigh less especially with the EE brakes.

The frame is not the lightest on the market. 6.34 is almost as low as it gets for a C60.

Beautiful build. Corimas were a solid choice

False. It's a colnago and that means it's a class onto itself.
