Greetings - been a lurker, collecting some fine info from the members here for my current bike build. Thought I'd share.

With a C60 I wasn't going for an ultralight bike, but wanted something super stable/predictable and bomber as well as being classy with stylistic staying power since I don't switch bikes very often....is a fairly obvious build for a C60 (campy) but I really like her looks and am extremely happy with the performance thus far...pretty amazing bike actually.

I shaved the steerer tube down since photo was taken, and switched saddles..

Looking great, take some more pics and spin it round to the chainring side. I notice you're using Conti's which have always been my go to tyre. I experimented disastrously with the veloflex but recently tried the Vittoria Corsa G+ and they're a step up in smoothness and feel with the boras so I'd recommend giving those a try. They also look great with the grey sidewalls matching the dark label boras.

Looks awesome, but agree with above, more photos please. Make sure the chain is on the big ring, small cog. :)

Here you go!

c60rider, indeed quite a few people have echoed the same sentiment as you regarding the Vittoria tyres and will plan to throw a set on very soon. Should improve the overall ride quality nicely - appreciate the rec....

Great looking set-up, the blacked out look with the tricolour is sweet!
