1: It will take a little bit to get the hood position just right.
2: Holy crap, it feels easier to turn the pedals. The bearings can't make that much difference. Must be the 2 rest days.
3: I'm quite surprised that a saddle this flat wasn't immediately offensive. It's been awhile since I got along with a flatter saddle... or maybe it isn't flat. Perhaps it's round. Maybe even square!

Agreed! Same with the white stem being preferable. This C60 bike looks great!

Agreed! Berk's Lupina is a masterpiece for the backside.
However, I don't think it's "flat." I see a slightly concave sitting position where the nose and tail are slightly higher than the midsection.
Oh, and unfortunately your post office ETA was right...dammit.
I'm liking the gooch cutout and I'm usually partial to them. The List has just enough kick up at the rear that I didn't really have an issue with the lack of relief. Though, it was a little more noticeable once I got back on the Romin while waiting for this saddle.
Bummer about the saddle delivery, Ryan! The Lupina got here super quick, I was hoping the List would have similar luck. At least it should be delivered today though..
I could definitely do some more bolt tuning. Like the heavy arse bolts the Fabrics come with. I have just been too lazy to figure out what the dimensions are for the drivetrain stuff

In the meantime, I've got to get signed up for dental school...
Wow, what a stunning example. I love it. Come to think about it, I do remember something very similar, although more portly. Glad you came to the Campy side. Looks better all Italian. However, I was able to ride 9100, and feel that is the smoothest mechanical group in current production.
This is not my light bike. I have the Zero 7 with Sram Red, but it's a normal build and came in at 6.4kg.
Imaking20 wrote:Descending on this bike is just ridiculous. You just pick a lime and it's almost like it holds itself. This and the C59 are the only bikes where I've thought mid-corner "wow, 5his feels like my old R6"
Hearing over how nice it descends is only making me antsy... I have a hillclimb event coming up with a 30km decent and can't wait to try out my C60....
In the meantime, looks like you've finalized your build...absolutely stunning...Those cranks really compliment the frame... Now ride it hard and hopefully no large upgrades in the pipeline or else you'll literally be "pulling teeth" with the bank account.... Sorry, I couldn't help myself...
